This page is overly long and poorly organized. Possible ideas for reorganizing:
 
* Split the Troubleshooting section off to a separate page
 
::Possible; that is the longest section, and the most likely to grow even further.
 
::Splitting off only the Warning and Error Messages subsection to a new page is also a possibility, and less disruptive. That subsection may have the most potential for expansion.
 
* More radically, put each section on a subpage and make the main FAQ page a table of contents to those pages
 
::This would greatly increase the maintenance burden, as that page would have to be manually kept up-to-date. Probably not a good idea.
 
* Create more subgroupings like the Graphics, Sound, and Networking sections; possibly Fonts and Input Devices
