Default my dualcore isnt working

I just downgraded to xp, though its more of an upgrade imo... I reinstalled all my drivers and everything looks fine except I dont think one of my processors is working. In everest, my monitoring software, it shows processor #2 at some % work and processor #1 is always 0%. I tried spamming my computer with multiple movies showing at once and running multiple games at once and it would make my one processor go up to 99%ish but never carried over into the other processor.

My comp specs are:
2.2Ghz dual core AMD turion 64 x2 mobile or something like that
i think i have the nvidia geforce 9700 or something *i just know its 256 dedicated* and 2gb ram.

I was reading a post related that said to change the system energy options but my computer doesnt have said options. Anyway all help will be appreciated.

You need to install the AMD dual core optimizer, along with the AMD dual core drivers from AMD's website.

You go to Control panel > power options for the energy settings

XP Pro | Vista Home Premium | Linux Ubuntu 7.10
s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:
