Surely you think the company would write a patch for that.

A+ Core Hardware, Software Certified (May 13 2005)
the new beast...

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Barton running at 2.16 Ghz.
GeForce MX 4000 (mainly takes the load off the main system)
Creative Labs Audigy 24-bit sound.
Some Case from tigerdirect
512 MB Ultra DDR RAM.
80GB Seagate HDD
LiteOn CD-RW / DVD ROM drive.
currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.

Compaq informed me of a BIOS update...but the update did not resolve the non-ability to disable HyperThreading. So we returned the Compaq and purchased a Sony VAIO RS420.

Both the machines have very similar specs. But the Sony machine runs so much better, because it does not have the extra Compaq-added crap that always runs in the background....Compaq pop-up windows, advertising, etc. And the 120 GB harddrive on the Sony machine was partitioned with a 90 GB D: drive right out of the box, so the drive did not have to be reformatted.

Big thumbs down to Compaq.
