To overclock your CPU press the Delete key repeatly to go to the BIOS. If you cna't see the BIOS screen try pressing F2, F10, F8, or anything else that can get you to the BIOS screen. Once there use the arrow keys and the RETURN/ENTER key to change a setting. Search around and look for something similiar to this "Clock Speed, Core Speed, FSB (Front Side Bus) Frequency, PCI Frequency.
This setting means how much data is transfered between your motherboard and CPU so faster data transfer can speed up your CPU.
Also a setting called "Multiplier" multiplies your FSB speed to get a Internal Clock Speed so FSB x Multiplier = Internal Clock Speed
A Pentium 4 may have a 133 MHz FSB and a 23 multiplier so it would have a total of 3.06 GHz speed.
So mainly to overclock your CPU is to change these settings higher.
Since Intel Motherboards locked the "multiplier" setting, this means the only way to overclock your computer is to change the FSB setting. Change the setting by 1 MHz increments each time. Reboot and play a game or surf the Internet for a hour or so. If any errors occur just switch back to the original setting. If there are no errors keep increasing the FSB by 1 MHz increments until your PC is not stable. While overclocking you may want to check your CPU temperature to make sure your CPU does not burn or overheat. You can check it by using a software called EVEREST found here:

If your CPU goes over 60 C DO NOT OVERCLOCK ANY HIGHER!
If your computer is below 60 C and you still want to overclock but your computer became unstable if you overclock anymore change a setting called "CPU Voltage, Core Voltage" or anything similiar to that. The more voltage you have the more power you CPU uses so increase the voltage setting by 0.01-0.1V each time until your computer is stable again. But increasing the voltage increases CPU temperature dramatically so change your FSB and Voltage wisely. If your computer will not boot after an overclock, open your computer case and look on your motherboard and find jumpers that you can flick and turn. Clear it put back the case in and your done.
Hope this helps

Hey Tawny,

I'm not familiar with that particular mobo, but as long as it's not like a Dell, or Gateway, or a manufacturers build. Then you can almost always change the FSB and the CPU voltage.
Check the manual, it might also have a special like cntrl+F1 key combo to get to advanced bios settings. Mine does. I don't see it in the regular bios. I have to press cntrl+F1.
Just check your manual or go to google and find the online manual for your mobo. ok?
