Hi there my friends,
Today I am working in a Lenovo A52 8343 system, and after various try, I really can't enable the famous Hyperthreading.
I think that it's important to enable it to make the operating system see two cores and will be faster.
Anyway, I haven't reach my point yet.
The system is a Lenovo A52 8343, with 3gb of RAM (4gb isn't fully disponible to the system I don't know why even if the bios sees them), a nice Pentium 4 640 HT processors and a motherboard with the 945G chipset.
So, let's come to us.
In bios I can see the option to enable/disable the Hyperthreading. I obviously set on Enable.
I tried several times to reinstall the operating system, a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
They wrote that I have to install the operating system to make it see the Hyperthreading processors, so I did.
But nothing changed.
Windows only see Pentium 4 640 processor.
Using ctrl+alt+canc to see the resources gestor, I can see only a core. Often in difficult running to 100 percent, you know.
Using msconfig the core option is unchecked, but if I check it I can only select one core.
If I download Cpu-z it find the processor correctly but in the last line I read 1 core 1 thread.
No way to see 2 thread as it should be with HT.
I reinstalled Windows another time, same results.
I really cannot enable this HT.
Now, there are other trying I can do? Is the motherboard limited even if on Lenovo support page they say it correctly support Pentium with HT and Pentium D too?
Is something faulty on the cpu?
I tried another processor, a d915 and Windows 7 see only one core, even if I think isn't fully supported by the latest bios of the motherboard.
I really run out of ideas, can you help me and give more tries?
I try to change Windows 7? I try the home edition? Professional?
Help is widely appreciated.
Thanks a lot guys!
