Overview of DiagTools
Overview of DiagTools
The Vectra and Kayak hardware diagnostics utility has four parts:
❒ Hardware Detection, which automatically detects the complete
hardware configuration of a Vectra PC or Kayak PC Workstation.
Hardware detection is described in chapter 2.
❒ The Basic Tests, which determine the correct functioning of the PC
as a whole. The basic test phase is described in chapter 3.
❒ The Advanced Tests. These provide complete, in-depth testing and
diagnosis of the PC’s individual components. The advanced test
phase is described in chapter 4.

1 Starting DiagTools
Installing and Setting Up DiagTools
Installing and Setting Up DiagTools
Net Vectra PC Users
If you are a Net Vectra PC user, the Hardware Diagnostics should
already be installed on your PC and be ready to use. To learn how to
run DiagTools on a Net Vectra PC, refer to "Starting DiagTools from the
Hard Disk Drive", on page 9.
Vectra PC & Kayak PC Workstation Users and Network
Administrators
For Vectra PC and Kayak PC Workstation users, as well as network
administrators, you must do the following before you can use
DiagTools:
1 Install the latest version of DiagTools on your PC.
2 Set up DiagTools so that it is ready for use. This means either
creating the diskette(s), or updating the Hardware Diagnostics files
on your Net Vectra PC.
There are two ways to run DiagTools:
NOTE
•
From diskettes. The PC boots (or starts) from the first diskette. This
is appropriate for all PCs that have a floppy disk drive. This is the
most common way of using DiagTools.
•
From the hard disk drive. In this case, you select the Hardware
Diagnostics option during startup. The Hardware Diagnostics utility
is installed on the hard disk drive. This is only appropriate for Net
Vectra PCs. Net Vectra PCs do not usually have a floppy disk drive.
DiagTools must not be run directly from your operating system.
DiagTools will only function under the DOS operating system and once
the correct drivers have been loaded.

Before Running DiagTools
Before Running DiagTools
Before you run the Hardware Diagnostics, ensure that the following are
correctly configured in the computer’s BIOS Setup program:
❒ No operating system is specified, which means that:
•
if the Main menu has an item Running Windows 95 or Plug and
Play OS, set it to No
• if the Main menu has an item to select the operating system, set
it to Other.
❒ All Hardware Protection items in the Security menu are set to
Enabled or Unlocked.
❒ The option to start from the floppy disk is enabled.
More Information About The PC’s Setup Program
Setup is an integrated (ROM-based) program that displays the PC’s
configuration and allows you to change the configuration parameters.
Setup changes system behavior by modifying the power-on
initialization parameters. Setting incorrect values may cause the PC to
fail at start-up. If this occurs, press F9 in the Setup program. This will
load the Setup default values and allow the PC to recover.
To enter the PC’s Setup program, restart the PC and press F2 when the
Vectra Logo or Kayak logo screen (or the Summary screen) appears.
NOTE FOR
NET VECTRA PCS
To run DiagTools from the hard disk drive, the PC must have
the correct boot (start) configuration. All Net Vectra PCs are
provided with a ready-to-use Hardware Diagnostics dual boot
configuration. For more information, refer to "Starting
DiagTools from the Hard Disk Drive", on page 9.

Kayak Hardware Diagnostics.
guard.bk : guard2.fb4 Page 12 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:06 PM
2 Hardware Detection
Overview of Hardware Detection
Overview of Hardware Detection
Hardware detection determines which tests are appropriate for your
PC. For example, if your PC has a IDE or SCSI hard disk drive, the boot
sector of the hard disk drive will be checked as part of the basic system
test.
In the advanced tests, some functions will be disabled if they are not
appropriate for your PC. For example, if you do not have a SCSI
controller, the SCSI menu in the advanced tests will be disabled.
During Hardware Detection
The following screen appears during hardware detection:
NOTE
Hardware detection may be so fast that this screen simply flickers on
and off, without giving you time to read it. This is normal. The time
required for hardware detection varies greatly between the different
systems and different configurations.

2 Hardware Detection
If a PC Component is Not Detected
If a PC Component is Not Detected
If a component or device in your PC (such as a hard disk drive) is not
detected, do the following:
1 Check the list of components that DiagTools should detect (this is on
page 14).
If the non-detected component is not in this list, then there is no
error and the situation is normal.
If the non-detected component is in this list, continue to the next
step.
2 Check that the PC is correctly configured in the PC’s Setup program.
(Refer to page 7 for more information about the PC’s Setup
program.)
3 Refer to the User’s Guide that came with the PC for information
about troubleshooting the PC.
4 Run the DiagTools and proceed to the basic system test.
NOTE
DiagTools does not test components that have not been detected.
However, we recommend that you continue with the basic system test
to verify that the underlying components are functioning correctly.
For example: a PC has a PCI SCSI controller card installed and a
SCSI hard disk connected to this controller. Even if the SCSI hard
disk drive is not detected, running the basic system test will ensure
the correct functioning of the PCI system that supports the SCSI
controller.
5 If the problem persists, contact your local or HP-dedicated Support
Agent for assistance.

Overview of the Basic System Test
Overview of the Basic System Test
The basic system test is performed after hardware detection. The
purpose of the basic system tests is to verify the correct operation of
the PC’s hardware. For each detected hardware component, the test
will confirm that:
•
•
•
The component is powered-on
The component has been initialized for use
The component is operating correctly under MS-DOS.
Unlike the advanced system tests, the basic system test is done
automatically and no user input or guidance is needed. This test phase
is suitable for all types of users, including novice and non-technical
users.
Most of the PC’s components are tested during the basic system test.
To test all of the PC’s components, use the advanced systems tests.
How to Run the Basic System Test
The basic system test is performed after the hardware detection phase.
To do the basic system test, follow these steps:
1 Start DiagTools. To learn how to do this, refer to chapter 1, Starting
DiagTools.
2 Follow the instructions on the screen to proceed with hardware
detection. Hardware detection is described in chapter 2.
3 You will then be invited to proceed with the basic system test. Press
and follow the instructions on your screen.
NOTE
The screen image may become corrupted during the basic system test.
This is normal. Do not restart your system. The image will be restored
after the test is complete.
