A display work station connected to a host computer includes a base planar 10 (Fig. 1) and a display planar 50. Base planar 10 controls the link to the host computer. The diagnostics for it have a short duration compared to the duration of the diagnostics for the display planar 50. There are instances when it is only necessary for the diagnostics for the base planar to be performed, such as when the system issues a reset or a two second timeout occurs.
