The "lock" you're speaking of is based on the BIOS on the motherboard. Most motherboards from commercial computers either simply do not have overclocking options available in the BIOS, or those options are locked out. There has been some limited success with flashing a new BIOS to boards from commercial computers, though BIOSes are very specific to the boards they're on, so it would take a fair amount of research and luck to find one that would work for your board.

The only option typically in your situation is to overclock with a software overclocking tool. Those are usually motherboard specific as well, so you'll need to find one that works with your motherboard.
