If you update your scores in the Windows Experience Index it should re-recognize your CPU.
But, as you can see from my last link in my first post - that didn't work for me! Vista says that I don't have any RAM or a CPU!
That being said, it does recognize my CPU (but I haven't changed it).
Several things to try:
1) Right click on the Processor heading in Device Manager and click on "Scan for hardware changes" Does that work?
2) Check to see if you've got the latest BIOS version for your motherboard. If not, scan the updates that are available to see if they address CPU recognition. If you find this, then you may have to flash your BIOS (be very, very careful!!!)
3) I don't have the courage to do this on my system - but you can uninstall the processors by right clicking on the and selecting "Uninstall" Once you've done that, reboot the system and let Windows re-detect the processors. I've never done this, so I don't have any idea of how it'll work - but it works with other hardware devices. Good luck!
