[Testing] Self-test hangs on XO 1.5

Additional Information:
1) I figured out why it was stuck on the lid switch portion of the test. It
needed me to close the screen and I figured out that I needed to put the
screen in ebook format to do the ebook switch.
2) I am testing with two XO 1.5s. One passes the heat spreader test, the
other doesn't. What in the world is a heat spreader test?

Error message on failing XO:

"...temperature rose 11 degrees C - FAIL
Selftest failed. Return code = -1"


When I tried the graphical test option to test all of the devices this is
what I got:

Testing int:0
SD card is locked
Selftest failed. Return code =-1
... Press any key to proceed ...

Every thing else seems ok except for the heat spreader test error and the
above error on the laptops. Weird thing though is that the information on
battery test seem to flash for a millisecond. I only saw this when I kept
pressing the battery icon and not getting anything except "battery" text on
the bottom.

Help please!
Thank you,
