This usually forces your computers os to see your processor as a single core processor in the case where you may have a dual or quad core processor installed.

I have a dou core and my issue is my server only sees one core. I used a tool called AMIBCP to look at my bios. This is the settings for my bios. Can you tell me if this is set to read and use a dou core. Thanks

If you disable the single logical core feature in your bios save the settings and then turn off your computer for 30 seconds and reboot and then run this again you will see both cores.

The OS was the issue. I reinstalled the OS and the 2 cores now show. I think it was a driver corruption.
