Default disabling HyperThreading will crash the pc

temperature:
idle=54
heavyload=66

if I go to the bios and disable HT the next time my PC boots up it will shutdown itself before it passes the windows xp boot screen.
I want to disable HT because I get slowdown for 102 secs when I open folders

Re-enable C&Q in Bios, start the PC, remove the CPU driver, or disable power saving, then restart. Should work OK then.

I thought you had to reinstall Windows each time you enabled/disabled hyperthreading?

Interesting. That's the first I've heard of it, but I don't think it's necessary. I've enabled/disabled it a few times w/o any issues on the same install of XP.

My humble apologies peeps, I just answered an almost exactly the same worded question on C&Q on another forum, and then flicked over to this one, I didn't read the question properly, thats why you probably shouldn't do these things late at night!

Hyperthreading ? Hm, sorry I'm an AMD boy.

re-install windows?never heared of this before
I updated the M/B to the latest version...now it won't crash and it's faster when I open folders...doesnt pause at all.
but with the latest bios it takes me more than 1 minute to get into windows
the hard disk has no problems..my primary suspects are the CPU and the M/B.
