Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop ?

How do you turn on HyperThreading on a GX260?

\015 I have a bunch of older computers in our office. Some are Dell GX 260. We're not allowed to spend money on new equipment. I noticed that none have hyperthreading turned on. In the Bios, A09, there is not a choice to enable hyperthreading. How do I turn it on? I have a test machine. I've read that turning it on can slow down your machine, but I found the solution for that by changing the HAL. Thanks,\015

Answers :

The gx260 DOES support hyperthreading but only with a 3.06 Northwood processor. You have to enable it in the set up. I am typing from a gx260 with 3.06 hyperthreaded Processor.
Hyperthreading must be supported by the processor. If you don't have that capability, it won't work.
