if you get more threads than your core count you got hyper threading enabled, try clearing cmos and setting it up again and see if that works.

Don’t think you know how that cpu works. May want to google it first. Then show a pic of what you are seeing so we can understand.

I think you some how have manage to deaktivate one of the 4 cpu cores. So that you now run 3 cores/6 threads.

 

Go in to bios and see if all the cores are set to active and if not. change it so that all cores are active.

 

Else upload a screenshot with either CPU-z open er taskmanager where it shows the CPU load and clocks.

Could change the core setting is msconfig as well. Though I’m sure they would remember that.

Yeah i would mean, if he has played with msconfig, he shut have known.

 

My guess is that he has been in bios playing with overclock or to make other change and some how at that point, set bios to disable one core and by that also 2 threads.
