Hmm. I had this happen with my wifes Dell Studio 540 the other day when I removed the heatsink and cpu for cleaning. There was a piece of dust under the cpu between the cpu and the socket after I cleaned it up. It wasn't detecting the cpu. Maybe you are in the same boat. Maybe try removing the heatsink and check to make sure the cpu is seated properly and nothing is between the pins and the socket.
