Toshiba is a Japanese corporation that mainly provides computers, laptops and peripherals to both consumer and business customers. Toshiba also provides diagnostic tools on the computers that they sell to help you figure out what is not working properly on your computer. This allows you to either fix it yourself or take it to a repair shop. All of these tools are free to use.
Satellite PC Diagnostic Tool
The Toshiba Satellite PC (personal computer) Diagnostic Tool helps you figure out what's wrong with the components that are not working on your satellite computer. Satellite computers come with wireless access and connectivity. This tool allows you to see what systems are not working properly, but it does not fix the problem. It will, however, offer you advice on how you can fix the problem. It may even direct you to other tools on your machine to help you with this. The tool runs a scan on your computer, and it will output a list of your installed components. Each component is given a pass or fail. Pass means that it's working properly; fail means that it is not. Besides diagnosing problems, you can also use this tool to figure out if a piece of hardware installed correctly. If it is not listed on the output list, then it probably was not installed right. The Toshiba Satellite PC Diagnostic Tool is located within the Toshiba folder on your machine. It is listed under the Utilities option.
The Toshiba Assist tool is for 64-bit computers, and it is compatible with Windows Vista 64 systems only. This program installs an icon on your desktop, which allows you to quickly pull up certain Setup, Help and Support features. The Toshiba Assist tools runs as util_toshiba_assist_27610A.exe. It allows you to efficiently install new programs and troubleshoot issues with your computer.
PC Health Monitor
The Toshiba PC Health Monitor provides you with alerts if something is about to go wrong with your machine. It monitors battery performance, cooling fan, system power, electrical charge, CPU (central processing unit) temperature, internal system temperature and hard drives. It will alert you if your machine is about to overheat. It outputs this information into a GUI (graphical user interface), which uses both text and images as opposed to code. It provides you with information on individual systems and whether or not they are functioning at their correct levels. The Toshiba PC Health Monitor also provides you with information on how to make your PC function better.
