hi guys,

recently using Everest(home edition) found out core 1 sits constantly at 0%,while the other 3 cores are working fine. The processor is quad core AMD A10-5750M APU with Radeon HD Graphics. The laptop itself works fine,but that bugs me hence seeking advice. Is it normal the first core to be at 0%...if any,shouldn't that be core 4? Does that mean core 1 has stopped working?

Last week one of my RAM memory sticks stopped working. Not sure if that has any connection at all with the CPU ,but as a non tech person could assume not working core could increase the usage of RAM memory,or maybe just splits between the other 3 cores.

Thanks in advance

Does Task Manager show the same?
