Core unlocking problem.

hi guys just wanna ask you about my problem in unlocking cores.

here's my spec
-Athlon 2 x3 450 3.2GHZ (stock fan)
-ASUS M4N68T-M LE V2
-Powercolor hd 5570
-6GB 1333 RAM
-Local Power supply with 600watts

so here it goes whenever i try to unlock my CPU by pressing 4 it shutdowns automatically and restarts it shows 3 cores unlocked and show phenom ii x4b50 with 3 cores and 3 threads and also when i do it manually same thing happens.

i also noticed that my cores when i manually core i noticed that my CPU has 5 cores which is 2nd core, 3rd core, 4th core, 5th core,and 6th core.and usually my 3rd core is the only one that is off.whenever i turn on the 3rd core it's says that the current CPU cant be unlocked something liked that when i'm finished in the BIOS. i already tried bumping my CPU still the same problem. hope you can help me thanks in advance.

  2. "i also noticed that my cores when i manually core i noticed that my CPU has 5 cores which is 2nd core, 3rd core, 4th core, 5th core,and 6th core"

    This makes no sense. There is no way a triple core CPU can have 5 cores. Where did you see this?

    As skitz mentioned, chances are that your 4th core is faulty and cannot be unlocked.
  3. sorry guys for the late reply..i will just overclock my cpu for performance..thanks by the way. here's the photo of 5 cores that im telling about it's in the bios..
