  1. Device Manager > Processors tab > Right click CPU and click scan for hardware changes, worked for me.
  2. Ahh, I fixed it, I went to run>msconfig>boot>advanced options>unchecked the number of processors box that I had previously set to 4 for my old CPU and applied, okayed and restarted the pc.
