Overclocking A Laptop is A Bad Idea...
Heat - Laptops dont have the best heatsinks on them and most laptops only have 1 fan.
Bios - If you do deside you want to overclock you will have to search around your laptops bios for overclokcing options.
Overclock - You will need to research what other people have managed to get safely with as less heat output as possible.
I Noticed that this cpu's Clock speed is 1.5ghz And 2.4ghz with turbo , If you did you could leave turbo on its up to you and possible the max you will be able to get without over heating is around about 1.6ghz - 1.65ghz , And thats it .

If i were you i wouldn't overclock , but it is entierly up to you , If you do go ahead im not responsible for you breaking anything smile.gif

Should be quite possible to set its P0 state equal to the default turbo speed, using the same or a few steps
lower volts than the default volts of the default P0 state.
Don't forget to underclock too ; eg. 400 MHz at ~0.625 V

For overclocking beyond the turbo-speeds , 3+ GHz is easy , likely with ~0.2 V lower than the default voltage of the turbo state -
if you don't mind 80+ C temps (when not using any form of additional cooling*).
80 C is likely the point when the fan starts running at full speed.


* whether that be a cooling pad, bottle caps in the corners to raise the laptop a little,
or cutting away most of plastic from beside the heatsink and under the fan -
or taking the laptop apart to replace the thermal pads with better thermal paste.
