I’m a Dell onsite service…guy, and with every Motherboard shipped comes a CD with BIOS flash update and service tag utility and a rather thorough diagnostic utility.
I own a somewhat aging Gateway (1.4Ghz :rolleyes: ) that I want to last as long as possible before I go shopping for another. I’ve noticed that I can’t seem to find a similar kind of software CD for Gateway’s that I have a hundred or so of with Dell.
I’m pretty certain the Dell CD is not compatible with my GW and I’ve checked the GW support site, but haven’t found quite what I’m looking for there either.
That said, is there a “Awesomer” Diagnostic CD out there? Maybe something computer geeks/IT personnel live by?
In my search I come across this “Ultimate Boot Disk” thing alot and several others on Ebay claiming to be “the best”- but I don’t do software so much, I’d just like to know what’s wrong with my other computer without taking it anywhere to have it looked ator in case something goes wrong in the future.
Since I don’t do lot’s with software, this disk has to be easy enough for a knowledable hardware man to figure out. I put OS’ and drivers on computers all the time, but much else is a fresh enigma for me.
Any suggestions out there?/ Diagnostic software favorites? Thanks in advance
