How to run your PC with multiple Cores (dual core or better)
This is basic information, so if you are a tech guru, or even a novice you probably already know this.
My PC was set to a single core when I got it. I have a dual Core Processor.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
Enabling both cores( or 3, or all 4) can greatly improve system performance since now, you are working with more cores!
How do i do it??
Its easy! (if you want pictures let me know and i'll add them later)
1. Click Start 2. Click Run 3. Type "msconfig" (dont add the " ") 4. Click the Boot tab 5. Click "Advanced options..." 6. Check the box that says "Number of processors" 7. Select your processes in the drop down box (1-4 depending on your processor)
Single Core (1)
Dual Core (2)
Triple Core (forgot the real name) (3)
Quad Core (4)
Or if your a beast, you might have 8 cores. Yes, it exists.
Hope this helped!
