Enable Duo-Core AMD CPU?
Posted on 2008-02-01
Just purchased an HP Pavillion dv9720us laptop from Circuit City, and the guy said that they would do all the setup for us for a fee. I opted not to do this, but one thing he mentioned that I thought was interesting was that he mentioned all the Duo-Core CPU's come with one core disabled by default, and part of their service was to enable it.
I've checked the BIOS settings, and could not find anything specific about this. Nor could I in any other part of the computer - can someone shed light on this?
Is this just a sales tactic to get people to get their Firedog service?
