Windows 7 not recognizing multiple cores

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Specs:

MoBo: Asus M4A78T-E
Bios: 3406 (updated)
Processor: AMD Phenom x2 555 BE Unlocked to Phenom x4 955 BE
OS: Windows 7 64-bit

Situation:

edit: I have also gone into device manager and uninstalled the processors. When I have the dual it shows two and when it is unlocked there are 4 however it is still not seen in msconfig (below).

msconfig/boot/advanced only allows one core.

task manager only has one graph.

cpuid sees all cores.

I don't know what to do with this. Any help would be great with fixing this very irritating problem. I am unable to play specific games at the level I would like them due to the fact that it does not recognize I have a quad or even a dual core processor.

Uncheck the box for Number of Processors and reboot.
