google is your friend man.

Its the chip on your mobo that controls your fsb.
when you find that chip you tell the software thats what it is and it can boost your fsb.

I need to find the number of the PLL without taking apart my computer.
If there is no way then is it safe to take apart my computer?
And how do I find the chip with the PLL number on it?

Software overclocking with clockgen is dangerous and doesn't work very well.

On a OEM machine with stock cooling you will not get a noticeable boost anyway, best just to leave it.

Clockgen is really old too, don't think it's been updated for at least 4 years could be wrong though.

Best thing to do is try and speed up windows and free memory usage. Search google, I recommend turning off some services and startup programs.

Edit: Wow thats a laptop as well? Do NOT overclock a laptop with a 4 year old software overclocking tool that requires your PLL.

This. As soon As I started to read you specs, It made me think laptop. Then i remembered why they sound so familiar. Its the exact specs for the laptop Im on. I would not overclock this laptop as the cooling for this this is not good at all. Its not meant to be be heated that much. And hes right, dont use software to over clock, as it can be very unstable.

Ok, I forgot to mention that i installed new fans as the old ones were pretty crappy and they barely cool my laptop evan when forced to high speed these new fans are pretty fast (and noisy) if you turned on the fans and it wasnt installed in the computer it would probibly fly XD so I got good cooling and I cant overclock by using any other method but software

Ok well I saw this guide on a notebook site:-
Quote:
Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for what you do with your notebook, period.

1)Open ClockGen, make sure that "apply settings at startup" is unchecked in the options screen.

2)Choose a PLL from the drop down menu. Make sure that "ignore GSB/PCI" is checked. Select "Read" clocks and close PLL Setup

3)Open "PLL Control" and check to see if CPU, FSB, RAM are reading exactly correct. IF NOT than this is not the correct PLL, repeat starting at step 2 with the next PLL

4)Once you find a PLL that reads correct you can try a small overclock. It is still possible for a PLL that reads correct to be the wrong PLL. If you try a very small overclock and your system frezes or artifacts this is what has happened. Restart your computer and repeat starting at step 2 with the next PLL.

5)Once you find a PLL that reads correctly and allows you a small overclock you have found the correct PLL, write it down. You may continue standard overclocking. (slightly raise clock, test stability, repeat)

6)If you've gone thought all the PLL's an have not been able to overclock than your computer isn't capable of being software overclocked with Clockgen.

Once you are sure of your computers stability only then should you enable "apply settings at startup" in Clockgen's options.

Basically you can just go though all the PLLs 1 by 1 and see if any show the correct settings - If they do then that will be the correct 1.

Like I say however Clockgen is old and unstable, I would never recommend it.

You could build a cheap rig however with a Athlon x3/x4. That would be your best bet.

EDIT: Have you tried using BUKKIT to host your MC server instead of the vanilla one? It may work a lot better. Also are you getting lag? Does the server cannot keep up message carry on popping up? If you are just getting lag and the server cannot keep up message doesn't really show up it will be your/their internet.
