CPU-Z is just a reporting tool isn't it?

What were you expecting it to do?

Nice gadget!

  Why wont it work 12:06 22 Apr 2007

that's because there is only one processor package. If you look next to it, it will say it has 2 cores, ie 2 cores to processor #1. You would only get processor #1 and processor #2 if you have more than one processor package (such as in a workstation or server). Nothing's wrong, so don't worry. It's the same with mine

Right click on taskbar and choose windows task manager- click on performance tab - view - CPU history and tick show one graph per CPU you will then see both cores I have the same processor and it works for me.
