As stated updated this hp with an i5 560m core. Runs good but it's only
seeing 1 core from the i5 with 2 logic's. Updated BIOS from F 14 TO F 37,
no change. MSCONFIG in advanced boot is set at 2 cores. Still seeing only
1 core. Any tips, hints, etc ? This is the core.
reset the BIOS by removing the CMOS battery, while the main battery is removed, and no power to the motherboard . With workstation/ desktop motherboards this is often necessary, figure the same logic would hold true for a laptop. While you are at it check the voltage of that battery ~
Thanks and all good tips and leads. I have to replace the MB due to
a keyboard ribbon lock breakage. So a new CMOS batt goes in the MB
i DID see 4 cores in MSCONFIG advance boot and for some dumb reason
deleted that and now only shows 2 cores, but Devise Mgr is seeing 4.
I'm using CORE TEMP to watch core temps, but also loaded CPUZ
to see things and both are only showing 1 core.
It's just a simple bug I have to sort out. I'll let ya know when I get
it on it's fresh MB.
Thanks for the replies.
