Windows 7: Intel i3 330M 2.3MHz Cores Issues

14 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Pro

Trouble was evident before and after flashing the BIOS.

This all began when, in response to the s-l-o-w performance since getting this refurb, Lenovo first recommended a full system test by their installed ThinkVantage utility. The CPU test returned the "enable all CPU cores in the BIOS" message. The BIOS sees 2 cores but only 1 is/can be enabled.

I wonder if the CPU might be faulty. I'd wait on a second opinion before jumping to that conclusion though. Hopefully someone that knows a little more about hardware than I do will be by shortly.

Have you tried removing the RAM and trying it again?
