    1 DiagTools Overview Introduction to Hardware Diagnostic Tools The purpose of hardware diagnostic software is to provide tools for checking serious hardware problems. By design, offline diagnostics execute simple tests of each hardware component in turn. Usually, such tests create assurance that hardware is not the source of system problems. This allows the user to focus energy on configuration problems, network problems, and software problems.
