I really want to try out hyperthreading, but when I enable it in BIOS, I find that the response from keyboard presses are slow. In fact, when I opened Task Manager to take a look, pressing a key shoots the CPU load up pretty high. And holding down the arrow keys shoots it all the way to 100% and freezes the whole system (as in screen freezes, mouse cursordoesn't move). All is fine if I don't use the keyboard at all (not acceptable of course).
I tried it on Windows 2000 Pro and Windows XP SP2. Both have the same problem. Evenflashed my motherboard BIOS to the latest version, but to no effect. I'm using the Gigabyte SINXP-1394 btw... And the filterkeys function in Windows is off.
I tried searching forums for people encountering the same problem. But I only found one case... with no solution.
Any idea what could be wrong?
I'm using the P4 3.0Ghz w/ HT.
