HowLongDoesThisHaveToBe Level 1 Level 1 (20 points)

I've got a macbook pro 17" early 2009 model w 2.93 processor (5,2) with mountain lion (osX 10.8.2) installed on it.


My chargers work but the light cuts in and out, regarless of which charger I use.  I want to run the Apple Hardware Test.


I've tried option-D on start, which I'm told won't work on this model.  I've also tried D on start.  In both cases it just boots to the login screen.


I tried downloading the Apple Hardware Test image for this model from Apple and after converting the image discover it has folders, but there are no files in those folders (yes I turned on hidden file viewing)


How does one run the hardware test on MBP 5,2 once mountain lion is installed.
