so basically esupport lied to me by saying the bios upgrade would ad HT support. i basically i am using this old medion 1294 desktop, and i wanted to max it out until i build a new computer, i dont think i can slap a new motherboard in this one cuz i bought it in costco and it was pre built.
this is what i am working with, i have it about maxed out as much as it will take, it has 2gb ram, p4 2.66 pny geforce 6600 256 agp. that video card was a pain to get working, that was why i did the bios in the first place. check out all the fans i put in! i changed the psu since the pix, it has a 650w one, and a different processor heatsink and fan. soundblaster 24bit value card. it also has dual nec dvd burners. this thing is like a crazy modded out old pc. lol
If the board does not support HT, the BIOS cannot add HT support.
Denniss seems to think the board does not support HT. My position is that I do not know if the board supports HT. If you want to find out whether the board is a HT board, check it's specs - probably on the website I directed you to.
If this is a non-HT board, forget your new CPU working on this board.
