One of the computer components that is very vital is its processor. The processor function on the computer is the brain of all computer capabilities. Every command and action performed by every computer device always originates from the data process in the processor. Therefore, if the processor is damaged, it will be very detrimental to the user. Some ways to find out the damage to the processor can be seen as follows.
CPU cannot be turned on
The event that often occurs if the processor is damaged is not able to turn on the CPU at all. In fact, even if the CPU can turn on, the screen will not display any alias blank screen. This may indicate a problem with the computer hardware. One suspicion will lead to the processor.
If you listen to the CPU, you can hear the fan noise on the CPU. However, if there is no sound other machines even tend to be “quiet”, then it will strengthen if the computer processor is damaged.
If you are already good at disassembling the CPU, you can try to dismantle it first so that it can be more certain. On certain types of motherboards, there are those who install the motherboard permanently and there can be uninstalled. If the type of motherboard you use can disassemble the processor, then you are lucky. Because, you just replace the processor. It’s different if the type of motherboard is permanent, you have to replace it completely.
The computer suddenly shuts down when turned on
This section is different from the first point because the computer can still be turned on. But in a few moments, the computer suddenly turns itself off. The computer does not shut down when you do activities or when you open heavy programs such as games, videos, graphic design and others. Even the death of a computer often occurs continuously when you turn on the computer.
From symptoms like that there could possibly be serious problems with the CPU. Can it be on the RAM, hard drive, or the processor. To better understand it, Nada must first dismantle the CPU and look carefully at some components that are suspected of being damaged. The characteristics of a damaged processor can be seen with the naked eye. If there are scorch marks on the top of the processor, then it has a great potential for damage to the processor. However, for more certain you can take it first to the service to ask whether the processor is still in good condition or not.
It often fails when running heavy programs
The next way that can be seen is whether the processor is still good or not when opening heavy programs. If the computer can still run heavy programs for a long time, then the processor is no problem. However, if the computer actually often errors when opening heavy programs, then there is the possibility of damage to the processor.
These heavy programs are programs that require large computer specifications to run. Easy examples are games, graphic design programs, video editing programs, and also Android programming. Maybe you think that some of these programs will not work because of problems with RAM or VGA. Though the processor may also experience problems when some programs are not running or force close often occurs.
For how to check it is almost the same as the previous points, namely by checking some important components such as RAM, VGA and processor. If you have replaced RAM and VGA and some of the heavy programs still cannot run, then there could be a major problem in the Processor section.
Suddenly die and suddenly turn on again
This feature is the most annoying feature and we can be sure the problem is in the processor. An example in this case is when the computer is turned on, the computer can start normally, however, some time the computer suddenly shuts down suddenly. Intermittent some time later, the computer turns back on as a restart.
From this incident we can see the computer like a continuous restart without the control of the user. Damage can be said to include severe processor really can not run the procedure as it should. The easiest way to overcome this is to replace the old processor with a new processor.
Look at the physical processor directly
The last way is the easiest and most certain is to look directly at the physical form of the processor that is damaged. Usually a broken processor has a break in the jumper pin. In addition, there are scorch marks that are rather blackish in color. Burnt scars can occur because the processor is often exposed to overheating.
that’s the way to find out which processor damage is easily seen. From the discussion above, we can conclude that the processor damage is very fatal. If you want to change the processor, make sure you understand what are the types of socket processors currently available. it is so that you are not in vain to buy a new processor but does not fit into the motherboard
