I was in the process of searching for a video card to replace the one that has went bad in my system.
Before I dig deep into the video cards, I was wondering if there was a program that I can run to diagnose the existing hardware in the system, possibly to find out
the health of the computer parts? Is there a specific one that I can use to post results, and allow a professional to read them?
The problem is, I have seen people post results from diagnostic programs, but I would not know how to read them.

I'm hoping my objective is clear, and appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this.

It appears I am still having freezing issues without using my video card now.. So that would mean I'm in the wrong forum =P
But I am still wondering if using a diagnostic program can show any faults from my system? I have ran out of ideas of what could be the problem.

If it was freezing issues thne it would go into the Internal Hardware section. I have requested the topic to be moved to right section.
