    Hewlett-Packard Vision Field Diagnostics let you view information about the hardware configuration and perform hardware troubleshooting for HP Desktop and Workstation systems. These tools let you isolate potential issues and determine if problems relate to the operating system or the hardware. These diagnostics run outside the operating system by DVD, CD, or USB flash drive, making them easy to access and use.
