Installation of the PC Doctor 6 diagnostic software is a painless process that is as simple as inserting the software disk into an optical drive and following the on-screen prompts to complete the installation.
Once the autorun has completed and the GUI is up, you have several different options. You can do a complete install , a quick install, run from CD( with the USB device inserted), view the quick start guide, or use the restore utility. I will use the Install option to install the whole suite of software. Choose the location for the installation to continue the install. Once the install is complete the choice can be made to run the software or uncheck the option and then finish the process.
Starting the PC Doctor diagnostic software brings you to an easy to use main page. This page includes six main options and an amazing array of sub menus to complete the diagnostics testing.
System Script: The first option allows the user or technician the ability to run preset testing scripts to test the motherboard, CPU, memory, and system devices.
Burn in Script: This option allows the user to simultaneously test a variety of hardware devices, not just one or two. Once into this option there is a script window so you can choose the devices and tests that will be run to stress the system components.
System Information: This tab gives detailed information about the entire system. Driver version, firmware revision, and more are some of the items listed. If you want to know about any of the system hardware you can find it here.
Storage Script: This section lets you run storage specific testing to diagnose drive related problems. Choose the specific testing you want to run and the PC Doctor software takes over and gives a detailed report on the specified tests.
Script Editor: Under this tab you can make any number of custom testing scripts. If you want to test only one or two things thats great, but if you want to run a detailed test and bypass some of the items you can do that as well. Scripts can be made and saved so that they are available the next time you need them.
Help: The final tab in the PC Doctor Service Center 6 software is the Help Menu. If you find yourself in need of more direction this would be the first place to look.
