    If the system came with software CDs put the one titled (paraphrased) "Hardware Diagnostics" in and boot the system using the diagnostics disk. Hold the "C" key down as the system starts to boot from the CDROM Reader.


    If the system didn't include software CDs, return it to where you got it and get your money back.
