Which tools can I use to diagnose potential hardware problems?

1) Check for loose connections: Make sure all cables and drives are securely connected.

2) Check for overheating: Use a thermometer to make sure the components are not over-heating.

3) Check for driver updates: Use Windows Update or the manufacturer’s website to check for the latest drivers to eliminate this as the cause.

4) Check for software issues: If the problem persists, run diagnostics tools like Diagnose Now, System Mechanic, or PC Doctor to identify any software faults that might be causing the issue.

5) Test your RAM: Use Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool (or Memtest86) to check the integrity of your RAM and rule out any faults.

6) Test your hard drive: Run a Surface Scan (or other) tool to make sure there are no physical issues with the drive itself.

7) Test your graphics card: Use one of the numerous graphics card benchmarking tools to ensure your graphics card is running normally.
