Trying to overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi
I am trying to oc my laptop but the bios is locked so it wont let me do it from there, but it has an amibios bios chip in it. If I change this with another chip from another comp that lets you access the advanced settings will it work or will it just screw up my comp?
By the way cooling is no problem as I sit the laptop on a custom water cooler.

any help please.

if you changed the bios chip your laptop would not boot, laptops will nto OC as they are prebuilt and prebuild manufacturers allways lock the bios's. not to mention the excess heat that would create in a laptop.

Just to clarify, overclocking a laptop is very risky and can cause damage to it. Doing what you are suggesting is very very risky and the chance of success is extremely low. There is a small chance that the BIOS chip will interface and operate with the computer if it is the correct type. If you use an incorrect BIOS chip and it uses its settings then it may cause damage to the computer if it uses incorrect settings or it can not read the components correctly. I think this is a bad idea and you may risk serious physical harm to your laptop

Overclocking via software is your best and safest option if you want to risk overclocking at all

Good overclocking software:
  • CPUFSB
  • SoftFSB
  • SetFSB
  • ClockGen
