Compaq Attack....

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have a Compaq Presario SR1303WM, Its running a AMD Sempron 3000+ and of course theres no overclocking options nor is there anything for boosting my voltage in the bios. I tried looking into SoftFSB, CPUFSB and a few other OC'ing programs but they dont have the presets in there drop down boxes that match my mainboard nor my PLL Heres what i have..

Board: ASUSTek Computer INC. Kelut 2.02
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 3.15 06/06/2005


I ran SIW (good lil program for diagnostics) it says that my motherboards max capacity is 3000 MHz im running 1999.9 MHz. Im loaded w/ ram, cooling system is already installed.... i dont mind the risks i have another comp w/ the same mobo and all. I know that Sempron come out as a "budget" chip, but i also know that there hella clockers, i just wanna put this 1 to the test, mainly for gaming.
Ive been to a zillion forums...majorgeeks.com, techsupportforum.com etc, etc....there "moderators" just aint gotta clue i guess...im not a newby, i know my way around a PC....what i dont know is how to OC this thing, something learned is something earned........hope u guys can help, (no else could)..thx in advance

The BIOS is more than likely "locked;" many, if not all, major computer companies to this.

Yep already knew that.......Most retail computer manufacturers (Dell, HP, Compaq, etc) use motherboards and BIOSes that do not support overclocking, which means.......my only chance is overclocking via the PLL..now comes the good part...."HOW"?...there issa way, ive read about a chit-ton of ppl doing all over the google and yahoo world, theres nothing that says how they did it...........the only other way that i know is to pin mod, Pin-Modding lets me do one of 2 things unlock the multiplier on my CPU, or unlock the FSB/Up the FSB Speed.
unlocking the multiplier died out with the Athlon XP's a few years back. Unlocking FSB/Upping FSB speed is where it's at now..... By using a hair-thin wire in the socket between 2 certain pins, you can 'short' them out, and the motherboard reads the cpu at a much higher FSB giving you an instant 33-50% boost in speed, depending upon the model. pentium M's r great for that but i dont think my Sempron will handle that much of a boost w/ out the voltage being modified....so now im back to .....via PLL......

Unfotunately The Mad Mule said it. Your BIOS is locked. The easiest and BEST way to overclock is through BIOS and yours is locked since its an OEM board. Your BEST bet would be to get an aftermarket board for it and overclock with the new board. Software overclocking is a MASSIVE FAIL unfortunately. It almost always will prove to be unstable. However I for one have been lucky and got my Celery 352 (3.2GHz) up to 4.5GHz on a software OC stable. However I also had an aftermarket board that allowed RAM adjustments in BIOS (that was all it allowed).

You can try all the software overclocking utilities out there, and I'll put money to it that you would be LUCKY to gain a 100-200MHz OC...IF YOUR LUCKY. And that's not worth the effort as you won't see any performance increase at all. If you get an aftermarket board, that Sempron should reach some decent speeds such as 2.6+GHz.

Hope this helped, sorry for the bad news .

You can try ClockGen but don't expect too much...

I don't think that even works on OEM boards.

Oh, and note that if you change your motherboard, you need to buy a new windows key (that is, if you're using the key that came with the compaq PC).

PS: Nice, Duckie, hitting 1800 rep.

already tried clockgen......still the same results, very lil performance jump, or it couldnt match my PLL, hard to remember which 1 did what i tried so many of them..........i guess i just gotta go get a mobo that i can boost in the bios i guess, but that kinda crashes the prupose, if i buy a mobo i might as well buy 1 thats big enough to do all my chores so i wont have to OC....lol..........thx guys

Your motherboard has nothing at all to do with speed man. The motherboard will only offer you different BIOS options. What I'm personally suggesting you try is getting a motherboard that's the same socket as your current one, and JUST replacing the motherboard. Still use your Sempron, your RAM, all that stuff, just get a motherboard (and a video card if you don't already have one). Then you'll be able to overclock that puppie and be fine. Or you can just build a whole new rig...but that costs a lot of money whereas just a board is very little money. The choice is up to you. If you don't know what socket you're currently on, we can help you get that info .

guess thats what ill do....as for the socket......this is what im getting from SIW...



CPUAMD Athlon XP
Cpu SocketSocket A
Processor UpgradeZIF Socket
Max CPU Speed3000 MHz

sound right?..........ill get that motherboard and get back w/ u guys.....any suggestions on a good motherboard to get.......thx
post #10 of 18
Oh, ouch! Socket A. Good luck finding one unfortunately. Best to check eBay. I had great luck with a Chaintech 7NJL1 back in the day. But those are extremely rare anymore. I also had a Chaintech 7NJL3 that overclocked my 2600 (1.92) up to 2.3GHz. It wasn't too shabby, but it lacked really good RAM settings and voltages. Name brands...man I couldn't tell you to be honest. Socket A is so old anymore, not many people run it. I've personally got 2 Socket A rigs very much alive and kicking....but you won't find a NEW motherboard. I can almost promise that. I was thinking you were on 754 or 939 (still hard to find, but can be found quite easily).
