Hello!
Are these tools any help??
Click on Start= accessories=System Information. Click tools at the top.What are these? I never see them mentioned any where. Are they any help if you are having problems. When I clicked on mine they all said no problems. I guess that's a good sign. I have never seen anyone suggest these before. Always curious !!
Thank you!:wink:

Hello!
Sorry! I left out a step.
Click Start=All Programs=Accessories= Tools=System Information.
At the top it says tools. If you click tools, a drop down list of tools.appears.On one of them you can test sound ect..One of them says DR. Watson.Sorry I'm not explaining this very well.

Oh you are talking about the System Diagnostic tools. They are good to run, and if they report no issues then you are fine.

I prefer running memtest86 to test for any memory issues, hard drive tools from the manufacturer to test for drive issues, as I really do not trust an operating system to tell me whats wrong with my computer, because it is virtually impossible for MS to know every hardware issue that can arise on different computing platforms and hardware configurations.

Thank you sir. I added more RAM and made a CD of memtest86. I passed that also, so I guess I'm doing good.
Thank you for your reply's.I try to learn at least one new thing every day. I have a seagate program that tests my drives. Is it any good??
