When I go into my MSconfig it is only showing that I have one core processor. And I think this is affecting my game quality & performance. Help me, please :3

Why are you messing with MSconfig?

Second of all, please give us some more info. A "6 core" processor isn't going to get you anywhere.

Please review the sticky thread:


I would use other methods, instead of MSconfig, to verify all your CPU cores are detected.

  1. Start --> right-click on "Computer" --> Properties. What does it say there? six-core or just one?
  2. Device Manager --> Expand the "Processors" tab. How many scores show up on there?
  3. Download and install CPU-Z. Run CPU-Z. How many Cores and Threads is it reporting?
  4. Restart your computer and enter the BIOS. How many cores are detected by the motherboard BIOS?
