if you are still confused then post back.
The computer was package built by time and originally running on win 98 but i have upgraded it to xp with 256mb ram, can it be over clocked because it has some switches on the mother board that cinfigures the cpu speed/voltage or wotever it may be

you MAY be able to overclock but i wont promise anything. some jumpers may be to set the cpu frequency to a certain number when moved. can you give any more details on eactley what these jumpers are called.
have you tried going into the BIOS and looking for cpu frequency. i dont suspect it will be there but there is no harm in looking.

well 1stly download si - soft sandra and use the motherboard section to see what type of board u have.. then seach google to see if u can get a manual. in the manual there should be a jummper section just play about with them. am pesonall thinkin that u'll only be able to get about 20% push before it fires like

'Before it fires' that doesn't sound too healthy, wot happens after it 'fires' and how can i prevent it and still overclock?

Solution = Build a new computer
You're more than likely wasting your time trying to OC a package computer.
