I want to test my hardware function and find errors.

Is there any System Testing tool available for Ubuntu ?

A live-CD which is used to convince to install it should contain a hardware compatibility test. Please tell them. After typing an install command like below, one should be told where to click next to execute the program. Please tell them (that other systems do plenty of that). – Papou May 16 at 14:02

You can use

It is best testing Utility for Linux Systems.

It is having a Dash icon. But runs in terminal. Takes few hours to run a comprehensive test. Finally gives a report.
