Howdy folks,

got an issue in that Windows 8.1 Pro is not seeing all my CPU cores on my A10-7870K.


Windows thinks I have 1 Core and 2 logical processors.

(see attached Screenshot 14)


As far as I know I am on the right BIOS version on my ASUS ROG Crossblade Ranger board.


CPU-Z is only showing 2 cores and not 4.

(see attached Screenshot 4 to 13)

I'm running SightHound security software on the machine to record video streams from my IP cameras, so I want as many cores as possible

since I am taxing the CPU quite a bit - at times running between 80-95% load - and I am convinced this would be a lot less if it saw all the cores.


Can someone who knows their way around the Bios a bit better than me see where I have gone wrong??
