I recently downloaded the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics. It installed properly.
I've tried running the System Fast Test twice. Both times, it passed the first step and then stopped progressing 10% of the way into the Video Memory Fast Check. I let it idle for over an hour and nothing happened. A couple programs were running in the background (skype, firefox, slack) but I wasn't actively doing anything on the computer.
I rebooted the computer between attempts. My OS is up to date, as is the HP assistant.

You have not provided an HP product number. So I don't know if you need UEFI or Legacy HP diagnostics.
You should run HP hardware diagnostics offline.
Download HP Diagnostics at this site. Install to a USB stick or follow directions at this site to run currently installed diagnostics from the HDD.
Or boot to the USB stick if you download the latest version at the above site.. Run full system tests.

X6F75AA#ABL is the product number (for the HP Support Assistant).
I don't have a USB stick handy. Are you saying I can't run the program directly from my computer, or that it needs to be run from a USB to figure out what's wrong with the version that's on my computer?
My computer is working 100% fine - it's only the HP PC Diagnostics that appears to be broken.
