Did you install your motherboard's drivers as well with all the other component's drivers?

Hello,

Check your BIOS settings to see if there's a setting to enable dual core functionality.

Default Re: New motherboard not recognizing dual-core

i intalled that and it didnt work.
I looked around in my mobo and no luck.
Im not sure if this has to do anything with it, but could it be my xp version?
I have an emachines recovery disk...all it does is restore my computer to its original state.
And its Windows media cented edition 2005.
when i check my boot.ini it shows xp home?

if i install xp pro, would it make a difference?

From your other thread, it looks like the BIOS didn't flash properly

the CMOS checksum error means that the flash utility refused to write the new BIOS

Before the flash utility actually starts reprogramming the BIOS, it generates a checksum (based on the BIOS file itself)
it will only reprogram the BIOS if the checksum matches that needed by the motherboard's BIOS

*edit*
I know exactly what the problem is now. You're running XP Home, which will only use one CPU core.
