i have a laptop which i keep my games and everything on. i just bought a new gaming desktop to put my stuff on. i cloned my drive and put it in my new computer. i got everything working but i noticed that my CPU moniter, task manager, and msconfig.exe were reading my cpu as if it had 2 logical cores instead of 8. i think the problem is that the clone thinks that the cpu has 2 cores because my laptop had 2 cores. i need help with making my computer read ALL the cores. my specs are in the info about my computer. if more info is needed it is on newegg. it is called CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1348 Desktop. thanks.
P.S. i sent my computer back due to a graphics card that went out. the problem might be fixed with the new computer. this is just a precaution if it is not fixed.
If you have games on steam, you can backup the steamapps folder (Usually in C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps), install steam on the new computer then copy all the steam files back in... that will save time installing some games. Stand-alone installs will have to be redone however. Some older games that don't have any sort of DRM will copy over but I wouldn't even bother.
