PC-Doctor releases Service Center

New Professional Computer Troubleshooting Kit Includes Advanced Test Devices,
Support for Newly Introduced Hardware Components, and Faster Diagnostics

RENO, Nev. (Feb. 24, 2009) – Global system health and computer diagnostics leader PC-Doctor Inc. today introduced its PC-Doctor Service Center 7 computer repair kit, a significant advancement of the industry's top PC troubleshooting software used by service organizations, independent PC repair professionals, small manufacturers and others.

The latest kit delivers new and faster diagnostics, more advanced test scripting, a significantly improved POST card for systems that won't boot, a drive-erase tool, and the ability to take detailed snapshots of the system under test to clearly show all changes made. Additionally, companies using Service Center 7 can present a professional image to their customers by providing customized test reports that include the company's logo, contact information, and technician name.

"Technicians who choose PC-Doctor Service Center 7 are able to take advantage of the same up-to-date professional diagnostics that four of the world's top five manufacturers pre-install on their PCs to reduce warranty and service delivery costs," said Doug van Aman, the company's chief marketing officer. "We routinely develop tests for new hardware well before those technologies are released to the general public, and are able to roll those advances into PC-Doctor Service Center, while continuing to support legacy systems."

Service Center 7 comes complete with more than 300 diagnostics, including high-level diagnostics for testing hardware and advanced drivers within the Windows operating system, and bootable diagnostics for low-level, direct testing of hardware, and for use when Windows will not boot. The new Windows tests support the latest components introduced by the world's leading manufacturers, including newly introduced video cards, Bluetooth network devices, CPUs and Blu-ray optical drives. Additionally, the bootable diagnostics include new, faster protected-mode memory tests that are based on PC-Doctor patents and capable of testing up to 64 gigabytes of memory.

Also included is a newly designed POST card for troubleshooting systems that cannot boot. Designed to make troubleshooting easier, the POST card has a new daughterboard on a flexible connector, making it easier to read error codes, bus speeds and system voltages on a remote display. Other highlights of the new PC-Doctor Service Center 7 include:

  • Customizable reports: The computer repair tech has unprecedented control over both the content and the appearance of the reports generated by Service Center 7. These reports can be branded to include the company name, technician name, and the company logo, and can include system information, test information, and comparisons between system snapshots, showing hardware and driver changes that occurred during repair.
  • System snapshots: Techs can take a snapshot of the system before they start repair, run diagnostics and replace hardware or make driver changes, then take another snapshot. All differences in the two sets of system information will be listed, including detailed hardware and driver information. The tech can include this information in the report given to the customer, allowing the customer to clearly see exactly what was done on their system. This establishes credibility and boosts customer confidence.
  • Drive-erase capability: Our new tool wipes a hard drive to U.S. Defense Department specifications.
  • SMART attributes log view: Shows all of the details from the drive SMART function.
  • Support for CD/DVD checksum test: New test media supports this test while maintaining compatibility with older-version media.
  • Test automation: Five predefined, broad-coverage test scripts are available directly from the home screen, as are up to five user-defined scripts.
  • Redesigned user interface: The completely redesigned user interface provides much faster, cleaner access to all Service Center 7 features.
  • Customizable links: A nearly unlimited number of links to user-defined test scripts, favorite Web addresses, and local files can be added to Service Center 7 for quick access when running on multiple systems. The top five links are also available directly from the home screen.
  • Periodic updates: Customers may subscribe to receive updates to the diagnostics.
  • Advanced user guide: Complete test descriptions for both Windows and DOS

Priced at $399, PC-Doctor Service Center 7 is available today directly from the company, either by visiting www.pcdservicecenter.com or by calling (866) 289-7237. It also is available from Amazon.com. The kit includes:

  • a diagnostic CD containing both Windows and offline diagnostics,
  • optical media for testing CD and DVD capabilities,
  • a multipurpose USB device with LED indicators and bootable, low-level diagnostics to test systems without a hard drive, optical drive or display,
  • parallel, serial, USB and Ethernet loopback adaptors,
  • the newly designed PCI POST card,
  • a power supply tester,
  • documentation for both basic and advanced options, and
  • a professional canvas case for carrying the kit onsite.

Expert Offers Tips to Build Business Credit and Form a LLC or Corporation Quickly

Kevin Wessell, a nationally renowned business executive and highly respected expert in the field of business planning and corporate credit building and CEO of 1-800-Company.com, offers expert advice to those who wish to start a business: form a corporation or LLC and build business credit. Wessell explains how businesspeople can do this without affecting personal credit and regardless of personal credit history.

Los Angeles (PRWEB) July 29, 2008 — To succeed in the business world, Kevin Wessell, CEO of 1-800-Company.com, recommends individuals form a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) and build business credit, rather than risking personal credit. Wessell, a nationally renowned business expert, provides tips and insight for those interested in forming a business, helping them start on the correct path.

When starting a business, many people consider taking out a personal loan, maxing out their credit cards, borrowing from a family member, using their life savings, or even taking on a partner.

"But think twice before doing so," Wessell says. "With these options you risk going into debt, harming your personal credit history and even falling prey to lawsuits."

According to Wessell, the first step to success is forming a corporation or LLC. Wessell recommends forming a Nevada Corporation or LLC for the maximum personal asset protection and lowest tax base. "If they form a corporation or form a LLC and build business credit, they can get cash to cover start-up business expenses or grow their business. They can secure cash lines of credit to operate their business and cover automobile and equipment leases without a personal guarantee or personal credit check. They may also be able to obtain lines ranging from $50,000 up to $5 million," Wessell says. "Unsecured lines of credit can be obtained, though naturally, they are the most challenging."

The next item to think about is how long it takes to build credit for a business. "If someone starts building corporate credit from scratch it may take four or five years, whereas if they use a professional business credit building service or purchase an aged company or shelf corporation – an existing company that was formed months or years ago – it can take as little as 30 to 90 days," Wessell says.

Some people say business credit cannot be built separately from personal credit and that there is no way to speed up the credit building history. Wessell strongly disagrees.

"We have an enormous list of satisfied clients. We've been helping people form their own corporations and accelerate the building of their business credit for over 30 years. We have clients who have built successful multi-million dollar companies after incorporating with 1-800-Company.com and our affiliated companies."

In order to reduce the amount of time they have to wait to obtain business credit, many new business owners take advantage of these accelerated credit building programs and corporations that are already created with pre-established credit histories.

"In this modern-day economy, there simply isn't the luxury afforded to slowly build up a company. The competition is looking for fast funding in order to build and take over the marketplace," Wessell says. "One of the most important items a company needs in order to achieve success and rapid growth is a capital infusion, and this is where business credit is often critical to the success or failure of a company."
