Some fool dropped my desktop computer on the floor and the casing came off. I have now replaced it and the computer appears to be working fine, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any safe diagnostic tests I could run on the PC just to make sure? I found a Microsoft one but it requires the test program to be saved on a CD-ROM and I don't have a CD or floppy drive, only USB ports.

I am running Windows XP SP3.

Thank you!

In the absence of error messages or indications that there is a problem...I would assume that all is good.

There's no real diagnostic test available to common users that will check a system...there are various tests which check the functionality of a given component.

If it were me...I would just open the case and double-check all the connections...in the absence of problems.
