Difference Between Intel's Core 2 Duo And Their Pentium Dual Core

Oct 30, 2011

I'm not overly familiar with low-end hardware (look at my specs ). What was the difference between Intel's Core 2 Duo and their Pentium Dual core? They seemed like identical CPUs to me.

Upgrade From Dual Core To Quad Core?

Nov 9, 2010

QX9650, quad core, task manager, cpu-z, cpu-id, shows showing only 2 two cores.I recently upgraded an Intel E8500 to a QX9650 and had the problem of Windows 7 only showing 2 of the 4 cores.It took a few frustrating hours to find the solution, but I got there in the end without the need for a Windows re-install.

1st: You must have Windows 7 Professional. Home Premium does not support more than 2 cores. Upgrade to Pro.

2nd: If Task manager and CPU-Z are only showing 2 cores, you'll be feeling pretty confused, right?

Go to Start-->Run, type MSCONFIG.Under the BOOT tab, click 'Advanced Options'.In the top left corner it says "Number of Processors" (you'll have been here already and it says '2').Uncheck this and do a reboot.This solved my hours of confusion. Now I have 4 cores in Task Manager, CPU-Z and all is well.If all this fails, then get yourself set up for an OS reinstall; that should get you where you want to be.

Sandy Bridge E3 Xeon Vs I7 Core Comparison?

Jul 2, 2011

I've been comparing the specs on the following processors and as a non-gamer the Xeon processors look very attractive. What I like is that Intel offers the choice of a Xeon 80 watt non-graphics processor versus it's 95 watt on-board graphics processor. It would have been nice if Intel offered that same choice in it's Core line. Many users prefer a PCI graphics card and don't use the on-chip graphics, so why not a choice, like with the Xeon line?

Dual Core But Windows 7 Only See 1 Core

Jul 8, 2011

I have a pc that came with XP but is now running windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit. (SP1 with all updates)

Ever since i upgraded windows has only seen one core even though its a dual core system. The processor is a AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+ 2.20Ghz.

I have checked the BIOS and cant find any related settings and when i go to msconfig in the boot menu (advance) Number of processors is unchecked by default and if i check it the drop down only shows one core. The device manager is not showing any driver issues.

Windows 7 X64 Ultimate Using Only One Core Of T5600 Core 2 Duo

Jul 28, 2010

I'm having is that I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate (from XP Ultimate) and the computer was working really slowly.

First I opened task manager and found only one CPU was being monitored, there was only one window for one CPU, not two windows with only one firing!

This I found strange, checked the WEI and my processor got a 2.3 rating (its a Core 2 Duo @ 1,83Mhz, a T5600), I then downloaded a tone of widgets to check if they could "see" the other core, nothing. I went into msconfig, the no. of processors box is unchecked, if I check it, the drop down menu only gives me the option of picking 1 CPU.

using Vista, but I can't seem to be able to use his fix: [URL] (bottom of page, can't find the HAL detection checkbox)

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate on an HP nx9420 laptop with 3GB of RAM, a new HDD (250GB), the old one just stopped working really, and the Core 2 Duo T5600 @ 1,83Mhz that is running only one core.

Quad Core Processor Only Running On One Core?

Jul 3, 2012

I'm having an issue with my CPU. It seems that it is only using one of its cores. This issue first became apparent to me when I was trying to run Blacklight Retribution. It popped up a warning message saying that my computer does not meet the minimum requirements of have at least a dual core. And indeed the game was unplayable, with single digit fps constantly. However when i go to the performance tab of my task manager it shows 4 graphs, meaning that 4 cores must be running. Then I go the boot tab of my systems configuration, click on advanced options and underneath the "Number of Processors:" check box (which is unchecked), it shows 1 as the number of processors. My processor is an Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.60GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.6GHz.

Core 2 Intel Pentium @ 82% While Core 1 Is Only At 25%

Jan 12, 2012

So I'm on my computer playing a game and I have a CPU usage gadget by Keat and the gadget is telling me, my Core 2 is at 82% while Core one is at 25%.
aren't they supposed to carry the load equally, Or is that normal? When I have something else up besides the game I'm playing (MineCraft online) it evens out more.

My system specs are Windows vista (but updated to Windows 7 Home premium and completely updated) Pentium dual core cpu t4200 4.00 gb Ram. 64 bit

AMD Dual Core Processor Driver

Mar 3, 2009

I just bought a: AMD Athlon X2 2.2 GHz 4200+ Socket 939 89W Dual-Core Processor

and I have spent many hours trying to get 7 to detect that there is two cores in this thing and that it needs to utilize them both. But I'm not really sure if there is a driver out there that I can use... The setup I found would say its not compatible with this OS when I ran it.

Is anyone else having issues with 7 detecting their AMD dual core processors correctly? Are there some compatible drivers that I've missed?

