My digital toolbox 7

Every computer technician carries a few USB flash drives with software, scripts, and other files that we use for diagnostics. I have several in my briefcase and even more in my workshop. But their contents are constantly changing. So here is another installment of My Digital Toolbox.

My digital toolbox 7


Main screen inside of HWiNFO

When it comes to monitoring hardware while running diagnostics or stress tests, nothing comes close to HWiNFO. This versatile tool allows you to know the status of any component inside your computer. The convenience of a portable version that can be run directly from a USB drive adds to its appeal, making it a must-have for your digital toolbox.



Main screen inside of Prime95

Prime95, originally developed to search for Mersenne prime numbers, has been adopted for stress testing CPUs (Central Processing Unit). It uses the CPU's integer and floating-point instructions to feed a consistent workload, testing the CPU's stability. The fact that it's a stand-alone program that doesn't require installation adds to its appeal. Simply download, unzip, and run. It's a great companion to HWiNFO (see above), making it a valuable addition to your digital toolbox.


Display Driver Uninstaller

When it comes to graphic cards, having the correct version of drivers is essential, and maintaining them can be a nightmare. Uninstalling the separate components can be frustrating. Luckily, there is the Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU). With this program, you can uninstall all of the components that get installed when you use the manufacturer's installation software package. It is recommended that you run DDU in safe mode and create a Restore Point before running DDU.
