I am a PC repair individual in a small town. I have my MCSE and have a pretty good if not a very good handle on viruses (trojans, etc.), software issues, etc. but feel I am a little weak on the hardware side.
I work on desktops and laptops with XP, Vista and W 7 as the operating systems.
I am looking for professional suggestions for Hardware Diagnostics Software. I don't need the soft ware to tell me whether the problem is a capacitor (i.e. that intensive and low level) but to tell me whether the problem is say the PSU, the MOBO, the HDD, etc.
Below is a link to software made by PC Diagnostics as an example:
Is the PC Diagnostics software any good? If you are a repair person what is your preference in software?
Any other suggestions, keeping in mind that the software must be able to be be run in a relatively short period of time (people don't want to pay for $300 for a fix when they can get a new PC for $550) are appreciated.
