A8N-Sli Prem, AMD 4200+ & Win XP SP2?
I built a new computer system using an existing Win XP Pro SP2 operating
system (IDE hard drive) -- going from an AMD 2200+ on an Asus A7V333, to
a 4200+ X2 on an A8N-SLI Premium MB (bios 1008). I made sure the generic
VGA drivers were being used along with the basic primary/secondary IDE
setup when starting for the first time (been down that road <G>). When I
booted Windows, it loaded all the drivers it needed and all was good.
The problem is I can't tell if the dual core is recognized or not.
Under device manager it shows 2 processors (which is good). However,
using CPU-Z it only sees one core. The processor selector is grayed out
and only shows processor 0, core 0. There are other clues that only one
processor is being seen. Under "admin tools/performance/system monitor/%
processor time" there is only one graph shown. However, using TaskMgr's
performance tab the CPU usage graph has a red and green line.
How do I check to make sure both cores are seen/working correctly?

... The part isn't complex, but I'm hoping I can design a part without huge masses of plastic between the finger grips, and I would prefer not to have the separations between grips be as narrow as ribs. ... Modeling a solid core and automating movement and interference checking would be useful, but probably a little more tedious, although you could reuse the macro for the next time this problem comes up. ...
