so I’ve had this cpu laying in a box for about a year now because I think I shorted it during a motherboard diagnostic, I have already replaced it with a similar 4800mq and I am posting this to see if anyone knows how to go about diagnosing a cpu , I am not sure if it’s dead or not, and need more information on how to properly check it ...
I have checked the capacitors around the die and they’re all reading a dead short , (0 Homs) , I don’t want to risk putting it in a working device because I am not sure how safe is that (don’t wanna kill another motherboard lol) ....
So isit possible that the cpu is fine and that’s it only one or a few caps that are shorted ? Or isit gone ?
