How Many CPUs Listed in BIOS for Dual Core CPU?

#1 Post by ParatoOptimal » Sun Oct 31, 2010 10:15 pm

My 3000 N100 is dual core. Shouldn't it show 2 CPUs in the BIOS?
It lists only one.
Thanks

No, one is correct. You only have one CPU. The CPU happens to have two cores, but it is still just a single CPU.

Windows Device Manager will show two, though.
