    I did a check today on my computer because its been running slower than I thought it would when I bought it. When I ran the test it said I have 1 core working, and that the processor is at 2.36 GHz, not the 2.66 it should be at. I don't know why only 1 of the cores is working, so I was hoping one of u tech guys out there might know... Can anyone help? :confused:

    Sure!

    Can you give specifics on your computer such as make and model # and your OS?
    (if custom built; motherboard model and model#, operating system, memory amount, BIOS settings if applicable..etc)

    Can you elaborate on what kind of "test" you ran on your computer? (software name?)
