Generic Troubleshooting Page

Recommended Posts

That would depend on the complexity. Disabling processing methods like f.lux would be under basic since it's all about eliminating third-party interference. Other stuttering causes will be more about determining bottlenecks or choosing between driver versions, so that would be more of an advanced thing.

I have redesigned the introduction and navigation. Basic troubleshooting has been merged into the introduction page, and the first steps for each page are presented more prominently.

 

Pages for Windows Vista and Windows 8 are no longer included due to support ending for these versions (extended support ended last year for Windows 8 and will end for Windows Vista on April 11, 2017).

 

Anyway, see what you think.

Wtf? Since when were we caring for official damns? :s

If any, the only criteria I'd see to hide something is popularity. But this only if space was really all that constraint.

 

For the remainder, wow, pretty nicely of a good page.

Do we have statistic for most searched fixes btw? xD

In hindsight, it's smart to already present there some.. flesh, I mean especially basic troubleshooting (which in your connotation is what I was imagining as "good practices")

And I was also going to critcizie you for duplication "install directx"... But yeah, you are totally right instead: unless they see the "error window" buzzword, some people will never really get it.

 

but aren't sound/controller/graphics pages a bit too much hidden?

I have rebuilt the example as the Troubleshooting Hub. This separates issues by category instead of OS. The starting page includes some example problems to help guide the reader.

Troubleshooting information from the glossary pages would be moved to the troubleshooting pages.
