-WARNING- This manual is intended to test the IBM Aptiva 2170/2171/2172 machine type only.
Testing devices which are not included with the original product package, including other IBM products, prototype cards, or modifying hardware settings may give false errors and invalid system responses.
The diagnostics not specifically made for this model may also report incorrect errors and information.
The diagnostics program comes on a diskette along with this book.
This version of PC-Doctor diagnostics program, developed by Watergate for IBM, is the primary method of testing the computer.
You can use it to test the IBM components of the system and some external devices.
The amount of time required to test components depends on the number of components installed and selected.
The more devices you have attached to your system and selected in PC-Doctor, the longer the testing will take.
NOTE: The diagnostics programs for Aptiva 2170/2171/2172/2174 are the same.
