Forum Etiquette

When talking to anyone, irrespective of medium, do not type with the Caps Lock key TURNED ON. It’s known as ‘shouting’, and is considered extremely rude and provocative. Similarly, overuse of abbreviations can cause offense. If a recipient has to fight to comprehend a confusing cryptic message, the sender has failed and you may not even get a response.

Search First

To save everybody time, use the search tools that this forum provides to look for similar topics, and check them before you post. If your research draws a blank, it’s now time to post.

Help Us to Help You

Ensure that you provide all relevant data that might help in diagnosing the problem; this should include your PCs specifications, external hardware and what fixes you have attempted. Most members here at PCReview are only too pleased to help out, but can only give effective advice if you provide detailed explanations of the problem or fault.

Abusive & Illegal Material

Pornography, Warez, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form. PCReview.co.uk does not condone or promote piracy of any kind. This specifically includes piracy of

  • Video material (copying DVDs or encoded movies via the internet)
  • Music not specifically permitted for download in this way
  • Games and other applications leaked, downloaded or copied

Why do we take this position? Because doing the above is theft and illegal.

Whether or not you agree with file sharing and whether or not you agree with the ways the big corporations try to combat this 'problem', you may not post anything on these forums which can be interpreted by our moderators as directly promoting piracy.

Flaming & Derogatory Remarks

Flaming will not be tolerated, whether it be directed at another forum member or a business. Posts deemed to fall into this category will be removed.

PMs & Emails

Please, do not contact individual members for a private consultation as they will just delete your message … use the forum, where, you can be better assisted by all. PMs are for private discussion which is not relevant to the forum and can be thought of as a local e-mail system.

User Name Policy

Please note that the User-name should conform to the following guidelines and it should not be changed once set. Forum members are required to register with a displayed name or user-name which does NOT feature an email address, an obvious company name, or names that may carry a message or meaning that may be interpreted as inappropriate. Admin decision in this regard is final and user-names deemed inappropriate for the forum will be deleted or renamed.


Everyone is able to insert a forum signature at the bottom of their posts by modifying the user profile. Please keep these quite short and clean so it doesn't interfere with the general forum posting. Small images are allowed, but no HTML. Links in signatures are not allowed unless permission has been sought & given by an administrator. Any signatures not complying will be deleted.


Foul Language and obscene images will not be tolerated. This site is family friendly, and all posts and posters must respect the integrity of the site.

In addition, you may not deliberately misspell, or substitute punctuation or other special characters in filtered words to circumvent any profanity filters of the forums you are posting on.


Posting of unsolicited messages on the forum to advertise your services are not acceptable. If you post spam, your post will be deleted and your account banned.
