Default How might I access msdiagnostic?

Hi again everyone!

I sold my laptop last year in the Philippines while I was there because there was an immense shortage and people were offering more than I paid for it even though it was over 2 years old.

The gentleman who purchased my laptop ran a diagnostic test somehow by going to start, run, then typed in something like:


I cannot remember what exactly he typed into the run but suddenly a diagnostic test appeared on the screen and 5 minutes later he paid me in cash.

I am curious, how did he do that and can I try that on my system too? And how might I run that program?

Thanks again everyone!

It's me, your NANY

Depends what you want a diagnostic of. You can type in "dxdiag" and that will bring up your DirectX diagnostic, which tells you basic system information. Hope that's what you're looking for .
