Troubleshooting your computer for a possible processor issue is not easy, in fact, it’s a tedious work to do as you will be relying on your PC’s behavior and errors to be able to determine if the problem has something to do with the CPU. And, unlike other components, high-end processors are expensive and while replacing the processor will immediately tell you if the old one has a problem, a replacement may not always be ready for your perusal and I am certain you won’t buy a new processor if you’re not sure if that’s really what the problem is all about.
You should also note that when the computer doesn’t power on or boot up, it doesn’t necessarily mean the processor is damaged because as long as your PC doesn’t have liquid-damage or hasn’t encountered severe overheating, the CPU may still be working properly. Only a few could actually detect issues with the processor but even if you’re not a technician, it doesn’t mean you won’t observe your computer’s performance, you must also take note of the errors your computer is showing.
