OK, been doing a bit of looking around and it seems I need to enable the UCC or UUC or some such in my BIOS so it'll see the 2nd core. Wonder if I should do this before or after I install Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64bit?

Still not got this figured out. I installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64 bit and went back in after restart to check the BIOS and it's still saying it's a single core processor even though I set it to performance mode in the BIOS. Another thing, the WiFi isn't working even though I have the switch on the side set to "on". In the "network" area in Ubuntu it doesn't even show a wireless network even though I've also went into settings and set one up. I'm sure these are just simple tweaks but I really need some help here.

It's showing that I have a Broadcom Corp BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
So it IS showing a WiFi card available, and I've pushed the switch to the "On" position a number of times but don't get a WiFi light by the little emblem. Also, after I installed Ubuntu I checked BIOS again and it's still saying I have a single core processor.

I can't even get on the interweb with a cable hooked into my modem. It's like the Broadcom card is there and the computer will see it but I can flip the switch to turn it on. I'll report back in a second.

too much stuff to type out here, LOL.
What specifically would I be looking for in all that mess?
Ok, I went into my "network" settings and it for wired network it said "cable unplugged" so I wiggled the cable and it actually hooked into the network. I'm going to do an update to see if it'll get me some drivers that'll work. I'll report back.
