My computer is a Dell

My computer is a Dell precision 450 running windows xp pro. It has dual cpus. I installed Bionic yesterday and saw on the task manager that it was using both cpus. I then stopped Bionic and reinstalled it on a larger disk. Now it is only using one cpu. The preferences are set to use 2 and the project was updated. I exited and rebooted with no affect. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Tom

BOINC has recognized 4 CPUs on your computer, 2 real and 2 virtual. So the preferences need to be set to 4 to use 100% of that computer.

John Thanks. That did it.

Thanks. That did it. There are now 4 processes running, each taking 25% of the cpu time.
