Phenom ll X2 will not run win7x64 when acc enabled

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi very new to the site and overclocking in general. Just bought a phenom ll x2 with hopes of onlocking the cores but from the gate i guess acc was enabled in bios and i wasnt able to install win7x64 untill i disabled it. After installing i tried to see if it would run enabled and of coarse it didnt. Just crashes. Again i am a greenhorn but i assume the two extra cores are unstable and cant be unlocked, but just wanted some affirmation from the experts in this field before i gave up all hope. Maybee there is some adjustment i can make to at least unlock one core? Any advise regarding any point in my question wil be appreciated. Can i unlock or cant i ? that is the question.lol

Try 32bit winders, I have 2 cpu's that will only run 4 cores under a 32bit os. 64bit hangs loading.

ive already installed 64 bit. I really wanted to use 64 bit beecause i have 8gig of memory to use of this machine. If i did switch it to 32 bit id have to reformat my hard drive which isnt a big deal cuz i dont have anything on it any way but id have to do a clean install and im not sure what id do with the product key? Is possibly unlocking the 3rd and 4th cores worth loosing 4gig of memory and going through this whole process? Opinions?

IIRC the product keys work for both 32 and 64 bit versions. You should have both discs and 1 key if you bought retail.

I would definitely use 32bit and a quad over 64bit and a dual core.

Have you tested 4 cores under a 32bit os? Does it hang at the splash screen with 4 cores under 64 or just not post?

Sometimes acc setting will make things very funky.
Try different %
try 0% on all cores stuff like that.

Try running MSconfig and click on boot then advanced, select number of cores from there.

And if all that still doesn't unlock it don't feel bad, mine didn't either. Just OC the heck out of it instead, they still rock as an x2! I have one in my backup rig.

When i use 4 cores on 64 bit it crashes as soon as it loads the files and starting windows screen appears. I Never tested the 4 cores on 32 bit but it did run the install of win7x32 but stoped there. Im almost positive the cores would work on 32 bit but just oc'ing the dual core is a possibility I might do and if i can get a stable three cores on 64 id defenetly go with that
