Yep, that would do it! I was leaning toward bios so much I forgot about that in Windows itself! Glad it working for you now!

Yeah, great you found out !

First I thought about the BIOS, then about hardware incompatibility (but then again it's i7, so that couldn't be really), then I thought the CPU might be faulty.

I heard about it before where you can set the number of cores within the OS.
There was a rumor existing that the system might boot up too slow if this setting was wrong. But I have been told that was bull****.
Maybe that's why I forgot about it.

I find it interesting that we users are able to modify how many cores are beeing employed.
Now, since you found out, it makes perfectly sense that any software monitoring program would not "see" all the cores if any of them had been "switched off" this way.

Thanks for letting us know.


PS: well, would you say there's a difference in bootup time at all ?
