    Duo Core only showing one processor active
    so I have Quad-Core Intel Xeon 2.26 Ghz 2 processor 8 cores 6 GB RAM tower that a friend of mine has leant me while he fixes my older PowerPC tower - unfortunately he bailed off to miami this morning to go to the Winter Music Conference, and is kind've out of touch for a week.
    Problem is I looked on his activity monitor & happen to notice theres only one processor showing up on the bottom, no clue whats up with that, and don't have much experience with dual processors. any help would be much appreciated. and hoping its an easy fix.
    thanks again

    Do not mess with it it ain't yours! It is quite normal for only CPU A to be showing activity on the CPU Usage in Activity Monitor.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Ditto
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
