I have searched but I can't find a program which will tell me if all 4 cores are working.
Been having slowdown problems. Intel utility confirms 4 cores but I clcked on something the other day and it came up with a screen asking me how many cores I wanted to use but it only had Core 1 and Core 2 to choose. When I use Task Manager abd go to performamce there are only 2 windows for CPU usage history should there not be 4 if all the cores are running. Could the slowdown be caused because only 2 work. In devise manager 4 show and there are no marks against any of them.
you can get programes that show the cores worklng, im using asus ai suite that shows currently one core is at at 15 percent and the other is at 5 percent. im sure there is some similar software for you to use.
