Hmm. If I understand your problem correctly, I think that the circuit check service will help you, try contacting it. By the way, my father was in this situation. My father and I have a small company and we have more than ten computers. This is a small IT company and it often happens that we should to check or repair computers, because we are just starting out and the equipment is not new. I often repaired so I know a lot of services and paths. Guys I'll be honest, try to buy new equipment, I'm tired of repairing old computers:) This is just advice from life.
