    One out of two cores not working (e6750)! Need help

    Hi guys,

    I just realized that one of my cores has either stopped working or died on me. I've using a E6750 and running a 3.2GHz overclock for about 3 weeks or so already. It usually runs at about 46 degrees C idle for both cores and when I'm playing games (warhammer online), it goes to about 52 degrees C for both.

    I had stuttering issues with Warhammer Online recently so I decided to go ahead and install some new ATI Catalyst 8.10 drivers. Somehow after doing my driver cleaning, registry cleaning and installing my new drivers, I found out that one of my cores had died or stopped working! I checked this through coretemp and CPU-z as well, it only states that I have a single core.

    Can anyone knowledgeable enough give me some advice? Did my CPU actually fry out or did i accidentally turned one of my cores off. Much thanks.

    Oh and I'm using a Asus P5K mobo.

    XP? If so, it may have switched to the wrong Kernel for some reason

    Possibly useful advice in last post on this page: http://www.planetamd64.com/lofiversi...hp?t30279.html

    Also try looking in your BIOS settings, especially if you've been in there recently for overclocking
