Default Dual Core Problem

My nephew has an intel 3.0 dual core processor with asus P5VDC motherboard and 2 GB RAM...

As his curiousness strikes, he suddenly alter BIOS setup (as what he said) and voila, it only serves as single core processor. And now he doesn't know what steps did he do and he want it back to become dual core.... Hope you help me regarding this. Thanks peepz

Reset the cmos jumper, that will return all bios settings to default which should solve the problem. Your m/board manual will have the location of the jumper on the board and a description of what to do. If you do not have a copy of the manual you can d/load one from the Asus website.
