Can anyone recommend hardware diagnostic tools that can be run from a bootable CD?
My situation is I have a machine that I built a couple of weeks ago. I loaded windows 7 RC (64 bit) on it, and it has been running like a champ. Until last night.
Now, I get the blue screen of death soon after reboot. Every time. I get it when I run in safe mode. I get it when I try to repair the windows installation. I get it when I try to wipe the drive and re-install windows 7 using the same cd.
So I'm thinking I have a hardware problem (I'm almost positive). I already swapped out the hard drive for another, and that didn't do the trick.
Before I start swapping out everything else, I thought a hardware diagnostics tool might be a good place to start. And one that run from a bootable cd would be excellent.
