Hello,
My Toshiba I7 laptop originally showed 8 cores and now it only shows 4. Is there some setting that changed or am i losing performance.

With Hyper Threading it should be 8 and 4 without. Did you change something in the BIOS? try setting the BIOS to default.

Didnt change bios, but I was certainly not aware that it had anything to do with hyperthreading (which i now nothing about;is there a setting besides in the bios). Thanks for your quick response (Rob)

You should be able to find it in Advanced BIOS Features.
