push the turbo button? *****.. mine had one, but it went from 33mhz to 66... never could figure out who didnt just leave that button pushed... unless you didnt like the orange light.. haha<br>
if you could post some screens of the bios, i would love it. not sure what i can do to help, but it would be nostalgic <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Actually most of the old pcs pentium and lower didn't usually have overclocking options in the bios. You had to move jumpers around to set the FSB and multiplier manually, or do some soldering if the board doesn't have any jumpers.

You'll have to use jumpers and or soldering techniques to overclock that relic.

Hey mate, I found a Pentium MMX 180 in my basement the other day and guess what? I OCed it right away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> but mine had some jumpers and I managed to lift the FSB from 60 to 75! Cool, huh?<br>
The mobo has even voltage adjustments for the CPU, but I didn't have to use them, it's perfectly stable @225MHz on stock voltage. Wanna know what the stock voltage is? <b>2.8V!!!</b> Good old days...

lmao! My old P2 350Mhz had that same bios. I remember it did have overclocking options in the bios but it was only like one or two speeds above stock. I pushed it up one notch and it went from 350 to like 420 or something. I then tried the next and final notch and it wouldnt post. I dont think this helps u but i thought i would let u know.

Well i've turned it on , and i've realised i have post the picture of the wrong BIOS.<br>
It is like this one:<a href="http://static.flickr.com/45/119497902_7de81ba772_m.jpg" target="_blank">http://static.flickr.com/45/119497902_7de81ba772_m.jpg</a><br>
Even after 14 years it still boots windos in 1 minute!<br>
Faster than my Pentium 3!!!!!!!!!!!<br>
It's processor cooler is passive- (ool<br>
And it only has ISA slots , its also has VIA chips all over it , and i can't find the HD.<br>
Ill look for jumpers...

Definately look around the mobo for little switches/jumpers and sometimes theres some stuff written on the mobo, normally pointing you to which switches/jumpers do what. I have an old k6-2 that I recently pulled out and overclocked 100mhz just by reading all the little box's of info on the motherboard and turning up the cpu multiplier. Took it from 350mhz to 450, temps are still good- wish it would have settings to go further. I had an ol 486 but it's in storage or trash, or I'd definately break it out to see if theres anythingelse that would help.

it has 2 hard drives that look like the ones that laptops use 2.5", and they're under the PSU ( not very inteligent!)<br>
But i can´t seem to find the jumpers...
