check with everest under the Operating System tab -> licenced processors..make sure your mps is @ 1.4 in CMOS not 1.1 they are different revs of the MultiProcessor Specification. 1.4 is later and better however the ACPI spec includes all of, and replaces, the MPS 1.4 spec, so if you have ACPI enabled you are running MPS 1.4, regardless of what the MPS setting is.

Ok RuSo, I'm not that up to date with processor terminology i'm afraid.

In system details in Vista it states "AMD athlon 64 3800+ 1 core, 1 logical processor - so it's definetely not recognising it.

In Device Manager under computer it states ACPI x86-based pc
- presumably ACPI is enabled

(will try to get copy of everest from friend)

post a coretemp screen.....Coretemp
If it shows up as an 3800+ and you bought that as an 3800X2 (new in box) the store/you might have been scammed.......or there was a packaging mistake

lol, thank god no! I built the rig myself and i'm pretty sure i remember reading on the chip that its dual core (and on the box for that matter!) Good idea though.

Could one of the core's 'break' (for want of a better word)

Does anoyone have any idea what's wrong?

There's nothing wrong. It's a single core processor that was linked a few posts up.
