Hey all!
Ive got a AMD Phenom II x2 555 BE.
And ive read throughout several forums, that i can if im lucky change the dual core to a quad core.
I did as they say in video, change to hybrid mode and set it to auto. (and booting in instant)
But something strange happens ;s when i get in i dont get the quad core as i by luck may get.
When i once again go into bios i see that the "Auto" setting has been changed to normal, wanna know why ;) 
Thanks in advance

Did you 'Save And Exit' after making changes to the BIOS.?

The X2's extra cores are usually disabled for a reason and you sometimes you won't be able to reactivate them, hence why they're dual-core instead of quad-core.
