PHENOM ii UNLOCK PROBLEM - HELP NEEDED !! THANKS

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi there first of all im new to this forum so greetings to all ,

Ive recently unlocked my phenom ii 545 X2 - x4 (but only 3 cores work)

In windows it loads fine and the system runs alot faster but it is on x3 which makes me think that the 4th core is the bad core (core 3) I have a asus M4A785-TD-M-Evo motherboard and I have recently updated the bios to the 604 version which apperently you can turn off 1 core but in the ACC but there isn't a option for it. The only problem I have with running this is that when i shut down the pc the computer turns back on and you have to swich the power off to turn it off and when it reboots nothing apears on the monitor and the hdd light stays on.

-so is there any way to disable core 3?

or

-Is there anyway to stop the computer rebooting ?

many thanks Tim

You would just turn the ACC to 2 or 4% or whatever on the good cores, and leave the bad one at zero.

Try -2% ACC on the cores and see what happens.

gonna keep any eye on this. my m8 has a similiar problems, cant boot into 4 cores at all so maybe there will be a solution, im assuming u did all the general nitty gritty stuff like unleashed mode and acc on auto, maybe u should set each core manualy. also.. does ur bios state its 4 cores and in the post.. im assuming when u get into windows it shows only three cores?

might be something u have to edit in msconfig

msconfig > boot > Advanced Options > then tick the check box number of proccessors and set it to 4, assuming 4 can be selected

nooo idea how this would work or if its effective in anything at all, wont hurt to check though

I really think -2% ACC on the good cores, and 0 on the bad would work. -2% turned my Athlon II X3 into a Phenom II X4 (without an L3 cache).
