Solved One core instead of Two?! Tags: CPUs Core Configuration Processors Last response: November 28, 2009 9:28 AM in CPUs Share l_r_c_t November 27, 2009 7:33:41 PM Hello Everybody: Recently I went through the "System Configuration" and I noticed that under the "Boot" tab -> "Advanced Options", the number of processors written there is 1 processor (and unmarked). It means that one core of my dual core processor is turned off? Another thing that I know that can be affected by this option, if not set right, is the CPU-Z software that checks that CPU and can cause faulty data report. Should I change it? Does it make in difference? Thank you. More about : core Best solution cjl a b à CPUs November 27, 2009 8:52:22 PM Nope, as long as the box is unchecked, it shouldn't matter. If 2 cores show up in CPU-Z, and 2 show up in task manager, you're fine. l_r_c_t November 28, 2009 9:28:53 AM Thank you. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
