I recently noticed a pwerformance drop in my laptop. I just realized that the duo core cpu is now functioning as a single core cpu. anyidea what happened to that second core? I would look in the BIOS to fix it but since its a sony you can't even see the cpu temp let alone tweak the number of cores.

I have a VAIO VGN-NR498E

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

The program crashes when it tries to read my video card when I first try to run it.
