« on: February 02, 2011, 10:24:45 AM »
Hey lads,

I am having a quad core processor but only 3 of them are showing in task manager, and even better - when i try msconfig to enable my 4 processor, it only shows 3. I am running windows 7 ultimate x64, And have bin looking up forums to see whats wrong but i cant understand what it is. Anything I should be changing in my bios? Please help me out on this one!

Thankssss ::)

Alright, first of all my special thanks to genius and heartsfan. Apreciated the help. It is sorted.
What seemed to be the problem was the fact that in my bios there seemed to be an option to
select the ammount of cores.. which is default on auto.

genius showed me this video.. for anyone who might have a simular problem. And it worked out great.
