You cannot modify the bios's in dells, there is no way you are going to overclock it unless you use something like clockgen.

From what I know you can't find such a BIOS, but you can spend 20$ on a used mobo and replace the old one...

esupport.com will write custom bios for you for about $50 bucks. You can also download cpu-z and if your motherboard actually shows up as (example MSI 6714) you can try the bios for that but beware it may be a different revision or something and the bios will cause trouble. I know trying to find a bios from a manufactures website like dell, HP, or emachines can be almost impossible so you may not be able to reflash.<br />

BTW, there is nothing wrong with that computer to qualify it as landfill material. It would make a fine addition to my folding farm.

</div>Or you could give it to a charity. I know that many charities use donated PCs <br />
to do their accounts, admin etc on. Try not to dump old PCs if possible <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> .<br />

Your best bet is to pick up a used and working motherboard to replace the one you've got. You've almost certainly got a proprietary PSU though, so you may need to obtain a better one, especially if you intend to o/c. Even if you use software to o/c your hardware from your OS (with the board you've got), you may well have stability issues and depending on how well you o/c, you may need to upgrade your PSU anyway, as Dell tend to only provide what the existing hardware will need and not much more, with PSUs...<br />
