Overclocking in Sony Vaio

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have Sony Vaio VGN-NR290E with Intel GM965 chipset.When i run games like NFS-Most Wanted and Carbon the graphics are choppy.So i was wondering if the graphics could be overclocked.If so can u give me the detailed steps and also what r the risks.

Thank You.

Overclocking a laptop is too dangerous, i think you can but there will always be a risk of overheating the CPU and burning it, seriously I dont reccomend it.

A laptop is not for gaming...

Keep the settings on low and stomach it. Unless if u want to do some upper difficulty modding to add a better cooling structure to the laptop.

I disagree with the comments about OC a notebook. I have overclocked CPU for 2 years notebook is fine. I have recently started OC GPU on my new notebook. Common sense and monitoring temps are critical. There are methods to control heat. Likely many threads on that. No point in over explaining.

That said, to OP I do not have good news for you. Looked up your specs. First off what you describe is usually GPU not CPU issue. As such OC CPU has little to no benefit. 2nd it looks like you have X3100 IGP so you are using system RAM not onboard. I am aware of AMD/ATI and Nvidia tools but nothing for the Intel X3100.

Your problem is your GPU it is not a gaming card.

Can you turn down settings? AA is one of the first I would disable and maybe lower resolution as low as 800x600?

More info on your system and settings you are playing at might help.

I had a Gateway w/IGP so I feel your pain. If you want more info on OC/UV I will have a look.

Yes it is possible to OC a notebook but frankly, theres no (realistic) possibility of upgrading the cooling and all the OC'ing will be done thru software in the OS which is kind of the half-assed way of doing it. That being said even if you were to OC the CPU and/or GPU, it would be a very minimal increase and would not magically make the game run smoothly.

A laptop is for portability, teh interwebz and media, not gaming!
