Burn-in test


About burn-in tests

Burn-in testing is a rigorous diagnostic process used to detect hardware and other computer problems. It involves running assessments over an extended period of time, which push different elements of a PC to their maximum potential. This allows for marginal devices, or those with defects (inherent or otherwise), to be screened and eliminated. This ultimately increases the PC’s efficiency and reliability, as computer failures are frequently due to faults in hardware and other elements.


Three benefits of running burn-in tests:

Reduce the need for subsequent customer care: When you implement a burn-in test within production lines, you significantly cut later instances of service calls, RMAs, and NTF and NDF (No Trouble/ Defect Found). This reduces time and money wastage by companies.

End-user satisfaction: By significantly reducing the chance of PCs falling victim to hardware failure, burn-in testing increases customer satisfaction.

Improve brand reputation: Performing burn-in testing leads to consistent product reliability, which directly influences brand image in the consumer market.


A self-boot burn-in test, such as QuickTech PRO and QuickCAST Mobile, will ensure your essential hardware is reliable. These diagnostics are robust, accurate and quick, and act directly on the core hardware level (i.e. without needing to alter the O/S).  These tests also reveal exactly where faults lie (e.g. hard disc, memory, mainboard etc).


A Windows stress test is O/S based, and recommended as a follow up to self-boot burn-in testing. During this process, Windows systems are pushed to levels where the unreliable components fail. QuickTech for Windows is one of the most advanced tests of this kind, effectively validating all hardware, peripherals and sub-systems.

Ultimately, burn-in tests ensure that your product is reliable and efficient before it leaves the manufacturing plant. This benefits the end-user as well as customer support services, while also improving brand reputation
