I recall back in the Packard Bell days, there was a device I used to plug into the motherboard. It was an old IDe card that took and ran a complete diagnostic of the motherboard. It told you what capacitors were bad, if the cpu was over heating. if jumpers were wrong and so on. all with a diagnostic code.
Is there anything on the market like this for current computers?
I have a bunch of older xp machine that I need to refurbish and want to ensure they are up to par to ship out.
I have benchmarking software but i wanted something to actually test the hardware indept.
