I have an M2n-SLI Deluxe motherboard w/ AMD 64 X2 +6000 processors. I updated my bios from the suggestions of ASUS and AMD technical, all went fine except when I run my "Ableton Live" recording program, in the preferences tab, there is an option for "Support Dual Core Processors", and it is greyed out. I can not change the option to dual core. I contacted "Ableton Tech Support", and they sent me a tool to run so I could send results back to them, and they replied, "this says that you are using a processor with only one core. That is the reason why Live doesn't offer the CPU Multicore option - There are no multiple cores.
A google search revealed that the Athlon 64 X2 IS a multicore processor. Maybe your Bios settings are somehow wrong or the operating system doesn't allow multiple processors." So how do I tell if I am using dual core? I have checked bios and it shows dual core, and in system properties, I show both processors. Help before warranty runs out!!! lol
Yours is definitely running only one of the cores. Are you certain you have the cpu you think you have? Right click on My Computer and select Properties and it should tell you what cpu you have.
and go one farther and go into device manager and check processor ,if 2 show in list you have 2 ,i think ,read 2 different definitions ,one say duel core and one said it meant hyper threading was set !
Sorry to be confusing, but if it says, "use one graph per CPU', then what I get out of it is that per CPU in this case two, there should be two graphs. I could be wrong. I just hate to send my mother board off and have to be without it for so long, I use it in my business. That's why I was wondering if there was a for sure way to find out because I am confused on device manager showing two, and the task manager showing two on the bar but only showing one graph. To me I am not convinced either way. I still do not know.
There is not an option to choose one or two graphs. Just has the one, "show one graph per CPU", and it is selected. You think I got a bad one? Also when i CLICK ON EITHER LINE OF CPU USAGE, IT JUST ENLARGES, IT WONT SEPERATE.
