I just spent a fortune having a PC Repair Shop diagnose my computer only to find nothing wrong. I was experiencing a situation where during POST, once my computer found my video card, I got a steady cursar and an uninterrupted beep. They never found the problem, but I eventually figured out that my USB ports on the rear of my CPU did not like my keyboard plugged in, but had no problem when I plugged into the front USB ports. I still have not figured out why this is a problem, but at least the machine now boots up and runs fine.
I am looking for (if it exists), and application that is a startup CD, that I can boot from and run diagnostics against my hardware to find any problems. Is there a software out there like that?
