Now it doesn't matter which exactly edition of Win7 you're trying. Any edition should use more than one CPU cores (I don't remem […]biessea wrote on 2022-11-13, 18:57:
Oh yes sorry, I am confusing a little bit cause I have another system than it's a Lenovo A55 and have all 4gb installed there.
In this system I have 3gb installed in four modules and dual channel enabled.
So I will try a Win 7 home edition, or perhaps a Win 10 too what do you think? It's a big shame to have Hyperthreading and don' t use it.

Personally I don't like Windows 10 because it likes to live its own life 😀 I understand that you think Win10 is usable and WinXP is not. Anyway I would try both 😀biessea wrote on 2022-11-13, 19:13:Horun wrote on 2022-11-13, 19:06:
It has to be something between the BIOS/chipset and the OS that is not seeing the HT (640) or dual core (D915) proper is the OS. Would be interesting to see what a Linux Live boot cd says........
And this problem hasn't never been out before? I am really surprised, cause this Lenovo Pc were sold a lot.
So no other ideas than try and try other OS?
Of course there is one more way: to desolder BIOS chip, find dump from type 8114 and flash it, solder PLCC32 socket and so on 😀 And it may not help too.
So I find really incredible that in the cpu support chart they told that is supported even a Pentium D940. And how can a person use that dual core feature?
God it's so frustrating without a real explainatiom from Lenovo at this point.
