    More and more, I am faced with hardware problems (as opposed to malware or OS corruption) on computers I'm asked to diagnose.

    Can anyone recommend or suggest a good Hardware diagnostic utility or utilities that will make my job easier? At this point, going the old route of unhooking one component at a time (or unhooking all and adding one back in at a time) is taking its toll on me. Spending $$ on a good reliable software tool that can be run from a USB drive, CD, or installed and uninstalled for troubleshooting multiple systems is warranted.

    Any help is appreciated. Many thanks.

    woodcycl,
    really just aren't any shortcuts,
    no MAGICAL 'jelly-bean' [software] to solve hardware or software issues,
    just development of common-sense diagnostic skills,
    that's what this and a whole lot of other forums are for,

    you may peruse this and see if you can find something,

    everytime! before i go to do anything on a customer's pc,
    i kneel before it
    say my 3 prayers to the 'great computer god'
    then, do i really need to continue.............
