A few things...

Did you take a PC that had another CPU in it and simply switch it for a Bulldozer FX-8120 without re-installing Windows?
If you did... reinstall Windows.

Second thing... update your BIOS to make sure it is running the latest version for full Bulldozer support.

re-seat your ram, even try putting it in different slots. As for the 8 core only reporting 4 thing, where are you looking for this information? windows task manager?
