Re: win xp didnt detect new processor

Go into device manager and uninstal "acpi multiprocessor" (in computer tab) and reboot and cpu should be detected properly.

Hope that sorts it for you? :)

Hi i purchased amd athlon x3 450 and only one core is showed in task manager,performance tab


If your system is running XP then there is a file from Microsoft that you can download that may fix the problem. Remember once you have installed the fix you have to restart the computer for any changes to take effect.
Click on the link below for the download.

If your sysem is not XP and you are using Vista or Win 7 then don't download this fix as it will not work. Instead right click on Computer and select Properties from the sub menu. When the properties window comes up have a look at the processor under System and see if it shows how many cores the processor is currently showing.

Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck.

AMD Athon XP 2600 dropped speed

Some times when a computer shuts down unexspectedly like that it will reset itself back to its defaults in bios thinking there was a problem. Go in there and check your cpu settings. The fsb should be set to 266 mhz. Make sure it didnt default back to 133 mhz.

And FYI the 2600 is acutally a 2.13 gig cpu not a 2.6 gig..
