Computer Requirements

Precision Test Environment (PTE) Setup Requirements

NOTE: 2018 Macs, 2020 PCs, and newer will probably not work with the current T.O.V.A. PTE.

Please see our Compatibility page for specifics. Contact us to be notified when we release an update.

The PTE setup is simpler, without external monitor or speakers.
  • Testing requires rebooting your computer.
  • Some computers may need a T.O.V.A. boot CD or flash drive.
  • Some wireless keyboards or mice may not be supported.

External Audio/Video (EAV) Setup Requirements

The EAV setup allows testing without rebooting your computer.

  • Requires an external VGA monitor, as on a desktop computer
    • Must natively support standard VGA resolutions
  • Requires external speakers with a standard 3.5 mm stereo plug for the auditory T.O.V.A. test
  • A VGA adapter (not included) may be required. See the EAV page for details.
  • Disable Sleep/Standby mode to avoid test failure.
