Need recommends/advice for diagnostics software
I'm not even sure whether it's a hardware problem, a software problem, or both, so I'm not sure if this is the best forum to ask this in...
My 3D graphics functionality is gone. (I have the latest driver.)
System Restore can't restore my system to an earlier restore point.
Turns out a magnet got stuck to the outside of my computer box. So I don't know what other problems there may be in addition to the ones above.
I have Windows XP Media Center (or Pro - in some places, it says one thing, in other places, the other), SP3.
What diagnostics can/should I run to find out what-all's wrong? Also, if possible, tell me about the ones I don't have to buy. If there is a product out there that I'd have to buy but that would be best, I guess I ought to hear about it.
I mean, I could try just replacing my graphics card, but NVIDIA doesn't seem to sell the one I have and I wouldn't know which others would fit... and if other things are wrong, it would probably be better to find out now ...
