Thank you Sir for the guidance. Yes, there was a problem with MPI
configuration. I reinstalled MPICH2 through administrator account and added
username, password. Now it is working well and using all cores.
I definitely agree with you regarding congestion due to hyperthreading.
Could you tell, for which kinds of calculations, will the HT be useful
I will ensure not to overuse it then.
