For Novices & Students
at novice home and student users etc, it incorporates a
feature-rich set of exhaustive diagnostic testing programs that can either
Self Boot or run in Windows. Novice not only rigorously
tests for & accurately diagnoses problems in computer
hardware, it's also instructional, helping the novice or student user understand what's
happening, with context sensitive help, coaching and repair
Pro is both a Self Boot Universal Testing program, meaning the software will run on
any IBM/AT or
compatible computer hardware, regardless of the operating system, and a Windows
diagnostic suite, for use exclusively in Windows for drivers
Professional Suite Novice is available as a download only.
Computer Testing Software -
Testing Software of choice for professional technicians world-wide
and if that isn't a Pedigree we
don't know what is. These pro's are not using products just because they are the best
value diagnostics on the market today (which they are), they are using them because they
think they are as good as, or better than, anything else currently available!
The comprehensive set of Industrial Strength diagnostic routines in
Novice are the same as those in Professional and are purpose designed for rigorous testing of all a computers
Pro Novice Comprises 2 Powerful Diagnostic Programs:
