Open up your task manager and then go to the Performance tab.

If you see two graphs on top, both your cores are working.

Just a quick hint. You can edit your posts instead of making new ones.

What do you mean one core is being used? Are you going by the "processes" tab in Task Manager?

maybe your pirated version of xp needs some configuring since it was made on a single core? You just need to set boot settings that allow xp to see more cores

Becarefull on how many reply's you are giving on a thread if no-one answers. If you have forgotten something, just edit your first post and state your reason for editing, It's simples and it won't get on the admin's back's soo much
