    Quick and to the point without the background:

    As there is memtest86 for intense memory testing and error finding, are
    there any programs such as this to identify bad/errored/problems in a cpu?
    Looking for some way to somewhat check a cpu such as memtest checks memory,
    before swapping out with a much slower cpu for a couple weeks to see if the
    problem goes away.

    In the 'real world', it can be generalized that CPU's tend to be black or
    white: either they function fine or they don't function at all. It is
    extremely rare to find one with a subtle fault.

    I ram prime 95 on the questioned notebook and ran it for 12 hours on torture
    test with 0 errors. I'm thinking it's not the CPU in the end after all I am
    reading. Thanks for your replies.
