AMD Fx 4130 Quad Core Processor 3.81 GHZ
ASUS M5 A97 LE R2.0



Hello I went to my task manger then performance and there are only 1 top bar and one bottom the op is "CPU Usage History" the bottom "Physical Memory Usage History".
Shouldn't there be 4 top bars for the Quad cores? Then i used CPUZ and at the bottom it shows "Cores (1)" how can i get all my cores to be running?

I went to msconfig/ Boot / Boot Advanced Options. and Numbers of processors (I checked it off) and it only shows 1.

More about : quad core core

Msconfig will only show 1 processor because you only have 1 processor. The 1 processor has 4 cores, however.

Task manager/Performance should show 4 charts/graphs on the top row; one for each core. Below that, the memory usage graph. If yours only shows 1 core, check your BIOS at startup to see if it somehow got set to disable the other 3 cores.

In taskmgr click View>CPU History and make sure you have "One graph per CPU" selected.

Hello,

It would be helpful to know what processor you have..
In task manager, click:
View
CPU History
On Graph Per CPU (second one down)

If it is set the the first chart it doesn't show the cores...Let me know if this takes care of it..
