System Diagnostics

Q: System Diagnostics

Hello, I have an Envy 15t laptop, and the original battery seems to not be functioning properly (the initial charge is quite low and the laptop does not last a long time). I bought a new battery to remedy this issue, and I was hoping to do a calibration test. While doing this, I ran into a strange problem. For some reason, when I try to access the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (by pressing ESC on bootup, followed by F2), it looks different now than it did before (I don't think it's because of the new battery before though, since I still had the old menu even with the new battery at some point). The old menu used to be more of a GUI style, something like Figure 9 in the following link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259 Now though, under HP PC Hardware Diagnostics, it doesn't look like a GUI (it's more text based), and I only have the following options: Memory Test, Hard Drive Check, Language, Exit. I no longer see a "Components" option, and I certainly cannot access the Battery option from within Components (since the Components option is missing). Any ideas about why this is the case? Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,               I have tried to run Lenovo's System Diagnostics and all I see is a message in red telling me that it is running and to wait. Well I waited for an hour and I suspect it was not running at all.I never had to wait this long. Why is this and it is not acceptable?

Hi rjordan393 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Either that the LSC is not ok or it has encountered issue during the test that was not able to verify. 
Try to uninstall it from programs and features under control panel and download a fresh updated copy from the support site and see if that would work. 
 
Likewise for differential comparison you can also use similar test software such as this and this . 
Update us how things go.

Is there a diagnostic program that can tell me what is going on inside my notebook? I am used to the one that came with my MSI machine that tells you CPU/GPU temp, fan revs etc. I suspect fan in this notebook is not working or is it not fitted with a fan? Also is anyone aware if win10 update can be turned off. I have totally had it well and truly that every update totally trashes the machine each and every time the download installs. I am sick of losing my 3rd party software and my data. This laptop will go into orbit on the end of my boot if it doesn't stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have no control over when it decides to update and I can be right in the middle of things and down it goes never to restart again until factory reset.

I bought this because MSI like to play funny buggers with that machine. It has now gone back for 3 warranty repairs and now is back there again as they damaged it last time they had it and who knows when I'll see that machine again!

Hello. I would like to make an inquiry concerning system diagnostics for my computer system. I run a Windows 10 Home (Ver. 1703, OS Build 15063.483) on a ThinkPad T450s (under a 4-year warranty that'll expire on July 20 2019). I have recently run a System Diagnostics for my system and found issues regarding two storage tests (the tests being for Targeted Read Test & SMART Short Shelf Test for Storage 'device' WDC WD10JPVX-08JC3T5 - 931.51 GBs; the report is attached for reference). I was wondering if I should be concerned over those failed tests. I would like to know as the end results report state that my computer is 100% functional, even though it doesn't display the one storage 'device' with the two failed tests. Any help/suggestion/advice on the case would be appreciated!

So last night I was using my laptop to watch a movie from my hot tub. I guess I managed to get a few drops of water on the keyboard when I went to change the volume because afterwords some of the keyboard buttons didn't work. I left it upside down with a paper towl on the keyboard and when I woke up the keyboard worked fine, but the computer asked if i wanted to do a diagnostic. I figured why not and ran it. It said yes. After the diagnostic though the computer turned off and it won't turn back on. I push the power button and all it did was flash 5 times and nothing happened. Any ideas.

Check in event viewer by typing eventvwr in search. Look in windows logs, application tab.

You are looking for critical errors (they have red in the left column) that have app hang, app crash, or anything relating to the problem.

When you find them pplease note the event ID and source code and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of these

Often the browser is unresponsive for 20 seconds or more. I am running System Diagnostics from the startup menu. The SMART Check, Short DST and long DST all passed but the Startup Test failed.

My hard drive failed and I've taken it out to prevent further damage to the data. I want to keep using my computer with a Linux live USB while I wait for a new drive. When I turn on the laptop, I can press escape to bring up the startup menu and F9 is listed as boot device options and F10 is listed as BIOS. If I choose any option, no matter which one, the computer opens System Diagnostics. If i press F9 or F10 during boot, I see the text pop up acknowledging the action, but still get System Diagnostics. I bought this computer new from Amazon, it has never been configured by any kind of IT department, it is simply locking me out of the BIOS and boot order for unknown reasons. I do not have anything the computer came with, so I'd need a link to an ISO if your suggestion involves a disk. Ideally, there is some inane secret combination of button pushing and holding that will either allow me to change the boot order or boot directly from USB. Thanks in advance for your help.

The Reliability and Performance Monitor found in Vista keeps a heap of data sets for response times, processes, configuration data, diagnostics, debug logs, registry keys and performance counters. This tool will help you diagnose windows errors, slow performance or anything else you would like it to help you track down.

1. Open the Start-Menu and search for Performance Monitor.
2. In the performance monitor there is a folder called "Data Collector Sets" found in the left open it and click "System"
3. Here you will find some default diagnostic tools to run on your vista machine, just right-click the name and click start, scroll down to the Reports folder to view your results.

