    You don't. Instead, you upload the image to a web server somewhere,
    then include a link to it in your message.

    There are plenty of free online storage services where you can save a
    file which is a screen/window capture. Then put a link to that file in
    your post.

    One doesn't post images in text-only newsgroups ... period.

    If you feel unable to restate the error message in words then place the
    image on s website and post a link to it here with an explanation of the
    circumstances associated with the error generation.

    Post an image to one of the image hosting sites.

    For example, this is the HDTune result for my hard drive.

    try this

    If I understood your question correctly, you need to set a error image as your desktop background.

    To do this, first take a screen shot of the desired error message(press ctrl+printscreen when you have error message) and save it as JPG file. Later open that file--> right click on it and select "set as desktop background"

    Sounds like he works for Charter tech support, "If I understood your
    question correctly. . ."
    Not only did he NOT understand the question, he didn't give a solution to
    the OP's question. But his statement is correct on how to make the error
    message your background LOL!!

    You cannot post images here, but images of errors are certainly
    helpful, so here is a method to share yours:

    To create and email/post/print a screenshot:

    Press the Print Scrn button to copy your entire screen to the Windows
    clipboard.

    Press Alt Print Scrn to copy just the active window to the Windows
    clipboard.

    Open MS Paint:

    Start, Programs, Accessories, Paint

    When Paint opens, press CTRL-V to paste the clipboard, save the new
    Paint file
    to your desktop or someplace you can remember. JPG files take up less
    hard
    disk space than BMP files and are just as readable.

    Make as many screenshots as you need. Practice makes perfect. Be
    careful your
    screenshot does not contain any personal information. Practice
    viewing your images
    before you upload them to be sure they are okay.

    Some sites will let you attach a file directly to your post. If the
    site has some kind of
    attachment/upload function it is usually easiest just to use it.

    If there is no such function in your message board to upload files,
    then use a free
    third party image hosting WWW site.

    Create a free account on some free picture hosting web site. You can
    always remove
    your account later if you want. Here are some free image hosting
    sites:

    http://www.imageshack.us/
    http://photobucket.com/

    Using your free account, upload your screenshot(s) (the JPG or BMP
    files) to the
    site and it will return to you a URL web address (a Direct Link) for
    your new image(s)
    which you can paste the Direct Link in a message post, email, etc.

    Post that Direct Link web address back here in your response and we
    can click on the
    link address and see your screenshot. Post as many as you need - the
    sites are free.

    When you are done, what you post for others to use should look
    something like this:

    Although usenet purists may frown at posting images HERE at
    microsoft.public.whatever newsgroups, the server will accept them and serve
    them, if they are not too large. For example, I have attached an example
    that can be seen in Outlook Express 6.

    As Jose said, saving your cropped image as JPG makes a much smaller file,
    with only minor loss in quality. Saving simple images such as this one, as
    ..PNG, which is a lossless compression, can result in an image file smaller
    than the JPG version. I don't know if .PNG files can be viewed in as many
    newsreaders as JPG.

    For some error messages, such as this one, you can also just highlight the
    message and hit Control-C, then paste the result into Notepad. Then copy
    that to your message to your newsreader, something like this:

    ---------------------------
    clac
    ---------------------------
    Windows cannot find 'clac'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then
    try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click
    Search.
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    It's just another Egghead Maroon misinforming another about how to ...
    WHAT ? Make the error message their Desktop BACKGROUND ? Is that what
    "Ramu Soft" recommended ? Yeegadazooks !!! Now I've heard everything !

    Yep. That was what was posted. That's some answer to

    > How does one post an image file here that contains an image of an error

    OK, I'll give it a shot ... grab a Polaroid, snap a picture of it, and
    mail it to:

    Microsoft Corporation
    One Microsoft Way
    Redmond, WA 98052-6399
