Hi,

I have an HP Media Elite 9000t computer. It has HP diagnostic tools. When I run the SMART Short Self Test after having installed Vista 32 anew, the test completes successfully. After I begin loading main-stream software (Adobe Photoshop, MS Office, etc.) and I rerun the test, it gets to 99% complete and just hangs there forever. What could be causing this. I don't think main stream software should cause this problem but what do I know.
