Every cpu is different. Some won't post when you try to unlock the cores due to instability. The cores are usually disabled for a reason.

Some chips are disabled because they are faulty, some are disabled just to meet demand. When you buy an X2 or X3, it's possible that the core is really faulty, or it's possible that they will work. It's really a gamble, if you needed a quad, you should have bought a quad.
