771 to 775 converter only showing 2 cores of available 4

Hey, so having recently bought a Xeon E5450 (i think) and used a 771 to 775 converter, i am puzzled as to why my pc cannot see 2 of the 4 cores and only sees it as dual core, when the mobo (P5G41-m si) has the latest bios which supports the intel equivalent (Q9650) any help is appreciated. . .

  2. Same problem with Xeon e5430. The solution is simple:run/ msconfig/boot/ advanced option/ and here you should uncheck "Number of processors" and restart Windows. After that you can select how many cores you want to activate during boot sequence.
