Processor QQQ...is it all or nothing??

I have an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550...I assume this meanthere are 4 proc on the chip (or vice-verse) ...If one of the chips, or 1/4 of the Processor goes south...will the entire chip seize...or will you still have 3 chip operating??

I ask this because i am always getting a listing in my event viewer stating that
1 is in Idle State
3 are in performance state
0 are in throttle state...the complete msg here:

Things like this are often resolved by a bios update. Just be sure you have a backup and restore point in case.

It isnt saying that it is broken just that 1 core is idle
