    i just downloaded Multi Meter (Dual Core) v1.18 and it shows like i have only
    1 core working.I have a AMD64 PC. I don't think vista 64 uses both
    processors. what should i do???

    Open Task Manager, Performance tab. Do you see 2 distinct boxes under CPU
    Usage History?

  3. You may need to install a system driver, or a BIOS update. Start with your
    mobo mfg and grab the latest BIOS for your mobo. Then check that you have
    the latest available drivers. Finally, there are also drivers on the AMD
    site. Also, just to be clear - not all AMD64 processors are dual core.

    you might consider becoming Harikrishna. They largely shun technology, and
    as a devotee, would not have to deal with such mind bending problems.

    I think this is eminently the most sensible reply to a topic that I
    have read here for a while.

    I'm running Asus NF4 motherboards with AMD 4400x2 processors. I'm
    using the drivers installed during the Vista installation without any
    problems on 2 systems. There are 2 processors listed in device manager. What
    series AMD64 processor and motherboard are you using. Have a great day.

    Vista is not the problem. Vista is only reflecting the
    information it receives from your motherboard.

    The problem is with your motherboard.

    Do you have the most current BIOS update installed?

    When your motherboard properly recognizes and reports a dual
    core CPU, then Vista will like wise recognize and report a
    dual core CPU present.

    how do you upgrade the BIOS

    Theo Guest

    What is this about? Do you have a 3200+ or do you have a 4400+?

    There is a section in your user's manual that will give you
    instructions on how to update the BIOS. The reason you need
    to read what's in the user's manual is to ensure you use the
    correct updating program and correct procedure. If you
    don't have a manual, then download the .PDF file from the
    Asus web site and refer to it.

    The 3200+ is not dual-core (I'm pretty sure?).
    The lowest dual-core CPU is the 3800+.

    Which specific Athlon -- the 3200 could well be a 754 chip. Yes it is
    an Athlon 64, but none of the 754 series are dual core.

    For that matter with the 939 series, AMD basically is pushing folks
    away from dual core there -- they had them last year -- and you can
    still track them down, but the only dual core 939's you can get readily
    are Opteron's -- designed for server environments -- nice for
    workstation overclocking *IF* you have the power supply and cooling for
