Then when it pops up go to the BOOT tab, when in the boot tab, hit advanced options, when that popup comes up you will see number of cores, make sure it is NOT checked, this will make computer only see and notice as many as you pick. You could have 4 cores under the pull down menu and then the computer will only see 2 cores since the 2 threads for each core, so uncheck it and that should solve problem, if that is it.
Hope this helps.

Just a point of interest however, why do you have a $1,000 CPU, and a 9600GT?
