in short, you cant overclock the HP.

Since the motherboard is an ASUS, it MAY be possible to flash the bios

you can o/c with software, but at that route, you could cause damage to other components, best bet would be to not o/c the pavilion

Due to the Laptops Motherboard Overclocking in the BIOS isnt Possible. However software overclocking is through Windows. However due to the size of a laptop Air flow is VERY poor ..Thus cooling isnt good. Laptops get hot as it is. Overclocking will add to the heat and can lead to component failure.

The board it uses is a modified P5B made for HP by Asus. It might be possible to flash it if you can find which of the P5B's its based on, but if you do that your recovery media won't work anymore and you could pontentially mess up your pc. Its probably not worth it.

Probably wasn't any. I have the same mobo, it seems, and everything is locked. You can only get the bios from HP anyways.
