Hi, hopefully someone can help me not do a re-install.
I cannot seem to activate the 2nd core, as defined by the Task Manager and 2 cpu charts. I'm not really sure if I'm even getting the benefit of the upgraded cpu. Started with a 64 3500+
Upgrade the BIOS to 1018 Set the BIOS to default. Used TheReturnOfAZ install guide (Thanx) Applied HotFix Edited the Registry Installed AMD Driver (220.127.116.11) (Verified in Device Manager) Installed/Uninstalled optimizer Rebooted/Cold Rebooted.
Resulting in No 2nd Processor Graph in Task Manager
Device Manager -> Processors -> 2 Athlon64 x2 Processors Device Manager -> Computer -> Not multiprocessor Bootup Athlon64 x2 4600+ Dual Core (Or something like that) SiSandra - 2 Cores cpu-z (1.38) reads the processor name correctly, but can't seem to see 2 separate cores Disabled LCD Smartie (LCD Display of Core utilization Task Manager -> View -> CPU History -> One Graph per CPU is Grayed out.
Am I missing something or just plain dense.
System Asus A8V Deluxe - KT800 Pro (Chip set) supposed to work after Bios 1014 WinXP Home (SP2) with all but last few weeks updates installed 2GB of memory 3 HDD (2xPATA - 1xSATA) Matrox p650 video card
Any help would be appreciated, I just don't want to do a reinstall. (2 years since the last one, updates upon updates + programs + utilities NOT GOING TO BE FUN.)
Hi you really need to do a fresh install so windows recognizes it . There is a way to change the HAL ,but didn't work for me wasted a lot of time and had to do a fresh install any way .I,ve also read you can do a windows repair .i heard that works too. Have you ever done a windows repair?BACK UP BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING! And I wouldn't use the hot fix or optimizer unless you need to
