You cannot modify the bios's in dells, there is no way you are going to overclock it unless you use something like clockgen.

From what I know you can't find such a BIOS, but you can spend 20$ on a used mobo and replace the old one...

esupport.com will write custom bios for you for about $50 bucks. You can also download cpu-z and if your motherboard actually shows up as (example MSI 6714) you can try the bios for that but beware it may be a different revision or something and the bios will cause trouble. I know trying to find a bios from a manufactures website like dell, HP, or emachines can be almost impossible so you may not be able to reflash.

BTW, there is nothing wrong with that computer to qualify it as landfill material. It would make a fine addition to my folding farm.

Or you could give it to a charity. I know that many charities use donated PCs
to do their accounts, admin etc on. Try not to dump old PCs if possible .

Your best bet is to pick up a used and working motherboard to replace the one you've got. You've almost certainly got a proprietary PSU though, so you may need to obtain a better one, especially if you intend to o/c. Even if you use software to o/c your hardware from your OS (with the board you've got), you may well have stability issues and depending on how well you o/c, you may need to upgrade your PSU anyway, as Dell tend to only provide what the existing hardware will need and not much more, with PSUs...