You can also add your own customised monitors under the Data Collector sets folder for a more complete view of the systems performance handling, Just remember too many sets might slow your system down and vista allready runs a Reliability Monitor every hour.

This tool will point anyone in the right direction to solve issues they are having with vista or the hardware, Include the report in a support request and it can help diagnose the problem very quickly. Its proberly the most usefull feature found in vista.

Hello, I'm the process of trying to de-brick this EliteBook 8640p that was working just yesterday, but I decided it was time for a re-format.  I went into the BIOS settings and noticed an option called 'Safe Erase'... and I decided to perform it. After the process was complete, understandably there was no OS found. The next step (I thought) was to add bootable media (DVD-ROM or Flash Drive, I tried both) to install a new OS. After tweaking the 'Legacy Boot' settings by putting USB Flash Drive at the top, I rebooted -- and it didn't load from the removable media. I tried checking the BIOS settings again, but every time I press ESC, F9, etc. during the POST, it redirects me to 'system diagnostics', which has been extremely unhelpful since all it offers me is a few diagnostic scans (they all pass, by the way). I'm not ever able to get back to the BIOS settings. This would be day 2 of my adventure, yesterday I tried updating/reinstalling the BIOS using a Flash Drive, but the utilities provided by HP all crashed when they were about to create the BIOS update drive. I tried moving basically every .bin file I could find (there isn't a single Phoneix Bios file that I could find) onto a freshly-formatted (FAT32, 4MB block size, 2 GB capacity) Flash Drive. Booting normally with the flash drive in keeps bringing me back to the 'system diagnostics' screen, over and over again. Something quite odd happens when I try initiating the BIOS recovery routine with Win + B -- when ...

My puter has been giving me error messages that I didn't have enough RAM to open some pages on the internet, so I did what any self respecting gameaholic would do, I went and bought more. I installed 768 SDRAM. And low and behold, I now have lots and lots of memory and no longer get those pesky little messages. However, when I check settings to see the performance of my new memory, it says that I only have 62% of the RAM available. This is with no windows open, I'm not on the internet, nothing. How could this be?..Is there a diagnostics program I can run that will tell me what hog is in my RAM? (no pun intended)...my system is a Windows 98 with a Pentium II. I read extensively on my mb to get the correct memory, so I don't think that is the problem...what the heck could it be?

JA8231 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Wish I had good news for you, but I don't ... The UEFI diagnostics you refer to are linked to the Win8.1 page for your PC, but NOT to the Win10 page: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5229456&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4158 This could be a simple oversight by HP, in which you could then download and install the diagnostics from the Win8.1 page.  Or, it could more likely be that those do not work in Win10 -- in which you're then out of luck. My suggestion is to try downloading and install them anyway, they might just work.Good Luck

At Build this year, we gave a sneak preview of a set of new APIs designed to provide diagnostic information about running apps. You can see the videos here and here ? but note that these were based on a pre-release implementation. So, while the Build videos are still correct on broad functionality, the final API names are almost all slightly different. Plus, we added a couple of extra features after Build.

The final versions for the upcoming release are available in the Insider builds from Build 16226, along with the corresponding SDK.

At a high level, these APIs allow an app to:
Enumerate a list of running apps, including UWP apps, Win32 apps, system services and so on.
For each app, get process-specific metrics on:
Memory usage (private commit and working set).
CPU usage.
Disk reads and writes.

For each UWP app, get additional metrics on:
Memory usage (including shared commit) equivalent to the Windows.System.MemoryManager report previously available to an app for its own usage.
State info: running, suspending, suspended, not running.
Energy quota info: under or over.
Enumerate a list of any background tasks that are active for the app, including name, trigger type and entry point.
Enumerate all the processes for the app (using an enhancement to the existing Windows.System.Diagnostics.ProcessDiagnosticInfo class that was previously restricted to an app for its own usage).
The API has a simple hierarchical structure:
The AppDiagnosticInfo type represents a single ... Read more

I have being trying to diagnose a fault with a laptop, some over heating problem. I have used a diagnostics card it keeping spitting out the error code 'AE' which means clear boot flag. I'm guessing the bios is performing its own checks and intefering which the card checks.

What can i do rectify this. Manuals not very good and i been trying to google it but to no avail..

Hardware= diagnostic card plugs into the parallel port of the laptop powered by the usb port and has a two digit display, Dell c640 laptop
If any one can help or set me straight i be grateful.
 

A:Diagnostics card

Never had a good experience with diagnostics cards. All the ones I've seen are pretty useless and simply don't work well, if at all. Most moderen PCs has diag cards built in on whether it's beep codes or the diag LCDs on the back of most modern Dells. If the PC is having an over heating issue a diag card isn't gonna help anyway.

To fix a laptop that is over heating you should open the laptop up and blow the dust out of the laptop paying special attention to the heat sinks and fans. While it is open make sure the fans are spinning and that the heatsinks are in place and securly attached.

What are the symptoms the laptop is having any? Maybe it's not just overheating?

