Hard Drive Diags

What is the key sequence to run the built-in hard drive diags on a Dell system?

On the newer ones, F12 at boot, choose Dell Diagnostics from the menu.

ctrl-alt-D will get you a very limited set of quick tests as well.

ctrl alt D only works on C series system with bios' revisions released after the C400 hit RTS.
F12 should give you the one time boot menu where you can select the PSA diags, once those finish it will launch the 32bit diagnostics which has more depth to the testing.
