You make adjustments in the BIOS. The BIOS is specific to different computer manufacturers. Most retail computer makers lock the BIOS so you cannot make those type of adjustments

Most likely, if you have an HP/Compaq, Gateway, Dell, etc. then they don't allow you to overclock your processor. It's not the processor's fault, it's the motherboard's fault. They do it because people that don't know what they're doing could damage their system.
