    intel i3 330m. number of cores problem


      Excuse me everyone, first i'm sorry for my bad english, i'm not from US.


      I had a problem with my laptop processor on cpuZ it's show that it has only 1 Cores and 2 Threads, when bought it, i'd check it shows 2 Cores and 4 Threads, but the next i checked again than it's shows 1 Cores and 2 threads.

      From my Laptop:http://i54.tinypic.com/kc3ur.jpg

          ooh... nevermind.. thank you.. i've fix the problem..

          in advanced boot section in msconfig i must unchecked it first.. number of proccessor..


          i checked it 2 procesor before.. because i think 2 Core 4 Threads mean 2 number of proccessor. False understanding..

          That cause windows only detect 2 proccessor 1 physical cpu + 1 virtual cpu (2 threads)..


          So i unchecked it first.. then reboot.. then it back to normal.. it shows 2 Cores and 4 Threads again..

          so i check number of proccessor is 4.
