Using HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI)
HP PC Hardware Diagnostics is a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) that allows you to run
diagnostic tests to determine whether the computer hardware is functioning properly. The tool runs outside
the operating system so that it can isolate hardware failures from issues that are caused by the operating
system or other software components.

use the keyboard attached to your tablet. The on-screen keyboard, which displays in tablet mode, cannot
