Hello ALL

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. It has a dedicated NVidia Graphics Card whose model number is 8400M GS.

I would like to overclock it to extract more performance from it. Is it possible? What is the procedure?

What are the pros and cons that i should be aware of while doing this?

I run a MS XP Home Edition, 4 gig RAM and DirectX 9.0c.

If anybody can help me i would be grateful

Thank You

Overclocking a laptop GPU will burn a hole through it. Laptops have enough heating issues as it is.
It may even be impossible. Most vendors lock those options.
