When you reboot press delete to enter bios and there will be at the bottom left hand side a tab go into there and if it is shaded out you cant if you have a choice to enable it you can! The just up it from lets say 200 to 205 then let it run for a day like that under some heavy load to burn it in at those speed's. Read how to overclock up above. And I meant did Dell make it or gateway or did someone build it for you

you can it just has to be a non property pc ie built by yourself or someone else. Intel motherboards can be overclocked if the have not had there bios locked. And if there bio's are locked there is no way to unlock it!

Will overclocking your processor help any with the 3dmark scores? I was under the impression that 3dmark only tested your graphics card.

ok... :thumbsup:
I bought an Athlon XP mobile 2500 and now I'm having problems with it. It's supposed to be 1.83GHz with a 266MHz FSB, but it runs at 808MHz with a 200MHZ FSB. I got the FSB up to 266MHz, but I can not get the speed up to 1.83GHz. I've tried changing the multiplier to 14 but it stays at 6. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Actually, I did try using this earlier, which didn't seem to work either. Any way, Doesn't this mean I did get the right one?
