    Task Manager shows only 2 cores


    Hello!I saw that in Task Manager it shows me that my CPU has got only 2 cores but it's quad core. I am just curious to see why this is happening. I don't have any problems for now. My CPU is an AMD FX 4100.

  2. WIndows 10 AMD A10 7850K only showing 2 cores in task manager problem

    I have an AMD A10 7850K APU installed and it seems to be running Windows 10 ok but, in the task manager, it only shows 2 cores. The processor has 4 cpu cores. Why is it showing only 2 cores? Any replies will be welcome, thank you.

    Windows 10 Task Manager only showing half my cores.

    Hi Jim, I'm Graeme, an independent adviser here to help.

    Try these steps, which may make Task Manager show the correct amount of cores:

    - Click Start and search for msconfig.

    - Select System Configuration.

    - In the Boot tab, click on Advanced Options.

    - You should see an option to set the number of cores. Change this to the correct amount, click OK then reboot.

    Hopefully Task Manager should show the correct number now. Please let me know if you need further support! Thanks!

    Task Manager shows only 2 cores

    FX-8370 – Win Task Manager shows 4 p. cores and 8 l. cores

    Windows Task Manager show me that AMD FX-8370 runs with 4 p. cores and 8 l. cores. I thought that it should run on 8 p. cores but another diagnostics shows just 8 cores.

    What is the problem?
