hyperthreading

I want to enable this on my Dell Dimension 4600 xp2 sp2. I got into system setup by tapping f2. I was told the option would be under 'cpu' but it was not there.
Can anyone help. Thank you

Got this from Dells website:

To enable or disable HT Technology, perform the following steps:

Reboot the computer.

When the Dell logo screen appears, press the < F2 > key until the computer enters the System Setup program.

Press the < Down Arrow > key until CPU Information is highlighted.

Press the < Enter > key to display the available choices.

Press the < Up Arrow > key or the <Down Arrow> key to highlight Hyper-Threading


Did you do exactly what is says above?

Do you have a hyperthread enabled CPU?

H.t.

Yes I found it and it is disabled by default. I took the advice of someone who had a different model and went to cpu and hit enter to see the sub categories. When it wasnt visible I hit esc-hope no damage done. All is running ok. I read enabling it may require some program updates so I'm leaving it where it is.
Thank you
Pete
