What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

Hardware questions and Stack Exchange

Stack Exchange has websites for asking questions about computer programming, but there isn't a site for questions and answers about computer hardware. Users need to be able to ask questions about hardware troubleshooting, how basic comportments work, &c.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It already exists: (for hardware, also Server Fault to some extent) and Electrical Engineering for components. See for all the current sites and for sites that are being proposed. – jonsca Sep 6 '11 at 11:28

i dont think superuser is fully committed for computer hardware..!! – Jeyanth Kumar Sep 6 '11 at 11:31
@Jeyanth I think it would depend on the question a bit; see the FAQ "... computer hardware ... computer software ..." – Marc Gravell Sep 6 '11 at 11:34
thanks Mark....! – Jeyanth Kumar Sep 6 '11 at 11:36
why is that "i can accept this answer after 2 minutes"..? – Jeyanth Kumar Sep 6 '11 at 11:38
@Jeyanth in part, to allow a number of different answers time to be written and posted – Marc Gravell Sep 6 '11 at 11:44
Don't forget about Electrical Engineering for hardware hacking. – Won't Sep 6 '11 at 15:34
Is there some StackExchange project where I could ask a question about DIY repair of my printer? – Paul Oct 20 '13 at 19:55

Have a look at - you can create a proposal there if there's nothing that matches what you like ...

Maybe comes close to what you're suggesting.
