Perhaps you didn't reinstall Windows when you set up this computer? My guess is that Windows is loaded with its uniprocessor CPU setup instead of its multiprocessor CPU setup. If so, try a repair install.

that would be guse too but if not do this. click run, Type MSconfig, click boot option tab, & click advanced options uncheck number of processors. Then reboot and see if this fixes your problem. And it is not a XP it is an X2. You might want to change your topic title. :)

AMD ... XP ... as in Windows.

Seriously, just run the Windows AMD X2 patch for Windows XP from the AMD site for crying out loud and move along.

Cripes ... when you do a ctrl alt del and bring up the task manager can you click the performance tab and see two boxes under CPU Usage history?

If so ... your two cores are working fine.

Not sure about the X2's, if they do this or not, but it solved my disappearing core problem.
If you have Cool and Quiet enabled, it may shut down the cores not being used, and also lower the core speed of your CPU if it is not needed.
I noticed this with my PII 920, after a while if I was doing something simple and brought up the task manager, I noticed only 2 cores at times, and only 1 core at other times. Turn off Cool and Quiet and see what happens.
If that does not work, try simply deleting the processor from device manager, and let Windows reinstall it when it reboots.

Cool and Quiet also seems to never let your CPU run at full speed. With it enabled, my 3D mark 06 score was about 8500.
Turn it off, and I get over 15,000. Big, big, big difference.

You don't need to reinstall windows for this problem. You should be able to just update the CPU driver in the device manager.
