2 processors showing up when theres only 1 onboard

Question: 2 processors showing up when theres only 1 onboard

Hi,I have an odd problem. I run a P4 3.2 GHz computer. It's not multi-cpu, but on the device manager, it shows that I have two P4 processors. Also on the My Computer Properties tab, it shows that I have two CPU's... one 3.20 GHz and the other changes from time to time. The last time I checked, it said 3.19 GHz, before that it said 2.80 GHz. I'm not sure if this is related, but when I run SETI on boinc(which is set to run 100% of available procesor cap) it only runs on 50% and the rest is taken by the System Idle Process. Also, the on the Task Manager screen, when I right click on a service/program, I have the option to set the processor affinity, to either CPU 0 or CPU 1.So my computer is acting like it has two cpu's, where it has only one. This started only yesterday(as far as I know).My question is, is this some kind of misconfiguration(although i did not change any system settings), a virus, etc , and how to fix it.Thanks in advance for any help.

Preferred Solution: 2 processors showing up when theres only 1 onboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: 2 processors showing up when theres only 1 onboard

Could you post a screen shot??? What kind of virus protection are you using??? This may very well be a virus, but I have yet to see anything like that.

I'm setting up a pentium 166 MHz box with FreeBSD to act as a home router. I'm wondering which network cards have the onboard processors? I would like to install network cards that have onboard processors to reduce CPU load.

Thanks in advance for any help
 

Answer:Which NICs have onboard processors?

intel and 3com NIC's should work for you. Usually anything over $30, and not the bargain d-link/netgear/linsys/Realtek cards.

I buy my intel nic's from newegg for around $30 i think.

Hello

I dunno if it is a problem i have or maybe it good but when i go to device manager or type dxdiag or anything else that will show you your computer spec, it will show me that i have two processors running while i have only one. It tellse me that i have two pentiume 4 3.0ghz cpu and in device manager it actualy shows both of them , but the reality is i have only one and my board doesnt even support all the dual technolagy. So my question is: Is it bad for my computer to think that i have two CPU's and also how ca i get rid of that problem?

Thank You

Hello to all,
I hope this is a good place to post this. Today I upgraded my X2 processor with a AMD Phenom-II X4 965. Put it in, booted, went to bios and optimized default setting and saved. Reran the system performance and it increased, but noted that the cpu gadget only showed two cores. Downloaded CPU-Z and it only shows two cores. Can anyone point me in the direction of getting this issue solved?? Thanks for any assistance.

Answer:Phenom II only showing 2 processors - HELP

What does it show where I have it circled?
(Start>run>msconfig - Boot, then advanced options.
If it shows 2, and the box is checked, uncheck it, and hit "ok". ( this is assuming there is not an option to choose "4" there. If there is, change it to 4, leave it checked and restart.)
Restart, check again to see if it reset and recognized the 4 cores.

Note: I have only used CPU-Z with a 2 core system, never a 4 core. I wouldn't think it would be any different, but can't be positive.

I don't know what kind of processor you have, but perhaps you simply have an Pentium 4 with hyperthreading technologie. That means you have one physical and one simulated processor.

I just purchased 4 X1 Carbon i7's and noticed that Device Manager (Windows 7 64 bit) is showing only 4 processors instead of 8.  My HP desktops, which are also i7's, show 8 Processors (4 physical cores, 4 hyperthreaded cores).  The X1 bios shows hyperthreading is enabled and the msconfig file is not limiting the number of cores.  Any idea how to re-enable the missing processors?

Hi.
Earlier today I downloaded a driver-updating software in hopes of getting my almost-dead dvd-drive to work. Well, the program found out that my motherboard drivers were outdated and updated them. (I'm using a M4N68T-M V2 mobo) After the update I noticed that I couldnt connect to Internet and found out that my network adapter wasnt even showing up in device manager because the awesome software had downloaded drivers for a different motherboard model. So I uninstalled the faulty nForce chipset drivers and installed the correct ones from the cd that came with the motherboard. No change. So now I basically have no access to the Internet except with my iPhone (with which I'm typing this message) and have no idea why the network card isnt showing up anywhere. In device management there are no components with missing drivers and in bios the onboard network card is enabled. So does anyone have any idea whats the problem?
I'm running a winxp 32-bit with an Asus M4N68T-M V2 with NVIDIA nForce 630a chipset.

