Depends on your skills and pocket book.

For me I have my background of electronics repair, design and embedded design as well as my programming skills to draw on. Others may have to use their pocketbook to pay others to get the problem resolved.

I think the answer is simple. You do it or find someone that can do it.

It depends on your own computer skills doesn't it.

I can solve many problems that I encounter with my computer system, but many others I need help, and I will seek assistance from those who know more, like in forums such as these.

If you have a particular problem that you cannot immediately solve yourself, then its a good idea to call into a forum like this and ask away.

I see you have posted here before. Is there anything particular that you need help with that hasn't been resolved elsewhere?

No one knows everything, while I am pretty fair at hardware I am not the greatest on software and many times have been stuck and required assistance. You go as far as you can (without screwing things up to badly) and then call someone who knows.
