how can i tell if i have a dual core processor? RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have an Etower that runs an old version of windows XP 2003 that was previously used at a high school computer lab and i opened it up to see if it had a dual core or single core, but with no experience in looking at the inside of computers i cant tell if it is a single core or dual core, because of there being many things that there are two of and many things there are one of. i just need to know how i can tell if i have a dual core or single core

  • Download CPUZ from http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpuz/cpuz_152_setup.exe

    This program will tell you the exact model of the cpu without having to open the computer case.

    Once you know the model you can google the model and find out if it is dual core.
