Win7-64, showing only 1 processor

Using an i7-920 with 6g of Corsair RAM. However, my task manager only shows a single processor! Where would I begin to find the problem? Thanks.

Task Manager has 6 tabs.

On which tab are you seeing only 1 processor?

It was under the Performance tab. However, I found the problem - everything is fine now. Apparently I had set a diagnostic value in the initial page of msconfig. 'Glad that's all it was!
