I think I may have stumbled upon some issue that i maybe having
Apparently i should have two graphs in windows task manager if i have two cores and i set the option in it to show the cores separately. Thus i think one of the cores are not working.
Additionally, i think i maybe missing drivers but i already upgraded my video card.
I downloaded a program that required a freeware add on and after that, my computer randomly kept freezing on me. So I used a program on the internet that erases the hard drive and i reinstalled Vista on my laptop but i am still having problems. The spec for my laptop are
AMD Turion 64x 1.6 gz
2 gigs of ram
ATI radeon Xpress 1100
