But how to you clean it? I tried unscrewing everything but it didn't work out... I only have access to the CPU fan but not the GPU... I think the problem is the GPU, it gets sooo hot

I was reading over the thread and notice it said there are no options for overclocking with this laptop. I believe MemSet supports the chipset for tweaking memory timings, and I also thought setfsb or other overclocking software would work with the pm45 chipset. Anyone know if setfsb or anything will work with this? Or is there any cpu hardware mods? I am trading my sig system for an fx 7811 with a T9600 and just trying to see if I will be able to OC anything on it.

You dont have to be under warranty for a new keyboard. I got one shipped to me from gateway and I was way out of warranty. Just call them up

The only way to overclock the cpu is to buy an extreme cpu like the x7900 or x9000 and in your case the x9100. SetFSB might support your chipset but overclocking will cause your laptop to be unstable. Setting the FSB higher will increase your cpu speed but also your ram speed and most laptop ram are horrible overclockers. So... your cpu might be able to handle the overclocking but something else like ram will cause problems.

I believe it was free or just the shipping had to be paid which couldn't have been more then $30. It was almost 2 years ago btw

Newegg is a good place to get ram and hard drives. The cheapest place to get a good overclocking cpu is either the forums at notebookreview or ebay
