I am running 10.9.2 and have the Snow Leopard disks. Can I use these for hardware diagnostics? Or what else can I do?
Try running the Apple Hardware Test with your Snow Leopard DVD set. You should be able to run the AHT from disk 2. Here's an excerpt from the Apple KB:

Using Apple Hardware Test on computers with OS X 10.5.5 to 10.6.8

AHT is located on the Applications Install Disc 2 and should be included with your computer or the MacBook Air Software Reinstall Drive on a MacBook Air (Late 2010). To start AHT on these computers make sure the Applications Install Disc 2 is inserted into the built-in optical drive, external Apple Superdrive, or for the MacBook Air (Late 2010) be sure the MacBook Air Software Reinstall Drive is inserted into a USB port. Please then follow steps 1-6 outlined in the "Using Apple Hardware Test on computers with OS X 10.7 or later" section of this article.
