Unhappy Hyper-Threading

Hello,
I have built a 2.8 Northwood pc for a friend, His specs are as follows...
Windows XP Pro
Intel 2.8 Northwood 800FSB H-T
MSI 848 p mobo
1x 512: 1x 256 DDR400 PC3200
Ati 9600xt
The problem is there is no option in bios to turn on the Hyper-Threading. The performance bar in the task manager has only one processor listed. Any suggestions?
My rig is very similar except there is options in bios to turn on Hyper-Threading, the only diff is i have the FIC 865PE instead.
I am tottaly lost on this please any help my friend would greatly appreciate it.

Thank You,
Glenn

I don't understand what you're saying, you say it's weird showing the FSB as 800MHZ?

sometimes a BIOS update may be required to suport Hyperthreading

the Gigabyte GA-8IHXP was not originally designed to support HT, but Gigabyte created a BIOS update so that it can
your mobo might be the same
