That's by no means certain. Often, problems like that can
only be solved by someone sitting in front of the system
in question and poking around in it.

Debugging obscure problems remotely via usenet is extremely
difficult, and it's even more difficult if the question
essentially just consists of "This doesn't work, please
help me!".

If you don't get a response to a question like that, it's
not because people are refusing to help. It's because
nobody happens to have seen that exact set of symptoms
before, so without further information, they *can't*
help.
