2nd off. TBH. no matter the speed improvements you don't want to OC your lappy! The cooling in it is already keeping the processor at the bronk of overheat all the time. I OC'd my lappy, it' overheated, damaged the chip and had to replace the entire laptop.

Seriously. I'm regretting not taking the advice i was given, lol.


You might want to ask around here further if it's possible to upgrade to a higher class/clocked chip w/o exceeding the thermal limits of your laptop.

In my experience getting a heftier battery and upgrading the RAM goes a long ways.


edit: I just read up on the specs of ur lappy really quick. I don't know how much RAM you have and some otehr samll details since they differ from model to model. BUT! A 2.2Ghz Turion x2 is no slouch! and 200m integrated isn't great, but it could be intel worse.

If you have 1x1GB of RAM see if you can find it's model and pair it up w/ another. if you have 2x512 or 2x anything other than 1GB sticks try investing in a 2x1GB kit. You wouldn't think it'd make a big difference, It does. lol.

I have no idea if this is improved capacity over your current one but it'll at least give ya an idea as to what to look for: http://www.brilliantstore.com/acer_l..._bl_5723l.html

I just thought I'd share me 2 Dinar w/ my experience on this topic....

There is no real "overclocking" possible w/ Acer Aspire 5050, though I could get some performance boost w/ powerstrip. Could get a minescule 101 MhZ increase....from 300 to 401. Never managed to find PLL for my lappie for clockgen overclock....

Anyway, however, I recieved some VERY pleasing result when I used this utility called mobility modder.

http://www.techbeta.org/hardware/ati-mobility-modder/

One MAJOR issue of GOAT In this card is the laptop driver. NEVER could find an upgrade for it and it's seriously outdated and abandoned. Using this tool, I could get latest drivers 4 catalyst and thankfully, mobility modder supports the ati 1100x which comes with it

Before i installed this app (Windows 7 ultimate btw), even w/ powerstrip I tried running BF2 it would play on lo-res but crash after 10-20 sec or FPS would drop, but after this fix, and getting latest driver from ati and moddin' it w/ this nifty lil tool, I can now play BF-2 stably albeit on lo-res.

On windows 7 ultimate I had issues w/ power strip, in sense it would sometimes say "your clock is abnormally reading" and clockspeed would b at 100 Mhz. Didn't notice a diff there but when I watched the hi-res divx movies, it lagged sort-a. U just gotta keep loading profiles till it somehow mysteriously get fix if this happens

Hey I am no lap ace or any ace, just shared my experience so far w/ my lap... my point was has anyone w/ this lap used mobility modder and updated latest driver for gfx card? instead of stick on 2 one which came w/ lap and try "overclocking" etc...? I have yet to find a good overclocking tool which supports integrated notebook gfx card.
