  • How do I get Win7 to recognize all of the CPUs in my Intel i7-920?

    I seem to be running only 1 core with 2 threads. I tried running msconfig and adjusting the number of processors. It only allowed 1 or 2, but not the 4 that the processor has (it's currently on '2'). However, every testing program I've run still shows 1 cpu, 2 threads. I would appreciate any help with this

    I understand that the parent star has to be of at least a certain mass. My question is in the mechanics. As I understand it, the star's nuclear reactions will eventually result in iron which will settle in the core. Since iron doesn't release energy when it fuses, it accumulates and eventually becomes so massive that it can't hold itself up and collapses into a neutron star. This neutron star is squeezed and then rebounds and forces the incoming stellar material outwards ultimately resulting in a supernova. Now, if the neutron star rebounds, there's no more incoming material to form a black hole. And if the neutron star doesn't rebound, it collapses into a black hole and the incoming material is absorbed, resulting in no supernova. So, how do you get both? Thanks

  • What am I doing wrong? (Probability Question)?

    I have 24 10-sided dice and want to know what the odds are of rolling a '1' on at least 4 of them. To solve this, I used the following equation: 24C4 * (1/10)^4 * (10/10)^24 where 24C4 is the combination of 24 things taken 4 at a time.

(1/10)^4 is the probability of getting 4 '1's with a 1/10 chance for each '1' (10/10^4 is the probability of getting anything on the remaining dice. I don't care what these dice roll since I already have the required 4 '1's The only problem with the equation is that it doesn't work. I keep getting a probability greater than 1 I would appreciate ny help with this Thanks
