Overclocking an Acer TravelMate 242LC?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have put an extra gig of ram in it as you can see from my system specs below and it has an aluminium fan-driven cooling plate underneath it but still, is it wise to even bother trying to overclock this laptop?

You shouldn't try to overclock laptops. You get tons of instability, heat, and overall frustration. Just leave it alone.
