I just upgraded my system.
MOBO = ASRock 775Dual-VSTA ATX Intel Motherboard.
CPU = Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
RAM = 2 Ghz (sdramm ddr2 667)

After running "CPU-Z" I noticed the following;
Only displaying 1 core insted of 2.
Only displaying 1 thread instead of 2

Please help. I'm getting the run around from the manufactures.

Look in the Performance tab of Task Manager - does it show one or two graphs for the CPU? If so, then CPU-Z is at fault. If not, then you may have to enable the second core in your BIOS (some mobo's don't recognize Core 2 Duo chips very well)
