try the free utilizy cpu-z and see if it reads correctly.
yes already did that even email the print screen shots to Intel as well but nothing works out no clue at all, also i am not using the Intel Speed Tech its already disable in BIOS dont know whats going on really so much stressed and hate it
you have the latest bios flashed as well?
post the cpu-z screen here?
Have you tried going to Device manager and go to the processor and scan for hardware changes . then see if it reconizes the CPU correctly??
chk both of the images so you buds have an idea the problem i am facing, i am using windows xp sp3, the theme i am using is win7
Now just 2 days back i have installed the windows again formatting the Disk but none help me out i am getting the same stupid error when ever i completely remove the power form the CPU, i wish some one resolve this issue for me i am getting so much fedup now
Note: i am using Everything Latest from BIOS to Drivers from the given DP45SG site on intel mother board support area
Simon Have you tried , In device manger going to properites and have the sys auotmaticly check for update for drivers and let windows do it , I know you have already Installed the lastest Intel driveers, Try letting windows have a go at it and see what happens.
I would power the system down completly and remove the CPU, have a good look at the pads on the cpu and the pins on the motherboard just to check tis all ok, then put it all back together and see what happens
