Good morning all. I am trying to figure out why 1 of my 6 cpu cores is not posting on pc boot up or in task manager. I am useing a AMD 1100T cpu for 6 cores. My mother board does recognize 6 cores. When i first built it. The starting post did show 6 cores. Is there a way to see if a core went bad or got turn'd off by acident if so how do i turn it back on. BTW i have a 1000 watt corsair psu. 4 gigs of memory. an Asus M4a89GTD/PRO USB3
do you have amd calibration clock on your motherboard? that can unlock extra cores. also could try start, type msconfig, boot tab, advanced options check numbers of processors then check box and scroll down and select all 6 if you can, also check in bios your motherboard can prolly unlock it im sure
I didn't need to because when i first built the comp it found all 6 cores NO problem. Wish there was an easier way to talk. I really am trying to figure why it only see's 5 cores instead of the 6. I wonder if a core went bad or something.
Hey, if none of the above works, go to msconfig -> Boot -> advanced options -> untick the box next to "number of processors". restart your computer then go back into msconfig, tick the box and select "6 cores"
With the x6 cpu, activating the core unlocker in bios can cause a sporadic glitch resulting in a core being offline. A post on another site advised that since the x6 really doewsn't have any unlocked cores, core unlocker is redundant. If you run the Asus Turbo utility and Auto tune to the first fast tune setting, all six cores are set at 16x and 3712 Mhz. I have 1090T Black, M4A89GTD Pro /USB 3.0 and it's been very stable since I stopped using the Bios Core unlocker setting.
I am going to upgrade to the AMD Performance memory by Patriot as I can't find any mfg memory configurator that gives me a satisfactory 16 GB solution.
