Introduction

The CPU is very important and works directly with the motherboard. It basically tells your computer nearly everything it does, so if you have already figured out that the problem you are experiencing can't be the piece of hardware you thought it was then it is probably the CPU. A slow computer, random reboots, and "blue screens of death" are the common problems that arise from a bad or broken CPU.
