    Thumbs Up Notice about posting DxDiag text for assistance

    Greetings all,

    Whilst trying to read through the queries I came to the conclusion that there is "alot of DirectX info that is not needed to troubleshoot the problems that users may be having. Thus this recommended listing that you can cut/paste into your requests.

    This will go a long way to helping us (meaning moderators and admin) and others provide quick answers.

    These are the parts of the DxDiag.txt file that are really needed for trouble shooting
