Default CPU question

Hey guy,

I was just looking through a program that I got called "PCWizard 2006" and I noticed something strange. This program is a program that looks at all of your computers hardware and tells you about it and I just read something that confuses me. I have a P4 system that is a couple years old and I knew it didnt have "Hyperthreading" when I bought it and never thought twice about it until tonight.

Anyway, while looking through this program I checked out the "Processor" tab. This program is telling me everything from its speed to its serial number. Well, this is everything it had listed......notice the "HTT" tag and how it says YES & the "Hyperthreading enabled" and how it says NO:

Ok, I have an HP Pavillion a335w. Its not a blazer but it does everything I want to do however Im getting more into gaming. I can play Doom 3 on high and with my new graphics card I can play any game but sometimes have to lower the settings.

Is it possible that my CPU HAS "Hyperthreading" and HP decided to disable it or use a MOBO that doesnt support it for whatever reason!?!

i have a northwood p4 and in my bios it says i have hyperthreading enabled even tho i dont have it. i havent tried pcwizard but i'll give it a go.

you dont have hyperthreading. HTT is your FSB and is only used with AMD's
