Overclocking newb...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay. I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5837. I'm unsure what the chipset is and the overclocking option is disabled in the BIOS menu. I'm trying to get ahold of a hacked BIOS so I can unlock this option and overclock my processor to about say, 2.5-3.00 GHz which should be in a perfectly safe range. Please anyone that would know how to get ahold of this let me know.

the processor will overheat, thats the reason they lock the bios, Overclocking on a laptop is a no no.

i runs very cool already and i had an older toshiba and had it overclocked to 1.3 GHz, it was a 2004 model i'm pretty sure, minimum cooling and it rarely overheated, i think it was overclocked from 1.0 GHz, not 100% sure, i do know that dells have a program provided by dell TO overclock the processors in them, i just want to run it a tad faster without buying more ram, i often max out the processor which is why i want to overclock it at least a quarter of a GHz

Theres a reason someone already said overclocking is a no no on a laptop. Also, saying that your older laptop RARELY overheated says it did overheat. Wake up and smell the burning CPU. Probably killed half of that CPU's life.

the laptop is STILL working in perfect condition it just needs a new fan from it being on so often, it's 4 years old and i only upgraded to the laptop i'm currently using because the fan is starting to die from overusage and it's really loud and annoying, i'd like someone to find me the hacked BIOS so i can do it simpler than attempting to plug my cPU into another laptop (dell) instead of telling me your personal opinions, i'm not the only one that's done this and/or wanted this before i'm sure

Yeah so I suggest that you dont oc that unless u want to shell out the money for a new one. Your best bet for a good laptop would be to build on yourself.
And whats your Cpu and mobo?
