Only 2 out of 4 instances starting up...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello there OCN,
First time post here, so be nice.

I thought I would start up folding today on my cpu, so I download the thing and put them into different folders like so


I set up Core 0 and just copied the .cfg file into the other folders with the .exe, I changed the machine ID's in each of the .cfg files, so they are all the same.
But however on restarting only Core 0 and Core 1 start up... No Core 2 and Core 3...

I check in Task manager and FahMon and there is only 2 things showing up there.

So please help
The traveller

What you want to do is uninstall/delete the four instances, and then download and install the Windows SMP. You won't have to worry about 4 instances, and it will give you much higher PPD.

So will this SMP optimise all four cores?

Yes, smp will run all four cores. You can set a max-val other than 100% if you don't want to use every idle cycle on Fah. Most people just leave it at 100 though.

Thanks for the help every one, but now when I go to task manager and look at performance, it dosn't show all 4 cores at 100% it only syays they are at 30%. At the moment my Q6600 is getting 426.11 ppd, but when I was doing the other folding it was giving me that ppd for each core...
