2 CPUs in Device Manager

By lazybedstar23 ·
Hello,

I have a Dell Dimension 8300 P4 3.0GHz and in Device Manager it shows 2 entries for the Pentium 4, like I have two processors, but I dont! LOL...

Any hints?

Thanks,
Adam

I think you've got hyperthreading switched on. This presents the processor to the operating system as if it were two separate processors. you should be able to switch the hyperthreading on and off in the CMOS/BIOS setup.
