Best computer hardware diagnostic testing tools
Posted on 2014-12-09
I just opened up a computer repair shop and have hired two additional techs and would like to purchase some testing tools and would like to know which ones are the best out there. I have all the software ones that I use for when computers do boot, but am looking more so for when a computer does not boot at all. For the past six years when I get a computer that is having a hardware issue I have just swamped out components until I found the bad one. This is time consuming and you can swap out every component except the motherboard and CPU. I would like a piece of equipment that will test all the hardware when a computer will not boot and tell me which piece of equipment is bad (if something like that exists). I would also like to know what everyone recommends for software and hardware tools for running diagnostics as I would be willing to change what I use now if something better is out there. So basically I would like as much input that you have to help my techs make the most accurate and timely diagnostics. Thanks!