You need to flash your BIOs. Download the file HERE for the CD-Rom .iso. Burn this to a CD, and then reboot your computer with the optical drive as first boot device. You do not want to flash from within Windows, that oftentimes causes problems.

I've spent the last 2 days including today working on and searching for solutions to this problem and no matter what I do I get no where.

First off I have a Gateway GT5676 that I just got a few months back and it came with Vista 64 bit Home Premium edition. I recently had to reinstall and kept it as the 64bit because it was kinda recommended during the install lol. Now I'm not sure if it was there before I reinstalled but under my network connections all it shows is that NVidia Controller thing and nothing else. I've tried getting drivers from the gateway site, which for some reason install in Japanese or Chinese whatever which is weird. I am able to find different slightly newer drivers from the Marvel site (it's marvel onboard network) and that is in English but I cannot install it because it says I have to uninstall the one I have first. I cannot see my network adapter so how the hell can I do that? My internet WORKS, all networking stuff seems to work, except I'm trying to hook up a tunnel program like XBconnect and/or Xlink. So I can play a certain game with someone else because we need updates off and that kicks us off Live. The problem is I cannot select my network adapter so that would be the reason they aren't working correct? Any ideas why this is or am I just stuck with what I got unless I install 32bit or XP?

Answer:OnBoard Network Adapter Not Showing in Device Manager? Vista64 bit

Hi BlackRob183 and welcome to MGs.
First off I think you should uninstall the cards you added from device manager and then physically remove them. Then try accessing your BIOS, should be a specific key at boot screen to enter, and once there disabling your on-board adapter, restart, access BIOS again and re-enable adapter.
See if that gets the adapter back into device manager.

Have you contacted Gateway support? Only a few months old, it should still be under warranty. If there happens to be a hardware fault in the machine, Gateway should have a fix or information for it. Make them support your product if needed

I was aghast for reinstallations of Windows 8 because of reasons unknown which ran operating system into trouble.
Now I know why this happened, because I selected maximum number of processors shown in 'Msconfig', which really doesn't exists ('Msconfig' showed 4 processors for Intel Core i3210).
From next start Windows 8 ran into trouble and within a day or two of using this desktop stopped responding, happened for all operating systems where I selected maximum number of processors shown in 'Msconfig'.
Therefore do not select maximum number of processors from 'Msconfig'.

Why the strangeqe question?

you see I have a Dell XPS 15z laptop with a core i7 processor, 8 Giga RAM running Windows 7 Premium and I also have an HP desktop with a core two duo processor, 3 Gigs of ram running Windows 7 Professional but surprizingly the desktop runs faster than the laptop when I give them both tthe same task on Photoshop CS6 ( a processor heavy application). I feel that I have been cheated into buying the Dell laptop which at the time of purchase was expensive in the is country.

Answer:Are there any new processors that are faster than Core I7 processors

Does it use 100% cpu for a long time? (so cpu is the bottleneck)
Is it a multithreaded application, so are tasks split in many subtasks and use different cores?

QuoteIT show zero bytes in bios and not shown in windows explorer,I see it in Device manager,wit zero space.The Bios recognizing the drive is the lowest level of recognition. If not recognized at this level its usually a jumper setting, cable issue, or Bios needs to be flashed with a newer version.Is this hard drive an IDE (PATA) drive or a newer SATA drive for starters?If it is a IDE (PATA) drive it could be jumper set wrong, (Master(MA), Slave(SL), Cable Select(CS))If its a SATA drive I'd try a different SATA cable with it to rule that out.*I wouldnt jump into flashing your Bios with an update unless you find information supporting a known issue with the version you are running and hard drives. A bad flash can kill certain motherboards that dont have Bios protection that can revert back on wrong or failed flashes.

Evening!

Have recently formatted my laptop and re installed Windows on my normal HDD because i have a small SSD since formatting my SSD and deleting and renewing the old partition, in windows explorer and disk management i can no longer see my SSD. I can see my SSD in Bios and in the Intel Rapid storage technology app, but cannot understand why i cannot use my SSD, Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Perry

Answer:SSD not showing in Disk Management, but showing on Intel Rapid Storage

Could we get some more information?

Does this laptop have 2 hard drive bays? Did it always have 2 hard drives?
What does "deleting and renewing the old partition" mean?

