Where to get Apple Hardware Test CD

I want to check if my system hardware is suffering from the some issue for that I want to perform troubleshooting. I want to know how I can carry out this testing will I have to acquire some kind of software application for it.

Yes you can perform the hardware testing for your Apple MacBook for that you need to have the Apple Hardware Test (AHT) that encloses a suite of diagnostics that will perform test on the hardware of your MacBook. This is an excellent technique to find out a hardware concern when troubleshooting your system. This can be best used when you are facing some kind of problem on the hardware in your system while working.

Re: Where to get Apple Hardware Test CD

If you are using Intel-based Apple MacBook with Mac OS X v10.5.4 or previous, you can find the Apple Hardware Test application which will be placed on the Mac OS X Install Disc 1 and it should be with your system when you purchased it. If you still don?t have that then you can download it from the official Apple website and get that in the CD or DVD and then you can perform hardware test for your MacBook.

Think mainly current Mac do not have a different CD for the Apple Hardware Test CD. I think CD/DVD which is for system restores you will get hardware test software in the same. For this you need to check the CD which you have got with the system, if it contains Apple Hardware Test you need to just boot up holding the option key and choose that volume. After which you will be able to carry out the hardware test by troubleshooting.