What is the difference(s) between the 40 Minute "Full Test" Diagnostics run online on the Dell website at http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/servicetag/CQ37W52/diagnose?s=BSD and the Diagnostics run via Dell Support Assist software (10 Minute "Default" Scan & 15 Minute "Stress Scan" = Total of 25 Minutes)?
Since the Dell Support Assist Diagnostics are only 25 Minutes total, that is 15 Minutes less time (37.5% less time) than the 40 Minutes online Diagnostics.

Are there diagnostics that can determine if the Bluetooth Radio hardware is working properly?

I cannot get a new Microsoft Sculpt Bluetooth (dongle-less) Mouse to be recognized after putting it in discovery mode.

My phone can see the mouse, so I'm pretty sure the mouse is not broken.

The computer cannot see the phone, so I'm pretty sure that something is hosed with the computer hardware or the O/S, but all the drivers seem to be in order.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.
ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe m/b.
Qualcomm Atheros Communications Port_#0004.Hub_#0003

The ASUS m/b has built-in Bluetooth, and the ASUS Bluetooth drivers are up-to-date and the Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator is up-to-date, and both are enabled and "working properly", and the Bluetooth icon is in my system tray.

I can see the Bluetooth Radio blinking on the back of the m/b.

Here are the current settings.

[x] Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer
[x] Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer
[x] Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect
[x] Show Bluetooth icon in the notification area

[ ] Turn off the Bluetooth Adapter


Thanks

I need some help:
I accidentally shut down the internet during a "dell diagnostics test" which closed everything down in the middle of running the test.  It was running slow so I had to restart.  Just wondering if that hurt anything on the computer?  Not sure how bad it is for restarting in the middle of a diagnostics.
New to PC's, so any reassurance or help would be great.

Other than scannow /f is there anything else built into Windows that will run a system check/diagnostics ? I suspect I have created a system that may have some wires crossed as far as performance goes ?

Or..will running a repair install correct/fix any issues in my current installation...and...assuming I do it properly per the tutorial...is there any danger of loosing documents and/or files after the repair isntall ?

Wires crossed? SFC just checks your system files against a copy in stores and compares them.

A repair install will only help if there are damaged files which SFC should pick up.

There is always some danger of losing files/documents so it is always a good idea to backup, have a restore point, and an OS dvd.

I have a Pavilion 17-f010us running Windows 10. I want to run a hardware diagnostic on it, but can't seem to figure out how. On older models running Windows 7 and below, I used to be prompted to hit a specail key during power-up (ESC or F10, etc.) which would take me to a boot menu where I could enter the BIOS or run a diag utility. Can anyone tell me how I'd do it on this one? Thank you in advance.

Hi, Shutdown the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu.  From here, you should be able to select the Diagnostic Menu option ( f2 ). Regards, DP-K

Hi

Is there a way to check the health of one's monitor?

When I boot up, the Windows logon screen is very wavy. It is only then that it is wavy. The picture stabilizes immediately after and stays stable. I am using an IBM monitor that is about eight years old. I am thinking that because of its age, this may be a concern.

I would appreciate your opinion.

Thank you.

Hello .... this is my first posting after finding this great website resourse and a search of the archive still leaves me uncertain about the compatibility of manufacturer supplied diagnostic programs for external USB hard drives.

Do these diagnostics (like SeaTools) fully work on external USB hard drives?

I've often used these manufacturer supplied diagnostics on my internal IDE or SATA HDs with no problems in getting the diagnostic program to recognize and perform all the various tests.

However, for my external HDs, only the Generic tests are available to me with SeaTools for Windows (i.e. SMART test or Info Report are shown to be not supported on my Seagate and Maxtor external drives). And booting Seetools from a FreeDOS bootable CD will not even recognize these USB drives at all.

Recently, I purchased and placed two new 500GB HDs into external USB enclosures:

1. A Maxtor Basics SATA II/300 that generates very loud annoying clicks while seeking and;

2. A Seagate ST350064 Ultra/100 which has a constant high pitched whine (that drives me nuts).

I've tried different enclosures and also no enclosures with no reduction with regards to the noises.

The SeaTools Windows Version for Windows XP Pro SP2 does see them and can perform the Generic Tests that report no problems.

Am I correct in assuming that I'll first need to remove them from the USB enclosures and connect them on the IDE and SATA connectors on my desktop unit before I can ... Read more

Although I don't like those sounds
I would suggest that you coninue to make backups to external Media
If the USB Drive is your backup Media, then at least you have the backup in two areas

I should like to know how many files/folders should appear in the zipped folder that needs be sent to you.
I followed the instructions and expected to see one for every box below "grab all". There are fewer and the progress bar looks to have completed its traverse, but Task Manager shows SFDignostic running and ther is a Success icon there too.

Is SF Diagnostics working OK, has finished its work?

A:Question on SF Diagnostics

It sounds like it has. The number of files depends on how many .dmp files there are, but usually its a minimum of 9 files. This is an alternative to that tool. Try it instead.
