    It is an option in the BIOS, but open the task manager, if you see 2 CPU graphs, it is on.

    Isn't Hyper-Threading a technology to enhance multi-tasking?

    I'm curious, what's multi-tasking? I thought HT just improves performance when we're running a few applications

    I think SIW said that it had hyper-threading...

    Edit: I need instructions that make perfect sense and won't mess up my computer.
