Looking around it seems that its an AMI Bios, and its locked up so you cant change the settings.

Did you buy this prebuilt? If so thats probably why.

They had the same issue.

Check here http://www.ami.com/support/bios.cfm
And see if you can update and get it working, not sure if they have any update to help you overclock or not, its worth a try.

Update to the last BIOS, you may have an older BIOS that doesn't have all the options enabled.

I have a HP prebuilt desktop.
Did a BIOS flash yesterday using a utility i downloaded from HP (which might also have this feature blocked)

All i know that my board is MSI , went to there website didnt find processer family that i have ( LGA 775, intel Q33)
CPUid says that its model is "0AB8" nothing similar on MSI.
Any ideas of how to unlock it in the BIOS?

Thanks !

I'm using a Q8300 with an Asus board and I have no trouble accessing advanced features. I did build it myself though.

As already stated, don't even bother overclocking on a prebuilt.

#1 The OEM has purposely locked the BIOS to prevent overclocking
#2 The cooling on prebuilts sucks so much it's not worth the effort anyway, even if you could overclock

Solution: Build your own computer or get a new motherboard.

Well.. for one, I would never buy pre-built. But, disregarding that, overclocking a store-bought eMachine or whatever is not going to go far.

It's a locked BIOS, and if you re-flash with an OEM BIOS then you will lose the BIOS code that your windows is locked to. You're stuck mate.
