If a computer serves for a long time, it may have various issues, which will slow down the computer or make it unbootable. Does your computer encounter these problems? If so, you should run a computer diagnostic to detect and fix errors.
Some users would like to run a PC health check. However, this check can’t help you identify specific hardware problems or give you solutions. To identify the specific hardware problem, you need hardware diagnostic tools.
As we all know, all of the parts in a computer will affect its performance. However, what affects the computer performance most is the CPU, the hard drive, and the memory. CPU, memory, and I/O devices (including hard drives) are referred to as the three core components of the computer. If possible, you should run a hardware test tool to diagnose them regularly so that you can make sure they work well.
As for PC diagnostic tools, you can read on to get them. Some of them are PC diagnostic software. The rest of them are built-in Windows utilities.
Checking the CPU
A CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the computing core and control unit of a computer. It mainly includes an Arithmetic Logic Unit, a Controller, a Cache, and a Bus. Its function is mainly to explain computer instructions and to process data in computer software. It is one of the core components of the computer.
Checking the CPU will help you analyze whether it works well on your computer and test its real performance in your computer. So, how can we check the CPU? You can use the following tools.
Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool
The Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is mainly used to verify the functionality of an Intel microprocessor. It will check for brand identification, the processor’s operating frequency, specific processor features, and perform a stress test on the processor.
