asus p5gd1 hyperthread enable in bios.
Win xp pro sp1a french fresh install. (my psu died had to rebuild)

Everest home edition reports hyperthread enable
2 cpu unit visible but only unit 2 gets loaded unit 1 is always 0%
even under severe multitask.

Any idea ?

Well it isn't really two CPUs. Although my Pentium 4 Hyper Threading Northwood shows both graphs with activity, even though it's only running one program. Hmmmm.... It's different that my X2 4800+, both graphs move but one moves a lot less.

Yes they are.

It seems the problem resolved itself d'ont now why but now it works fine :?:

When my psu broke i had lost hyperthread and reinstalled xp
was working fine..then only one unit was getting the load...then i installed a couple of games anyway.. it came back

Talk about weird science :roll:

Thank you for the hint i did not now knew this one :wink:

Now i have weird mouse click behaviour....some time it is really fast and some time i have to hold it down to select something...
maybe when my psu broke more than the psu sufferd...
