Um, what? You need to be more specific on what you want. Please define 'burn-in' to you... There's many things that can be considered for burn-in.

Contrary to popular belief, us techies aren't mind readers nor robots that are able to ascertain what you are talking about when we ourselves have no idea what you are talking about.

Now, what kind of burn-in are you referring to? Burn-in on LCD screens? On thermal paste? On what? We can't help you without more info.

When I "Burn In" a computer, it normally means that I am running the computer as the maxium speed for a period of time. Reason why I do this is to make sure that the computer hardware will not fall over shortly after i give it back to my customer.

Program that i use is SiS Sandra. SiSoftware Zone
Personally i like the older version more than the newer version. However the older version does not run on Vista.

That's generally referred to as stress testing, and only really needed if you have overclocked the computer. Most people use Prime95 to stress test. There's also OCCT (Overclock Check Tool), and Orthos. Prime95 is the most popular.

I would. An overnight or 24 hours of the computer running at the maxium speed. If she does not fall over, then she should be all right.