What I suspect is that the SSD has a partition that is still marked ACTIVE. Windows will boot from one Active partition and ignore the other. So if the SSD has just one partition that is marked active then the whole drive would be ignored.

If you deleted the partition in Disk Management or some 3rd party program then that would have taken care of the Active flag on that partition. But if you just deleted the contents of the partition that would have left the flag.

Let us know what you did.

EDIT: I should add: any partition that contained an operating system will have the active flag. This is not something you would have had to do yourself.

I have just built a new computer, using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, however, I've noticed when I open Windows explorer, 3 out of 4 times it will continuously search for drives when opening up explorer and not show any drives that are installed. I've tried reformatting, using different hard drives, but the problem persists no matter what I do. I've reinstalled Windows 7 with only a single drive plugged in, tried different SATA ports, but this problem keeps coming back. The only thing I can think of is that the Windows 7 install disk is corrupted and not installing properly.

I've also noticed that once it starts searching like this, the icons wont display in any folder, although the file names will. Likewise, when trying to sort files by date, type, etc, they will not sort.

When this happens, I can easily type in C:\ to get to the drive without problem to access the drive but above problems with icons not showing, sorting, etc still is a problem.

Has anyone had this problem? Know of a way to fix this? I'm not looking forward to having to reformat again as I don't have the time to sit through and reinstall everything again after.

I am trying to remove empty folders using Remove Empty Directories. I know of a few that are empty, and just ran a test to see if RED would detect they were empty. Well, to my surprise, I am finding that RED shows 1 (or more) file in these folders (a JPG at 0.00 MB), but it's not showing up in the folder. Is there any way I can have these show up in folders so I can search for all JPG's and delete them? Example:


I do have "Show hidden files, folders and drives" checked under folder options as well.

Answer:File not showing up in folder,but showing up in Remove Empty Directori

Hi,

You could try running JPG Cleaner v2.6

I use this software on a regular basis. I'd suggest limiting it's use to only one problem folder on your machine as a test run.

Run the program with admin rights then from the GUI choose Add Folder then browse to your test folder. Additionally choose the option to delete Unknown Files and also untick the option to Create Backup Files.

Then choose Start and when the cleanup is completed there is an option to save a log file. Save the log file somewhere and have a look at it to view the results.

Additionally you could run the program again choosing the Delete Corrupt Files option.

If you're happy with the results - go ahead and add the other remaining folders or directories to be cleaned.

I've never encountered any problems using this software but as always before running any sort of cleaning product it's best to at least create a system restore point to fall back on and ideally have a system image backup handy.

Hi guys, I am fairly new to this website and would absolutely LOVE if someone could help me figure out this problem.

I have an Alienware Windows 7 M17 laptop (I know, everyone hates alienwares but I don't have enough time to build my own)
The laptop has a build in SoundBlaster Recon3Di, with an intel display audio. This problem just started happening yesterday before I went to work, and when I came back the headphones wouldn't work. I thought the headphones were the problem so I tried testing them on two different computers and they weren't working.

I went to get some new ones, and tried plugging them in and they didn't pick up either.The jacks do show that they pick up when the headphones are plugged in, just no sound will play. Speakers work perfectly fine but I listen to music all the time and need to have headphones that work. The laptop is fairly new so I know it's not a problem that persists with that..

I have a game in my pen drive that is splits second, my friend had given this pen drive to me, but windows explorer is showing that this drive is empty, i have checked it if it is hidden but still it's not showing after i had changed settings for hidden files, and i had checked the drive properties, it is showing that 3.07 GB free of 7.44 GB, please help me...

Answer:File folder is not showing in my pen drive, showing it is empty.

Hi,

The problem could be because all the data that was present inside the pen drive now have become system files by the virus. This is the reason why they are not visible even with the option “Show Hidden files and folders”.
To remove the problem this is what you need to do.
1. Go to Folder Options -> View tab
2. Make sure that your Show Hidden files and folders option is enabled.
3. Uncheck the option that reads “Hide protected operating system files (recommended)”

Now when you see your pen drive, you will find that your data is present there but in hidden form. There are 2 ways to unhide the data, either right click and uncheck the Hidden box or type in the following command in the command prompt
attrib filename –h –r –s
where filename is the complete location of the file.

Let me know if it solved your problem.

