"I have a abit motherboard it7 max2 and my mother boardboard is hyper threading ready and my cpu is a Intel Pentium 4 / 2.4CGHz 512k socket 478 Hyper Threading Technology 800 MHz FSB -

mobo: Abit IT7 max2
cpu : P4 2.4/512 HT/800MHz

Sounds like the setting for the cpu is at Default in the BIOS. Go into the BIOS(hit Delete key) at first screen when starting up. Read and follow the instructions from your mobo manual and cpu instructions and reboot.

The 'Soft Menu' for ABIT Bios has a lot of settings that all have to jive in order to get the right configuration for your CPU.

FSB,Multiplier,FSB:AGP:pCI ratio,CPU FSB/DRAM ratio...

Take your time and do it right...
