  • Under Windows NT, one uses the uptomp.exe tool to add support for multiple CPUs. This is not supported under Windows 2000. Instead you use Device Manager to switch from the single processor to multi-processor capable HAL. See How to Add Support for Multiple Processors in Windows 2000 for more information.

  • For help troubleshooting HAL problems such as misdetection, an outdated or non-compliant Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) Basic Input/Output System (BIOS), or an incorrectly or manually installed computer type see How to Troubleshoot Windows 2000 Hardware Abstraction Layer Issues for more information.
