    I know there are allot of knowledgable people here but I was wondering where everyone goes for the help that they cant find here.

    Google

    Its the answer to every single question everyone has ever posted here. A little effort goes a long way.

    In the past I spent an enormous amount of time in a number of computer related forums.
    The one I found the best was a burning forum where there was a big number of real sharp regulars. Last time I tried to go there it had been converted to a DVD board. I will try and dig the addy up and get back to you.
    For now, the following site was pretty fair too. Just go to "discussions" from their homepage.

    AnandTech is good. I find that I usually use Google to search Usenet posts. Generally someone's had the same problem & solved it there. Experts Exchange can be helpful too.

    Yea Google/Usenet is the best. Just type your question and chances are someone else asked the exact same thing and got several answers.

    There's also arstechnica.com and #help on EFNet.

    I find that windrivers.com is a nice "quick browse" service.

    Near the bottom of the page they list all the latest driver updates, MS tech articles, virus updates, hardware reviews, interesting slashdot articles, etc. With one quick read every morning I can stay informed about the stuff most important to IT folk.

    If you own a Dell, they have online forums for hardware/software problems.
