    insert the disc 1 included, restart your MBP, and hold down the 'd' while it's booting. it'll goes into the hardware test screen. Then just use the instructions

    Hi There!
    Welcome and congrats on your purchase; you will be very happy from here on.

    To do a hardware test, start your computer from the Install disk. One of the options from Finder is Hardware Test. Run that. Hey presto! - hardware test done. :)

    You should also know about Disk Utilities (an app inside your Utilties folder), that will run a variety of diagnostic/repair routines on your disc and software. A good freebie that you might consider is Applejack,
    Good luck! :)

    Go into applications, Utilities and the DiskUtility should be there. This does it for me.

    Applejack is not compatible with Intel Macs.

    Check out Mac HelpMate.
