I actually need some computer help...go figure!

I have a Dual Core Opteron 180 running on an a8n32-sli deluxe motherboard.
The bios + POST message both show 2 logical processors as they should but XP still sees only one processor.

I go in to system Devices and then click Processors it shows Two processors. When i run apps like Cpuz or some of the AMD Tools they both report only one processor. My SMP apps run like [content edited] compared to the other opteron 180 i got so i know SMP isnt enabled.

Things I've Done:
Fresh Install of XP
Flashed To the latest BIOS For the motherboard
MSConfig -> BOOT.INI -> Advanced to confirm /NUMPROC was not checked.
All Hotfixes/Security Updates Applied through MS Update's site.
Running XP Pro


Anyone care to shed some light on this problem of mine?

Please disregard. The A8N32-SLI Dlx is messing things up for some reason. I put the 180 in a different box and both cores are operating normally.
