I bought an AMD Phenom II X3 435 processor hoping I would unlock the fourth core.

I installed it in an MSI NF750-G55 motherboard, which has NVIDIA Core Calibration, which will supposedly unlock any hidden cores automatically.

The options are in bios and include Disabled, Auto, All Cores, and Per Core
When I select auto, and restart my computer, I get no video, and I assume BIOS fails to load

Does this mean my fourth core is unusable? Is there any way I can get around this in BIOS?

I can supply any extra information needed. Thanks in advance
