Well i was playing Spores with winamp opened ,
then i was jumped to the blue screen of death
Computer restarted and i ve found that the processing speed of EVERYTHING decreased by twice
I ve read the FAQ and turned off the EIST and CIE
I ve checked the properties in my computer
I m a nub in hardware configuration
so i wanna ask
1)Did my computer actually switch off 1 of my core after the blue screen of death ?
if so how to activate it again ? Or was it after the blue screen of death 1 of my core just KIA
and nth can be done apart from getting a new one ?
Do you have 2 physical cpu's ? Or are you talking about dual core ? From the looks of your CPUZ screenshot you have one dual core CPU and it looks ok to me .... E6320 running at stock speed. Did you run benchmarks prior to and post BSOD ? That would help to determine your alleged loss of performance. And was the performance loss in all apps or only games or only Spore ? Also would be good to know your exact system specs like mobo, psu, ram video card.
yeah i was confused too
I just got 1 Dual core CPU
i ve checked my ram/display card and every things fine
right now it takes 5 min to start the OS
and i cant even run my homeworld 2 smoothly
so i suspect only 1 of my core is working
I can see the CPU usage remains @ around 9 - 30 % in idle stage
50 - 90% while running games or winamp
^if the guy can't spell "noob" correctly, i doubt he knows how to overclock.
I recommend you rightclick your "C" drive in my computer, click properties, tools, and defragment.
Then in that tools menu, hit check disk for errors.
reboot and it will take a while but will show whether your harddrive is dying.
get rid of your XP theme. that will have the biggest impact in any of your games.
