Amd athlon x4 635 getting awful 3dmark06 cpu score

I've ran the test several times overall im getting around 11,000 but the cpu score is around 3800.......there is no reason for a quad core to be this low, is there?

The card is a 9800gt and all chipset and graphic drivers are up to date.

Please help