I was updating my graphics driver and had to restart the pc. When it started booting back up it took like 10 minutes to get to the windows login screen. Then I noticed that some of my program icons were missing. So when trying to figure out why I noticed my harddrive was missing in explorer. When I go to Disk Management this is what I see http://prntscr.com/g3b3em. Disk 1 is a mechanical drive that was working fine before updating my graphics driver. Right Clicking on it gives me these options ( Convert To Basic Disk, Reactivate, Offline) I tried to reactivate but nothing happens.

Anyone got any ideas how to fix this error or repair the drive? I can't repair it with chkdsk cause the volume isn't showing up for it.

This is what the properties of the drive says if it helps http://prntscr.com/g3b6h4

Answer:Hard Drive Showing Error And Not Showing Up In Explorer

Hi. For starters, that first partition (D) shouldn't have a letter at all. It's a system, boot partition and with a letter to it some programs or even you can mistakenly use it.
Disk 1 does have a problem but drivers are installed to C: partition and nowhere else (part of the system) so it's not probable that driver is the cause of it obliviously failing. If you know it's make and model you could download and use a program for it's manufacturer to check it: One from here: Download Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Tools Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks or from it's manufacturer's site. Until you know it's real physical shape you will not be able to troubleshoot it properly.

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:



It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

Answer:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

I was updating my graphics driver and had to restart the pc. When it started booting back up it took like 10 minutes to get to the windows login screen. Then I noticed that some of my program icons were missing. So when trying to figure out why I noticed my harddrive was missing in explorer. When I go to Disk Management this is what I see http://prntscr.com/g3b3em. Disk 1 is a mechanical drive that was working fine before updating my graphics driver. Right Clicking on it gives me these options ( Convert To Basic Disk, Reactivate, Offline) I tried to reactivate but nothing happens.

Anyone got any ideas how to fix this error or repair the drive? I can't repair it with chkdsk cause the volume isn't showing up for it.

This is what the properties of the drive says if it helps http://prntscr.com/g3b6h4

I am running the following system on a Dell Inspiron:
Vista Home Premium 64bitPentium Dual-Core 2.7ghz4.0gb RAM500 GB HD
My HD says it is 99% full. However, I have read all of the posts here for assistance, used disk clean-up, culled unwanted programs/files etc. and the size continues to grow.

I ran WinDirStat and it shows that only approx. 133gb is being used -- which is far more realistic.

I have ran a full system virus scan with Bitdefender.

What else can be the problem?

Thanks for your quick attention. I appreciate your help.

Answer:500GB HD showing 99%full - WinDirStat showing 133GB used?

So I just stuck a 1TB SATA HD in my computer, and it's not showing up when I open up My Computer. I've re-started about half a dozen times. I went into the BIOS, and the BIOS sees it. I have very little exerpeience with SATA so maybe I'm just doing something stupid. FWIW, my main HD is on SATA 1 and the new HD is on SATA 3. PLZ HALP!! Thanks

Answer:New SATA HD not showing up in computer; showing up in BIOS

what's happening is the drive hasn't been formatted so it's not showing up in windows because there isn't really anything there. You have to go to disk management and format the drive.

Okay so this is the second time I have come across this issue. The first time I ran deep virus and malware scans to no avail, ran CCleaner and updated all drivers as well as checking startup items and finding nothing unusual. I ended off having to re-install windows and this fixed this issue for a couple of months but its now returned and I have no idea whats causing it, it slows my PC down horribly making gaming and general use basically impossible.

I have tried updating drivers, virus and malware scans as well as running advanced systemcare again with no result. It goes without saying that the random usage doesn't add up on task manager, everything at idle will add up to about 15% which is what realtemp reports however displays 100% usage at the top. Its also worth noting that the temps get no higher than 35 degrees celcius.

My current build:
i5-6500
Gigabyte RX480 Gaming 4G
16GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance LED 2666MHz
Gigabyte H110M-S2H

If this is posted in the wrong forum I really do apologize, I couldn't quite find one it fit into any better than this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:Windows 10 CPU usage showing 100%, RealTemp only showing ~15%

Hi DoctorFlash.

You may wish to use a tool like Process Explorer, part of sysinternals to get a better view of what is happening.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...rocessexplorer

I learned from @Borg386 you can also do some virus checking within tool, which I haven't done myself. You can google this to determine if right for you.

I am buying a laptop and have pretty much decided on everything i want, however the processor stage is confusing me. I have always bought computers in the past based on their GHz (my current desktop is 3.2 GHz, and i understand how that compares to others).

