Journal: What programs do you use for HW diags 1

Journal by BlackIcejane

I have a system at home that is causing me issues. I just reinstalled and put in all of the updated drivers but I am getting "video out of range" errors in some games, and sometimes the explorere.exe does not start when windows does it has also been known to restart for no reason.

Since I have reinstalled I am thinking it may be Hardware related.

Does any one know of good HDD, Ram diagnostic programs? I can't find anything good. Also if they could be run off a CD that would be best as the system does not have an internal FDD.

I would like to rule out any Hardware before I re-do the reinstall.
