Make sure that the motherboard of the computer meets all the requirements for enabling additional cores, and remember that the chosen procedure may lead to malfunction of the system.
Don't forget to reboot the computer system after the operation of unlocking additional cores and test it for functionality.
For Asus: - Southbridge AMD SB750 and 710 click on the Advanced tab and select CPU Configuration, select the option Enabled in the line Advanced Clock Calibration and repeat the same action in the box that appears Unleashing Mode;- nVidia nVidia - go to the Advanced tab and use the Configurarion JumperFree section, mark the checkbox in box NVIDIA Core Callibration to perform the desired action;- a motherboard that supports the Asus Core Unlocker - go to the Advanced tab and use the Activation CPU Core with Asus Core Unlocker.
For MSI:- Southbridge AMD SB750 and 710 open the Cell Menu and apply the flags on the field Advanced Clock Calibration, repeat the same action in the line Unlock CPU Core;- chipset nVidia - expand Cell Menu and navigate to the NVIDIA Core Calibration;- a motherboard that supports MSI's Unlock CPU Core - unlock Cell Menu and select Unlock CPU Core.
For AsRock:- Southbridge AMD SB750 and 710 click on the Advanced tab and specify the command Advanced Clock Calibration (possible options: open, menu OS Tweaker and select the same command), the L3 cache is managed in the section L3 Cache Allocation;- chipset nVidia enabled NCC - go to the Advanced tab and select NVIDIA Core Callibration, make the inclusion of additional poison in the row Active Core Setup; the motherboard that supports UCC open menu OS Tweaker and go to ASRock UCC, include additional in - line CPU Active Core Control.
Advice 2: How to enable second core XP
The second processor core is usually enabled by default in Windows XP, but some programs require it to disable to operate correctly. After that, it may be difficult to return to the original settings.
You will need
- - optimization program.
Make sure that the second core of the processor is disabled. To do this, open Windows task Manager by pressing Alt+Ctrl+Delete or Ctrl+Shift+Esc then navigate to system performance. Notice how many parts is divided the download box CPU, if two, both cores are turned on and functioning at the proper level.
In the case where there is only one - two in the operating system Windows XP, download and install an optimization program that configures the operation of the processor. After installation go to manage your computer's hardware and activate both cores of the processor. Mandatory, restart the computer, even if not required by the optimization program, do not forget to save the changes.
To test the operation of both cores on the machine turn it on and run any game or program's system requirements which suggest that you have a dual core processor. Run task Manager and in the view tab of system performance, review the workload of both elements. It may be different for them because the load is not always distributed equally.
Turn on the second core of the CPU using driver rollback motherboard installed in your computer. To prepare a driver for installation, best updated version. Reinstall the software, then again restart the computer.
Check the operation of both cores in device Manager. This sequence works in very rare cases. You can also try a system restore from an earlier condition, but in this case, will be cancelled and the rest of the changes over a period of time.
Less likely to make changes to the operation of the processor.
