I bought a Lenovo Edge E 330 less than a month ago and just a couple of days I've realized a strange issue
The device manager and cpu-z only shows 3 processors instead of , .and the Ram frequency at 800 Mhz
My config is Intel Core i5 3210M 2.5 Ghz,4 GB Ram DDR3 1600 Mhz.
All drivers are up to date inlcuding BIOS.
HT is enabled by default on bios setup.
What i did so far: unistall each processor and when rebooting it still show only 3.
Tried to look at Msconfig setup to force windows to boot with 4 processors but i only have max 3 shown on the check box.
I've reinstalled Windows and still no solution.
Does anyone have any ideea what could be the problem and what should i do?
I've attached some screens hope it helps!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello Thanks for the tip!
It works now...the problem was that my laptop was factory installed with Version 1.15
Any ideea about the new bios update for windows 8?
As far as i've seen it contains both uefi bios update and ECP update.
UEFI BIOS 1.011.01 (H3ET64WW) ECP (ECP ID)1.16 (H3EC33WW)
Should i try to update to the new bios for windows 8 release?

I've tried and it wasn't working...
when flashed the BIOS with win7, it just display text like shutting down and doing capsule updates.
it will reboot, but nothing happen and just can turned off with a hard power off.
BIOS version stays same...

How did you guys exactly solve the problem?
What should I do?
I check support.lenovo.com and the lastest BIOS is still 1.15! You guys should inform Lenovo to update the bios to 1.16!

just tried the windows 8 BIOS mentioned above and the processor bugs also gone...
to get it flashed under windows 7, we must manually extract the file then go to the folders with cmd.exe and execute "winuptp -S"...
this command will force the BIOS flash
there is alse 1.16 BIOS version on lenovo china website... I've tried it too and it works just fine with my machine...
