Windows 7: L2 Cache Problem

L2 Cache Problem

After installing Win 7 Ultimate I ran PC Pitstop evaluation tool. It reports that my L2 Cache may be disabled and instructs me to enable it in my BIOS. Everything looks correct in the BIOS. Am using Intel Core Duo. Everything runs very fast and perfectly. Except for Mozilla icons.

Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a a easy test to check on my L2 cache functionality?

Thanks.

Don't believe everything that PC Pitstop is telling you....

Try CPUID to check your L2 cache.

Thanks, checked it and the L2 shows 2048 Kbs. Seems high for cache. Is 2 Mb normal? I hope my memory (2048 Mbs-2 Gig's) isn't acting as the L2. Just a coincidence?

Thanks in advance for you response.
