Does the 6th core show up in Task Manager or do you only see 5 cores being monitored? If only 5 are showing, then it sounds like either a BIOS setting is incorrect, or you may have a dead core. What is your setup for the motherboard, ram, etc? If that core has been working, then suddenly stopped and you haven't really changed anything, then I would try contacting AMD/the vendor for an RMA.
