Try software(coolbits,rivatuner) to overclock....just push that card until you get artifacts. I can't think of more safe way to oc it

When I OC my Graphics card I find where I get artifacts and then go 5 MHz lower just to stay safe. I may seem anal but I dont have the money to be buying new stuff all the time. Good luck with what you find works though

I wouldn't recommend setting as high as it will go and wait for artifacts, then bring it down 5mhz. I think u should do this to start with but then bring it down 20mhz and run it at full load for at least 20minutes. If there are no artifacts at all, then maybe bring it up 5 more mhz and try again, but no higher than that. Laptops have very poor cooling, so you don't want to make that video card much hotter than it already is.
