My Dual Core Intel Core 2 Duo is paralyzed !

Hi !

My PC when I use it is paralyzed for one or two minutes and then continues, and so continuously for a very short time.

I did a test with the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool and I got an error:

What does this error mean to me?

Error(s) from the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is/are expected when testing Core 2 Duo processors. The tool was designed to test the capabilities of the newer Core processors and these older Core 2 Duo processors simply do not have all of these capabilities (and specifically do not support a CPU Brand String).

 

As for what is causing this paralysis, I have no idea. There are all sorts of things that could be causing this.
