Intel Publishes Solutions Profile on PC-Doctor in the Digital Home

Reno, Nev. (PRWEB) December 12, 2005

PC-Doctor Inc. today announced availability of a new Solutions Profile published by Intel Corp. that highlights how PC-Doctor diagnostic and system information software, which is pre-installed on major brand Media Center PCs, helps manufacturers enhance the digital home experience.

The four-page profile is available as an Adobe Acrobat file at:

The profile provides an overview of how the combination of PC-Doctor software and Intel VIIV-based systems enhances the user experience in the digital home. Intel recognizes that user expectations are higher for Media Center PCs in the digital living room than for traditional PCs, said Doug van Aman, PC-Doctors chief marketing officer. PC-Doctor for Media Center PCs reduces unnecessary warranty returns, which frustrate consumers and are expensive for manufacturers. The software speeds up service calls by making it easy for the consumer to identify hardware problems and share system information with the manufacturer.

PC-Doctor for Media Center software -- the first third-party diagnostic solution for the new generation of digital entertainment devices -- is pre-installed on Media Center PCs manufactured by leaders such as Fujitsu and Hewlett-Packard. Media Center PCs have gained favor among consumers who want to store, share, and enjoy photographs, music, home video, and recorded TV as well as perform traditional computing tasks.

With a simple click of the mouse, PC-Doctor for Media Center lets non-technical consumers perform thorough checks of Media Center PC components, including the CPU, memory, ports, networking cards, hard disk and optical disc drives, removable media cards used by digital cameras and other devices, and wireless keyboards. If a problem is discovered, the PC-Doctor for Media Center software generates error codes that help the manufacturer remedy problems more quickly.

The tests run by PC-Doctor for Media Center mirror those that are run on the manufacturing floor by the PC-Doctor factory family of products software that reduces unnecessary warranty returns by as much as 50 percent and out-of-box failures by as much as 80 percent.
