INTRODUCTION

486TEST (TM) is a diagnostic program designed to test motherboards and
system components. Computational loads on the processor, and numeric
processor (if present) exceed by several orders of magnitude the use a
computer would receive in a commercial environment in a 24 hour period.

This program tests all of the system's resources including the BIOS,
CPU, NDP, CACHE, RAM, EXTENDED MEMORY and DISPLAY MEMORY. Once started
486TEST (TM) will run for days. A status line at the bottom of the
screen keeps you updated as to the progress of the test.


DISCLAIMER

THIS PROGRAM TESTS A COMPUTER USING TESTS DESIGNED TO DETECT DEFECTIVE,
UNRELIABLE, OR IMPROPERLY RATED COMPONENTS. THIS PROGRAM WILL CAUSE
YOUR SYSTEM TO RUN AT TEMPERATURES FAR IN EXCESS OF NORMAL OPERATING
TEMPERATURES FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. THIS WILL SUBJECT YOUR
COMPUTER TO HIGHER THAN NORMAL USE AND STRESS DURING THE TEST PERIOD.

SYSTEMS WHICH USE LOW QUALITY COMPONENTS CAN BE PERMANENTLY DAMAGED BY
THIS PROGRAM! THE AUTHOR, DISTRIBUTOR AND LICENSEES OF THIS PROGRAM
CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE, REAL OR OTHERWISE CAUSED BY
THIS PROGRAM.

ANY USE OF THIS PROGRAM SIGNIFIES THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THIS WARNING AND
WISH TO SUBJECT YOUR SYSTEM TO THESE TYPES OF TESTS AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE
FACT THAT YOUR COMPUTER MAY NOT OPERATE AFTER BEING TESTED.


RUNNING 486TEST (TM)

1) BEFORE running the program, please disable any memory managers you
may be loading in your CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

2) Copy 486TEST.EXE to the directory where you want to install the
software. You should not run this program from the distribution
diskette. It is advisable to copy and run this program from your
hard disk drive.

3) DO NOT turn off your monitor during this test. You can turn the
brightness down to prevent burn-in of the monitor screen if you
desire but DO NOT turn off the monitor.

4) Do not rename the program file.


WHAT 486TEST (TM) IS ALL ABOUT

This program is designed to put your system through an electronic
torture test. It works on the principle that most problems appear due
to either poor engineering, defects during assembly or the use of
improperly rated components.

486TEST's intensive testing will bring the system's components to
extremely high operating temperature and subject them to extremely high
operational stresses. Design or component flaws will show up by hanging
the system or causing the system to perform warm or cold boots.

The best time to use this program is when you receive your brand new
computer. While you won't be able to use your new computer for a while
it is better to locate any problems as soon as possible. If your system
passes the test, it should keep running.

If you have unloaded all memory managers and you find that your system
hangs or reboots, then something is wrong with your computer. This
program is used by a computer manufacturer to test their computers in a
110 degree burn-in room for 48 hours. Any computer with high quality,
properly rated components can run this test for weeks without crashing.

After the initial test and before the warranty expires run this test
three times, just to make sure you can detect any problems and get them
fixed before the warranty expires.


NEW FEATURES IN 486TEST (TM)

1) A proprietary adaptive algorithm is now in use. This insures that
additional loads are placed on the processor/co-processor when a
high power processor is found.

3) Video RAM testing cycles have been increased to place a heavier load
on the video display card during the test period.

4) Portions of the program have been ported to machine language
allowing more tests to be run in a given period of time.

5) The documentation has been changed to reflect program updates.


WARNING

Do NOT touch any of the components during testing. You can easily get
burned as the components get VERY hot! The system case SHOULD be closed
to insure that normal ventilation procedures are in use.
