Apple Personal Diagnostics
Comprehensive system information
Ease of use
DescriptionApple Computer now offers the most comprehensive way to diagnose and monitor the performance of your Macintosh, PowerBook, or Power Macintosh system.
Apple Personal Diagnostics software gives you a wealth of information about your computer's hardware and software at the click of a mouse. It's also the only diagnostic product available that's based on the same powerful testing programs Apple uses in manufacturing Macintosh computers. Regular use of the program can reduce system downtime, minimize support calls, and help you identify the source of problems.
Apple Personal Diagnostics combines hardware testing, system profiling, disk directory repair, and software checking in one easy-to-use package. You can run your system through an entire set of tests just by clicking on one button, and the results are presented in clearly understandable graphics and tables.
The program performs comprehensive diagnostic tests on your system's internal components, hard drives, floppy drives, and monitors. The hardware performance tests let you compare your system with benchmarks established by Apple for other Macintosh computers.
Personal Diagnostics also provides a variety of software information and checks. It lists all applications and system files (including extensions) installed on your computer, alerts you if duplicate System Folders exist, and diagnoses and repairs minor disk directory problems.
You can even set Personal Diagnostics to automatically test your Macintosh system when you aren't using it. It will alert you to any irregularities that may exist and suggest simple steps to correct them before they deteriorate into more serious problems.
