Hi,

Welcome To TSF.

You can if you BIOS lets you, If it does try this
Reboot PC
When It Start's, press F10, Del, Esc or what is it for the BIOS Setup.
Select "Advanced"
Select "Power on Option"
Select "Hyper-Threading"
Change the status from Enable to Disable.
Save changes and exit.

I imagine that it will, If not....

Just messege back here. (please do not create a new thread)

Have a nice day.

Jay.

Hello Terror and Welcome to TSF.
In order to help you we'll need a little more system info.
What is the make and model of your motherboard? If it's a Dell, HP, ETC what's the make and model of the system? Without knowing the system info we can't tell you how to disable it in the BIOS.

Matt

Hello again Terror. Your P4 does not support Hyperthreading. Hyperthreading was not supported until P4 3.06ghz.

Part of your Everest Report.
CPUID Features:
36-bit Page Size Extension Supported
Address Region Registers (ARR) Not Supported
CPL Qualified Debug Store Not Supported
Debug Trace Store Supported
Debugging Extension Supported
Fast Save & Restore Supported
Hyper-Threading Technology (HTT) Not Supported

Why do you think you need to disable Hyperthreading?

i am trying to play this game Black and White made by EA games. i had gone to their forums for help because everytime i tried to play the game, immediately after the splash screen the game crashed and my computer restarted with a brief flash of a blue screen. the forums had given turning hyperthreading off as a solution to my problem.
