Octane Diagnostics - extended_tests runtime

Unread postby HurricaneJames » Thu Aug 24, 2017 9:02 pm

I just upgraded an Octane with new CPU, RAM, and graphics. I wanted to be sure all the new hardware was good, so I ran IDE diagnostics. Everything came back as good. Then I decided to try "extended_tests" because why not...

I have no idea what extended_tests are, but they said they would take approximately 25 minutes. It is now 90-120 minutes later and they are still running. I have a two green boxes, one with a white '-' in it. I cannot find anything about them in the owner's manual and my google fu is coming up empty. Do these tests ever finish, or do they just keep running until I hit esc?

Thanks,
