Failed Multi Core Test

Something is wrong.  The CPU has been running at 100% for the past while – incredibly slow! So…I ran some tests and got this message.  Failed Multi-Core Test.  Here’s the message:

The hardware is not functioning properly. To correct the problem:
Turn off the system.
Detach the power cord and wait for one minute.
Re-attach the power cord and re-boot the system.
Re-run the test.

So here’s my question….does anyone have any experience with this?  Does this mean the CPU is “toast”?  It’s now 3.5 years of age.

Come back at me internet friends!
