Default Program to scan for hardware errors?

hey there. I have a couple older computers that are having some problems. Both seem to hang up sometimes and just run sluggish. Ive done countless adware/spyware/virus scans and they are all clean. Ive also ran hijack this and posted logs on forums and everything looks fine. Now, my question is, since im assuming its hardware thats starting to fail in these comps, is there a program that I can run that scans all hardware for any problems? A free program would be best. If not, anything would help. Thanks!

There's memtest for RAM, several utilities for hard drives, and if you wanna check your PSU, you should probably buy one of those little tester thingies.
