Intel i3 330M 2.3MHz Cores Issues

Has anyone experienced this result of a CPU test:

Misconfigured CPU. Enable all CPU cores in the system BIOS.

BIOS and all drivers are up to date on this Lenovo T410i laptop using Windows7 Pro 32 w/4GB RAM.

I'll take a stab...

One idea:
type winlogo+run
msconfig
boot
select the maximum number of cores.

Second idea:
enable cores from bios

What utility are you running?

I've tried the BIOS route to no avail. It recognizes 2 cores.

Lenovo's ThinkVantage utility knows there are 2 cores but instructs me to enable all (both?) cores in the BIOS.

I've tried Windows msconfig. It only offers 1 cpu. (No mention of cores.) No more than1.

Thanks for your interest and help.

Just for the heck of it, flash your bios to version 1.32. September 2010.

Flashing the BIOS to 1.32 was done several days ago, thanks.

I did install 2GB of the appropriate RAM in the slot available making a total of 4GB (about 3GB available to system)

Have you tried another utility to verify?

I've been using Lenovo's ThinkVantage utility aka PC Doctor. I am unaware of another utility for this issue but I'd like to hear your suggestion.

Again, thanks for the interest and help.

Just a stab in the dark here. Did the problem begin before or after flashing the BIOS?
