Searching around the net shows that the CPU is soldered onto the motherboard for that particular laptop. It's not designed for anything hardcore or games in the slightest.

Also, I wouldn't even attempt to overclock it. I'd rather add an SSD and make the system as snappy as possible. Overclocking the CPU won't really help you all that much in the long run. tongue.gif
