Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Dell D620 laptop with an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz running Windows XP Professional SP2. I have an old legacy program that fails to run properly, this issue is linked to the cpu speed. I need to slow down the processor speed to make this program work. Other than running a third party software ~ I am looking for Intel's alternative option. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

    That route was already explored with no success. This legacy program is actually working on another PC with a single core processor running Windows XP Professional SP2. The problem I'm having is either linked to the multithreading due to the dual core processor or the higher speed ~ I'm leaning towards the higher speed.

    I loaded / tested VM ware yesterday ~~ this definitely helped out. I was hoping that Intel had a patch or offered some software to control the cpu processor based on a specific legacy program.

One thing you could try (if you have not tried it yet) is to right click the program file, then select "properties" from the menu, then, when the properties screen opens select the "compatibility tab" and check the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for", then choose an "older OS" for your program.

    One solution that is FAR fetched would be to run your program in a virtual machine on your PC : This virtial machine will emulate your PC "with a single core processor running Windows XP Professional SP2".



    Another solution is 2 disable hyper threading in the BIOS. Thus "slowing your pc down" a little
