DOS Diagnostic Tools

DOS Diagnostic Tools Section
The tools on this page are designed to be run in DOS Mode. These diagnostic utility
programs require booting to DOS with a floppy bootdisk or boot to Command Prompt.
These tools are not designed to be used in a Windows DOS Command Prompt box.
Visit our new Windows Diagnostic Tools webpage - coming soon!

A combination of these utilities on a few floppy diskettes should provide all the tools necessary for even an advanced technician. Most diagnostic utilities function best when the system is booted from floppy without memory managers loaded.
