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:

msdiagnostic

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. He paid me the same amount I paid for the laptop 2 years ago even though the laptop was thrashed and had a major scratch on the screen and lots of dings on the outside of the case.

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

Thanks again everyone!

I don't know about the diagnostic, but your signature can't be more than five lines. Your sig is way to big.
