Re: check

Some makers have software to check some devices.
For example, Dell used to come with diagnostics in a special partition. And for a hard disk, most makers have a test program to dowload.

- memtest86 is good in testing RAM
- dxdiag helps testing video and audio hardware and software

On top of what Kees wrote.

I find FURMARK to push a machine hard enough to find some broken machines. If FURMARK crashes a PC then it's in need of work.

Remember no software today is 100% as to saying the PC is without trouble as gamers still are you best testers.
