Having problems with your Intel Computer Processors ?

Only 1 processor is visible in hardware manager

\015 Ok here's my problem my pc got it's memory wiped due to a discharge so I send it off to a technician to get reformatted. now when my pc gets back I started updating my drivers and by chance I noticed that my core2 duo processor is only showing one (1) processor but when I download a diagnostic tool from Intel it says I have 2 cores but when I run other programs that can detect my CPU such as maintenance software it only says I have. I've also noticed slightly lowered processing speeds and some slow downs when I use my pc for some gaming. I'm not that well acquainted with pc hardware and am only familiar with them but I'm not really confident in taking them apart, I'm also ok when it comes to software but nothing too advanced..\015\012\015\012so my questions are \015\012*is it possible to remove "cores" from a multi core processor? \015\012*does my problem stem from another source?\015\012* or do I need to download drivers for my CPU?\015\012\015\012any help is greatly appreciated\015

Answers :

Where did you see that it only shows one processor?
Hit the delete key while booting up. You can see from the Bios EXACTLY what the CPU is doing. Did the tech install different memory, or make any hardware changes, that could make your system seem slower?
Another thing you can do is hit the windows key on the keyboard and press the 'break' key in the upper left. this should open up a system properties dialog... From there
\015\012click the hardware tab and scroll for device manager... click that and look for any hardware with a question mark after it or an explanation mark... ? means no driver and ! means device conflict and/or incorrectly installed driver.
Hope this helps and gets you back up to full speed.
