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 ?

appreciate all helps orz

I'm confused. I see an e6320 running at 1.86Ghz and 2 cores.

FSB 1066, check.
Multiplier 7x, check
4Mb level 2 cache, check.

What am I missing here?

I have missed something here...why do you feel you have only 1 processor active?
October 9, 2008 3:49:18 PM

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.

I ve ran CPU speed test and i just got 1800 Mhz which is way slower than my previous test
October 9, 2008 3:52:40 PM

You only had 1 cpu to start with. 1 CPU with 2 cores!!!!! And your CPU is running full stock speed.
October 9, 2008 3:57:38 PM

Your CPU is 1860 stock, so you are nuts. Put down the crack pipe.

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

btw wads benchmark prior and BSOD . I m too nubby

If one core had blown, you'd have a bigger problem than slow boot-up.

How much HD space have you got left?

Defragged lately?

After BSOD, it takes windows a little longer than usual to get going. Once in you should get a message about the system recovered from a serious error.
You should be fine after than.

Something else is wrong - your CPU is fine.
October 9, 2008 4:15:03 PM

i still got 100 GB on my HD

is there anything else that will cuz the lose of performance after the BSOD ?

Run a checkdisk

Those screen shots look messed up. Do you maybe need to reinstall your graphics driver?
October 9, 2008 4:36:51 PM

I see an xp theme, might i step out on a limb and say you got alot of other crap on your computer. IE bit torrent, Limewire and ............

run a anti-virus. a legit one, not norton 2009 that you downloaded from a site.

your processor is fine

on the first picture of cpuz,

you can select core 1 & core 2 in the bottom section.

If your cpu is running lower than 1.8 its because you have setting in bios to save energy when idle.

When it's in full load, it will reach full throttle.

Another way to check if 2 processor running:

Press ctrl+alt+del

click performance tab n you should see 2 graph there.

You blue screens are prolly because of overheat/driver with wireless or video card. Or bad ram. Can also be caused by trojan/virus.

Post details of bsod if possible

Did you overclock any? I know that on my old mobo if I made it crash (I like to tinker with things WAY too much), it would revert to stock speeds. That could be what happened.
October 12, 2008 10:16:53 PM

^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.

good luck!
