I bought my laptop a few years ago.  I have a Mac OS X Install DVD (version 10.5.6).  I am currently running Mountain Lion.


I have tried to access the Apple Hardware Test software on the DVD, by pressing Option-D at startup.  This does not work.


I also tried just pressing Option to get to the boot selection menu, selecting the DVD and then searching for the AHT, but there is no selection.


How can I run the Apple Hardware Test on this machine?:
