First, load up the software, and see what PLL/clock gens it supports. Then look on your board to find out which PLL/clock gen chip it uses as most software programs (Everest/CPU-Z etc) don't list the PLL. If the PLL is supported then you raise the FSB/clock with your overclocking program, tweek voltage of CPU and memory, check for safe CPU temps and go from there. Your system might not be software overclockable. Software overclocks were most often done on earlier models, but you might luck out.

That being said, why the need to overclock? It looks to have onboard video, so it likely won't be used for serious gaming purposes. Overclocking a CPU for anything else is a losing proposition as most apps won't show any change.

You can experiment with the program, however, you can achieve a faster, more stable overclock from within the BIOS. That being said, Overclocking, even when done right, shortens the life span of your computers components, even if you manage to keep the heat down. Your system doesn't appear to have anything more then stock cooling-which means you need to make sure you have some way of monitoring temps to make sure you don't overheat and fry your system. And even if you manage to keep it well within cool limits, its making your hardware work harder and do stuff that it was never designed to do, which does nothing but shorten the life span of you computer. I never recomend overclocking, but if your set on doing it make sure you get some sort of temperature monitoring software and perhaps doing some reading, this might give you an idea of the basics http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overclocking
