AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor only using two cores

Hello, I've been having an issue on and off for a year or so now where my AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor will only use two cores. It seems like pot luck as to whether it will use all eight or just the two each time I turn on my PC. My drivers are all up to date and my settings aren't limiting the amount of cores in use. I have tried and failed to search for a solution so I am resorting to asking here.

If anyone has any ideas or solutions please share them, it would be great to put this problem to rest finally.

How have you determined that it is using only two cores? Is a specific task showing only two cores under load  or?
