Toshiba A300 Overclock Help - PLL Number?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there, i have a Toshiba A300 Satellite Laptop that i really want to overclock (CPU), ive done some research and have tried using both ClockGen and SetFSB, to find the pll number of my laptop (trial and error method) however none of the plls seem to work frown.gif i might have just missed it but pretty much all of them give an error or crash my PC and the ones that dont crash or give an error crash when i try to use them to overclock.

so my question is, can it be done? does anyone know the pll already?
i really dont want to take my laptop apart and ive also tried using SisSoftware Sandra but that didn't work either.
also spare me a lecture please as i know the risks of what im doing and have made my mind up that i am going to do it.

on a side note, i finally managed to overclock the GPU by 200MHZ but the performance seems like it got a tiny bit worse!?
it could just be coincidence though. any advice?

also why are you not OCing with the bios?

Unless you know what your talking about and his Toshiba is some high end gaming laptop, i would post a doubl-u tee eff comment. Laptops usually never let you OC in the bios from the factory.
