Quantex first with Intel diagnostics toolkit

Direct sales giant Quantex Microsystems claims it is the first PC maker to ship with systems pre-installed with Intel's LANDesk Client Manager diagnostics and troubleshooting tool kit for networked PCs.

The software detects and diagnoses problems and can send an e-mail to Quantex technical support.

Quantex said it had designed its motherboard especially for LANDesk. "It's a world first. It's not easy to do and we see it as being quite a coup for us," said a spokesman for the company.

"Computers can be very mysterious to the average user. Quantex has taken the opportunity to remove some of that mystery and help the user avoid potential problems," said Ian Warren, Quantex corporate sales manager.
