How do I run diagnostics on my Lenovo?
Depending on if your Lenovo can boot into the OS or not will dictate which diagnostics to run.
If you cannot boot into Windows, you will need to download a bootable image that can be loaded onto a cd/dvd or USB drive.
If you can boot into Windows, you can run diagnostics from downloadable tools or install a program that runs from the OS.
Either way, the diagnostics tools will scan and inspect the components of the machine and provide a report with pass/fail status.
With the results of the tests known, you can proceed to fix/repair the issues. Check the warranty status of the machine if replacement parts are needed.
