HELP! Can't do ANY diagnosing on Late-2011 MBP w/ 16GB RAM! :-(((
Authored by: MadMacMan on Dec 31, '11 09:51:21AM

Alright, I still don't understand how to find either the "Holding the D" function and/or some other utility (3rd party or Apple) for those of us who have a (Late-2011) MacBook Pro!? No disks, just a useless SuperDrive and no USB stick either. I did make myself my own USB restore flash drive, however, and I also have the Recovery HD partition unhidden, mounted, but I just cannot seem to locate this ".diagnostics"...folder(is it?) or is it a pkg or a file? :-( System files are also visible, so I did some manual searching for the elusive diagnostic "something-or-other". No dice across the board. :(

I would really like to check my 2x8GB RAM chips, which, thus far, work perfectly fine and show up correctly everywhere they should, including System Info/Profiler, "About this Mac", iStat Menus, Activity Monitor, and a few others. I just want to make sure, as I had not heard of that memory company before and the price was incredible ($139 shipped, no tax for BOTH from a seller on Amazon).

Thanks for helping! ;-)