Dell Optiplex 745 Crashes On Dual Core Only

Jan 18, 2011

I picked up a couple Dell Optiplex 745's that are almost identical. A friend of mine has the same machine that runs Windows 7 flawlessly. I, however, can only install it and run the OS when disabling one core of my Pentium D 2.8GHz (Presler) CPU. When I go into the BIOS and re-enable the 2nd core the system becomes completely unstable.

Some basics:
x86 (32-bit)- Windows Home Premium retail (Came from Dell with XP)

System close to four years old, with format and clean install of Windows 7. Machine does run OK on Windows XP with both cores enabled. Both machines seem to perform exactly the same so bad CPU or memory seems to be a longshot.

Intel T7500 Dual Core Processor Performance - Sudden FPS Drop

Feb 19, 2012

I've made a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate a few days ago and I started to encounter the following problem after 30-60 minutes. It usually happens when I'm running a computer game (any game), I experience a sudden fps drop, even though before that, on maximum quality the game was running perfectly, becomes unenjoyable, quit the game. The CPU meter gadget shows 100%, and even after I close everything, browser, windows explorer, the best I get at idle is 70-80% and if I try to open anything at all, it becomes stuck at 100% again.

So I open task manager and go processes, put them in a descending order of processor usage, and see that they nowhere near add up to 100%, even though at the bottom the task manager says CPU usage is at 100%. Physical memory is usually around 20-60%, no problems with that. If I go to Performance tab, and click on resource monitor, I experience the same thing: the actual usage is nowhere near 100%, I can't see any processes that would explain for the performance drop, in fact the highest demanding process is the resource monitor itself. The problem persists until I restart the computer, shutting down takes much longer now.

It's a HP Compaq 8510w laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Build 7600
Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 (2.2 GHZ)
Hewlett-Packard 30C5 (Intel PM965 (Cresline-PM) + ICH8M-E)
4GB memory
nVidia Quadro FX 570M [HP]
Intel 82801HB ICH8 - High Definition Audio [B1]

I've tried several suggestions:
Disabling HDAC in Device Manager (High Definition Audio Controller)
Disabling Audio Enhancements in Sound>Speaker Properties
Installing the very newest drivers, including chipset drivers
Running programs in XP compatibility mode
Disabling the gadgets

I've no reason to think I've been infected by malicious software, I can't find any suspicious processes running.

CPU Core Temperatures Really High?

Aug 5, 2011

Today I bought Windows7 and did a fresh install from WinXP. The hardware changes I made were adding my other 10k rpm raptor hd so I can run Win7 in raid0 config. I couldn't get it to work for WinXP. Everything has gone smooth with all the installation. The problem I'm experiencing is high core temps on my i7-860 quad core. When I had XP installed, I was idleing at 38-43C and running 68-74C while running games. Now I'm idleing anywhere from 42-65C and I'm hitting 95+C while running BFBC2. I didnt notice this until I first installed BFBC2 and it kept crashing on me, during loading my pc shuts down completely. P.S. I am running a stock intel cooler fan(i know....i just ordered a coolermaster from newegg). Although I'm running a stock cooler, under XP my temps were still ok..

SystemSpecs:
Gigabyte P55A-UD3 mobo
Intel i7-860@2.8ghz
4g OCZ ram1600
Asus GTX560 1GB
Xion 600watt PS
2 WD Raptor 10k rpm hd's

Dedicating One Core To Game?

Nov 19, 2011

My laptop has 4 cores, but the game I play isn't multi threaded. I want to dedicate 1 core to my game and one core to FRAPS. The only way I know how to do this is by going to each and every process in Task Manager and setting it's affinity. But that takes a while and isn't "permanently" saved... Is there a faster/simpler way to do this?

I upgraded from vista to windows 7. Its worked like a charm, but there are one problem.

I have a q6600 cpu(4 cores), and after the upgrade windows see just one core.

(In task manager(One Graph per cpu checked)/Resource Monitor)

In the Device Manager under Processors are listed 4 "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU @ 2.40GHz" device.

I reinstalled the old drivers, removed them but no luck.

Any advice?

CPU At 25% Only After Sleep Mode (Only One Core And Not The Other 3)?

Mar 7, 2012

After my computer wakes from sleep mode, Core#1 shoots up to 70-95% and the rest are normal (1-3% at idle). I have DPC latency check with no spikes. Updated several drivers. I did a clean reinstallation of windows home premium 64bit. Re did the latency checker again and updated the drivers again. Still noting. I have been up and down every forum and cannot get help for the life of me. I would love to have the computer wake up from sleep mode without these issues.Also, ran malwarebyes with noting, superantispyware with nothing so I guess I will rule out a virus. I ran process explorer (and another third party explorer) and it was the Deferred Call Procedure, or something like that.
