what did you use to test and verify that your processor is defective?
thanks, good question...im kind of noob on this...i tried PC Pitstop(dont know how reputable) and my laptop(6 months old) usually comes in low percentiles for
its class...they flag the CPU, memory, and the graphics proc. as all being very slow for their class in laptops...i tried HotCPUTester
trial version and let it run for 6 hours overnight and it didnt really find anything but it wasnt benchmking...Everest had like 6 quick
CPU benchmks and about 3 were ok for class and 2-3 others the result was about 50% lower than where it should have been...Everest
on GPU tests it was terrible on the 2-3 tests there...and the RAM tests(2 GB) on various programs sometimes does ok, sometimes
looks to be 50% of normal...i tried sysoft sandra but it doesnt run too well on my pc....i saw a review of the exact same laptop that
i have, and the guy posted results for a Pi Benchmaking utility for this comp. vs others and mine took almost exactly twice as long
as it should have...i have just recently re-installed the factory image so theres not a lot of junk on there...just doesnt seem to
run as fast as it used to...i used to be able to multitask a little on this thing....is there a better program to use to check hardware
health on this thing??
seems like my warranty might be good, should i bring it into an authorized center and let them check it for me- would they do that?
am just wondering what to do from here
