LMDE2 Only using 1 cpu on Intel Atom

Hello everyone,

I've been using Linux on my netbook for a couple of years, and although I can still do most stuff on it without much trouble browsing has been quite a pain.

I normally attributed it with websites becoming heavir... but after running lscpu and cat /proc/catinfo, and it only specifies 1 cpu (i'll post the messages later, I'm not on that netbook)...

This would explain the browser issue, at least partially.

My netbook is an Asus 1201n with an Intel Atom 330, 2gb ram (effectively 1,7gb), nvidia ION (256MB shared).

I've always used 32bit linux and saw somewhere else that the issue might be that, so I booted a live USB with amd64 linux, opened the terminal, typed the previous commands... and still 1 cpu...

Here are the terminal outputs:

If anyone has any tip on how to solve this issue I would be happy.

Thanks in advance.
