I image laptops.  I use Spinrite to check out the drives, and Acronis to copy the image.  But, I need some diagnostic software to tell me if there are problems with the motherboards, NIC, etc.  Also, I have an 11 function multimeter.  How do I use it to diagnose NIC problems, WIFI problems?  Is there software to do this?

you can boot from a live Knoppix cd to check if the hardware is fine (this eliminates all soft problems) :

>>  an 11 function multimeter  <<   what functions?  or what multimeter?
imo - using amultimeter is only good to check the various voltages on the connectors  -you just need the pin layout
