What happens if there is multi-core or Dual-Core coupling processors to the top with Windows 7 Home Premium?

So if I have a Windows7 Home Premium 64 - bit operating system and I use a processor dual core (Intel Dual Core e5300 CPU) are fully compatible or how they work together, given the fact that Windows 7 recognizes that one of the two processors? Playback of the system is expressed in the fact that it has two current processors. Both processors work simultaneously to form a combined data stream is a dormant or they turn on and off opposing to another so that each works half the time? Many scenarios as possible, but I would like to know... the real answer as to what needs to be changed eventually to bring together a system more fluid? My main question is the operating system and the processor may be an incompatibility problem that has not yet been addressed? I can't find any answer in the Center Compatabiity of Windows 7 or anywhere else. Or is the limitation of windows 7 Home Premium and only be able to support an unfounded processor see the fact that there are many systems that are in work today with these components. ?


Hey Randy,

If your system has two separate physical processors (not hearts) and you are running Windows 7 Home Premium, the second processor is completely ignored. It turns on and turn his fans, but it does not all rights for the computer. Windows 7 Home Premium will not take advantage of a single processor.

However, if you have a single physical processor with multiple cores, Windows 7 64-bit will benefit from up to 256 cores. It is very probably the type of machine that you have because it is quite rare to have multiple processors co-location in a workstation computer.

In this scenario, Windows will use two cores for separate tasks. Applications will be evenly distributed between the carrots, unless the application has been written to take advantage of multiple cores. The two hearts are turned on and both are used when the system is running.

You can check if Windows has recognized the two hearts looking Manager of the tasks of your system:

  1. Open the Task Manager by right-clicking the taskbar, and then click Start Task Manager.
  2. Click the performance tab.

The top two graphs show how much CPU is used, as well at the moment and for a few minutes. If the CPU usage history graph seems shared, your computer has multiple processors, a single dual-core CPU or both.

Windows 7 system requirements also go in a little more detail on how many windows cores/processors can take in charge:


Hope this helps to answer your question!

  • my computer at home base down loaded /my computers certificate of authinticity says I am having windows vista Home premium and I have no disc what do I doto fix the problem in windows vista

    my computer has windows vista basic on it when I went to athinticate, he told me it was a pirate down load that I looked on the bottom of my lap top and I am supposed to have windows vista Home premium. How can I solve this problem with a disc


    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

    You need to change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order:

    How to change the Boot order in BIOS:


    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.


    See if you have a recovery Partition:

    There may be a recovery on the drive Partition hard reinstall Vista to how you bought your computer, unless the pirated installation wiped.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

  • Accidentally, I installed my product key for Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional. Is there a possible way to activate Windows with this key?

    Activate Windows 7: Home Premium on professional product key - please help!

    Hello world

    I hope you can help me!
    I have a product key for Windows 7 Home Premium. I downloaded it online when I bought it so that I never received a disc to reformat. Someone at work gave me their CD to reformat.
    After you reformat and reinstall ALL my programs, I went to activate Windows 7 again. Guess what? Turns out that I used Windows 7 Professional to reformat.
    Really, I don't want to go through reformatting and reinstalling everything and don't even know if I'll be able to get my hands on a CD to reformat Windows 7 Home Premium.
    Is there anyway can I still activate my product key for Windows 7 Home Premium Windows 7 Professional? In any case I can exchange my Home Premium product key to a professional one? I love how my computer is currently configured and won't do anything else that just activate my legitimate version of Windows 7!
    Thank you all in advance for your time.

    The only way to do it would be to buy a license for Pro-

    Since you have already apparently a licnese to Home Premium, you could buy an upgrade, and then create a repair install with the new key.

    If you bought a full Pro license, you will be able simply to insert your new key and activate that.

  • Device Version Manager: 6.1.7600.16385 presenting no matter what devices or Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit drivers? This has already been answered? If you don't see it you can check or update all drivers.


    Whenever the device driver is selected there is just a blank page that appears. There are no announcements of any drivers anywhere, or visible by any way within Windows 7 Home Premium. For this reason there is no way to check on all the drivers or the parts of the system to see if there is no system conflicts.  I have a driver repair program that when search enabled for and comes with a list of drivers on the computer and indicates the factors that bear on a date and will go through the steps to change but since I have no way to see the driver manager or it's poster so I can't say if something is changed.

    If I have something again plug it into a USB Port, the computer recognizes that something has been plugged, but that it will not open the directory automatically, as it used to do.  For example if I put in a CD or a DVD that has auto start it won't, so it's just sitting there. If I use Windows Explorer and click computer directory will show a device for example: DVD has a DVD named such and so in the drawer.

    Plug-and-Play is selected and activated, but it seems that it does not work.  If I plug a USB key into the USB (any USB port) it sometimes it indicates with a beep or a pop-up window indicating something was plugged or removed as the case may be.

    If this file has been deleted, if it is to cause such a thing?  This computer (gateway) has a grounded partition which has a restore works however it resets all default settings etc. or can erase all files.  If there is a way to download the missing files, which makes Driver Manager do its thing, it would be a good thing. Any suggestions?


    Thank you for your suggestions. They were a good start, I followed everything as suggested, but nothing helped.

    1. as to the question was just a new program installed before this problem?  The answer could be Yes. But unknown to you, because I can't be sure of the effective date of what's going on.

    I tried to go back, at an earlier date, but it did not help.

    2. for Plug and Play - he already is set to Auto and is active, but it is grayed out and I can't change it. So it turns out that I'm locked somehow. Even if I am put as an administrator.

    3. I went into the registry and everything what you suggested is already there.

    4. the problem still exists.

    Always looking for HELP


    Hi DwBent,

    I would be grateful if you could answer the following question:

    Were there any software or hardware changes made on the computer before this problem?

    This can cause if the Plug and Play service is disabled (disabled people); I suggest you follow the troubleshooting steps and check if it helps;

    Method 1:

    To resolve this problem, set the startup type for Plug-and-Play on automatic. To do this, follow these steps:

    (a) click Start, click run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

    (b) double click on Plug-and-Play. If you receive a Configuration Manager message, click OK.

    (c) in the Startup Type list, click Automatic, and then click OK.

    (d) Community Services.

    (e) restart the computer.

    Method 2: The other reason, Device Manager may be empty is because there are some security issues with the registry key.

    Warning: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    Back up the registry


    (a) go to "Start", click "run", type "regedt32" and press enter.

    (c) scroll down to "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum".

    (d) with 'Enum' selected, click on "security", "Permissions" menu

    Note: At this point, you'll probably notice that there are no permissions on this key.

    (e) click on 'Add'.

    (f) add the group "everyone" and the "SYSTEM" user.

    (g) select "everyone" and check the "read" ONLY!

    (h) select 'SYSTEM' and check the 'total control'.

    (i) click on the button "Advanced" at the bottom of the window.

    (j) on the control of the Advanced window "Reset permissions on all child objects... »

    (k) click on 'OK'.
