Welcome to OCN. Don't forget that you can edit your posts and to follow the forum rules!

You should put your hardware and operating system information into your profile so that we can help you out here.

If you are running an Intel processor you need to disable Intel Speedstep so your processor doesn't lower its multiplier when it's idling.

If you are running an AMD processor then you need to disable Cool n' Quiet.

You will be able to do this in your BIOS.

This thread is a good place to get started. If you're running AMD someone else here may be able to find you an AMD specific overclocking thread but, the majority of what you will find in this one is going to apply to getting started.

Also check your power settings in the Control Panel and make sure that they are set to high.
Biding My Time.
