Quad Only Showing One Core - Page 2

post #11 of 30
hmm, never any experience with that mobo, but the issue i had was on an EVGA 680i A1, and i had a E2180 in there, and i put in a q6600, and in the device manager it only showed 2 cores, until i hit uninstall on both, then restarted, and it was all better.. i would try that..

Did you upgrade this machine from a P4 or something? Windows XP had two versions of its NT kernel, a single core version and a multiple core version. Which one you got depended on the hardware you had at installation time. You can try a repair, but you may have to reinstall Windows.

This is weird. My friend is telling me that in device manager, all 4 cores are showing up, but under Core Temp & CPUZ, it's only showing 1 core.

Sounds like it's time to reinstall XP.