As i was browsing the Dell gaming notebooks, the Duo Core processors were only clocked up to about 2.16GHz. A similarly specced laptop with a Pentium 4 HT 3.2GHz processor seemed relatively similar in price. Does the duel core processor actually have 1GHz less power. The AMD Turion from Alienware was only 2.4Ghz. Does this mean it has .8Ghz less power?

I want to buy a computer with a processor equivalent or better to my Pentium 4 HT at 3.2GHz, and i don't care about weight or power. I don't paticularly like the laptops i have seen so far with the Pentium 4 chips because i am not getting the 512mb 7900 NVidia i want. Help?
 

Answer:Help with Processors

GHZ haven't meant much for a while and now they mean Nothing!

The Core Duo is likely better then the P4 3.2, depending on the exact model, but it should be a better choice.

The Turion will be just as good or even better then the Core Duo.

will depend on the program you are using, some are wrote to take advantage of all those cores, some aren't.

on the normal startup the laptop will run for about 5 minutes before it goes black. on safe mode startup it has not gone black even after being on for hours.

my question is should there be 2 processors listed? and if not does it matter which one i uninstall.
thank you
whirl
 

Answer:2 processors

If there are two cores, it should be listed twice in Device Manager. Don't mess with that.

This sounds like a software issue. First, I would download the latest software/drivers, but do not install the package. After that, completely uninstall all software with RevoUninstaller. Then uninstall the GPU driver in Device Manager.

Reboot, and then install the latest drivers/software which you downloaded. Let us know how it works out.

Look inside your case. If you don't see two CPU cooling systems, you have one physical processor. You propably have one dual-core processor, and you're propably taking full advantage of the both cores.

My computer has been acting real slow, like 10-30 FPS on games I used to get steady 60 on. All this happened after I reformatted. I checked the device manager, because it claims to have recovered from a serious error involving hardware drivers. It claims that I have a multi-processor PC, and I have 2 Intel Pentium 4 CPUs onboard (3.00 GHZ), and I know for sure this is not true. Could this be the cause for slow games? If so, how do I fix it? Also, my games won't run now, because they claim that I don't have a compatible sound card. I'm not even sure where to get all the drivers I need, if thats the problem.

Could someone please just list the order of speed / spec after the 1.3. I see there are a number of ones 333, 2200 etc. I'm just a bit confused which is which.

Thanks

Hi,

Ive never quite understood all the small things about processors and one thing that ive come across whislt looking at the new intel ones is the 2,3,4,6 and 8 MB at the end.

For example ive seen an i3 processor that was 2.26Ghz 3MB, and a i5 2.40Ghz 4MB.

The one that confused me the most is that i saw an i7 2.6Ghz 3MB and a i7 1.8Ghz 8MB, i thnk the 1.8 was more expensive!

Can someone explain this to me

Thanks

Matt
 

Answer:i3, i5 and i7 processors

The "mb" specification next to each of these processors is the amount of on board cache included with the processor.

Question: Processors

Whats better to use a mobo with dual processors or just one?
 

Answer:Processors

G'day bonesaw2009, what were you intending doing with it and what kind of operating system were you intending to use and how well off financially are you?
If it is not a server application and you are talking common operational kind of stuff like desktop or common gaming kind of use using common windows kinds of programs you would probably be better off with a simple single processor setup.
Cheers. qldit.

Question: 7 ghz processors

Hey every one,

I heard from some one that he heard or read some where that usually in the techonolgy world processor speeds double every 18 months. He said that they well double to a 7ghz processor! He didn't know when they will double the speed he was just passing on the information to me. You know how powerful a processor like that would be like? You could pretty much run any program and game maxed out. (with other high-end hardware.)

Well, I've been looking into get a 3.0 ghz or higher processor and as we all know when some thing bigger and better comes out the ones down below get there prices lowered.

Does any one know any thing on this? What are your thoughts on it?

Question: psu and processors

i have a intel 440bx mb and 45o mhx pentium, can i use the power supply for this motherboard to power a pentium 4 1.8ghz, msi 845pe max2 set up. its 250 watt psu.cheers

Answer:psu and processors

For the sake of a new PSU it is not worth the risk of an unstable system or fortunately less likely a burn out, which carries a very slight though real risk of blowing lots of expensive bits in your box.
