    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

most computers come with a way to take the system back to factory new settings. sometimes it's in your programs sometimes it's a disk or disks that came with your system.

if you are trying to transfer files - i found the best way for me to do this is to buy an external usb drive i put all my files on it. then run a virus checker on them then plug it into you new computer and all your files will be available.

A program called "Drive Copy" is excellent for coping one drive to another. I have bought many Versions of Drive Copy over the years, and the program always works very well. It has simple to use instructions. There are numerous options.

Go to Comp USA or Circuit City read the Box for "Drive Copy". It is just a CD, that you pop in your CD drive. I don't remember what the cost of the program was, last time I bought it. There are many cheaper copycat versions of Drive Copy, but I only recommend Drive Copy.

Oh ya, you can go into safe mode (XP). You can restore to an earlier point if your system comes up in normal mode.

  • start
  • all programs
  • accessories
  • system tools
  • system restore

A little more guts:

Hold down the F8 key when you boot up. When the diagnostics screen comes up look at the bottom. It says press F8 key to troubleshoot. Press F8 key it will take you to a restore screen. At this level you can also start in Safe Mode, boot logging, Normal Mode, or diagnostics. Just follow directions for restore system to original condition.

This will not erase files, but it will restore the computer to the original system conditions that you bought it in. This will not restore any new device drivers that you have added since buying the computer. You will have to reinstall any drivers needed for peripheral devices that you have added. Check your computer manuals for this procedure.
