    Hi there,

    I have another little problem, my AMD 6000+ dual core 3.2ghz is recognized in the devicemanager under processors (2 processors present) yet when I want to enable the 2nd processor in MSconfig under the boot tab it only gives me the option of enabling 1 [​IMG]

    Please help!

    I would have thought it is referring to the core that is off as the other must be on for you to get that far, just enable it and see, You have nothing to lose.
