Cpu:Ryzen 5 3600
So in task manager it only says my CPU has 2 cores even though there's 6 and when i try to use msconfig i can only set to 4 cores but it doesn't even work if i press apply.
My old cpu had 4 cores maybe thats why but im wondering how i can use all 6 cores?

In MSConfig...clear the checkbox next to Number of Processors.

Check your BIOS that it's not disabling any cores nor disabling symmetric multithreading. If in doubt, just do a clear CMOS. In fact, if you didn't do that when you changed CPU's you should do that now.
