Windows 7: Overclocking an Integrated GPU.

Overclocking an Integrated GPU.

I have a not-so-bad laptop. it has a 2.10 Intel Dual-core Processor, 4 gb of RAM...

and an Integrated Intel mobile chipset family series 4 GPU with 64 mb of dedicated ram.

And there's my problem with this computer. If only I could increase the ram or its overall power somehow...
but apparently I can't because of reasons. the only good way is through the BIOS, but that doesn't work on my computer because it's not on my BIOS to change. Overclocking programs such as EVGA Precision X and MSI Afterburner don't work on my computer because it's an Integrated GPU and because the internet said it's not possible. But there must be way, a way to at least par up those mere 64 mb to something more equivalent to the less anaemic specs my processor and RAM have. So please, if there's anything I can try, please help me out here.

Welcome to the forum.

Overclocking a laptop (or any OEM system for that matter) is a thoroughly bad idea. They lack virtually everything needed for safe and effective overclocking. Manufacturers are well aware of this and have omitted the settings in the BIOS necessary for overclocking. This protects you from failures and them from the resulting warranty claims. Overclocking is best limited to home built systems where you control the specifications and quality of the components used.

The real problem isn't the 64 MB dedicated RAM but the limited features and performance of the integrated video. Laptops are not game machines and there is really nothing you can do to make it so.

You can't overclock an Integrated GPU whether its a laptop or on a desktop. You can however overclock a discrete GPU from a laptop but I don't recommend doing it because it may fail at any times.

Laptops, notebook, netbooks and other portable computing devices have this one thing in common. They have a problem dissipating heat. Over clocking produces extra heat that can't be dissipated with these types of devices. Even if you could over clock it would not be a good thing to do.

They get hot enough as it is.

You can overclock and IGPU on a desktop depending on your bios. Will edit with a screen shot in a few.

Edit..
Rather than post a screenshot of my bios, look at this thread. Scroll down to overclocking the IGPU

In these days Onboard GPUs can be overclocked, but in LGA 775's years it was impossible because it would be point less to overclock a northbridge chipset(GPU) because of its smaller heatsink size.

I would not recommend trying to overclock a laptop. There just is not enough cooling to make it viable, even, if you did succeed it would get so hot you risk damaging the components and eventually it won't work at all. If that didn't happen the laptop would keep cutting out (if it has a heat cut out) or you would have to stop using it to allow it to cool down.

The risks far outweigh the benefits of OC'ing a laptop. Unfortunately being slower is something a laptop just 'is' it cannot be changed.

My two cents

I agree with the above. I would not OC the IGPU on a laptop.

The IGPU is part of the CPU die, except for the IRIS Pro series coming out soon. I overclock mine a little. The option(s) usually don't exist in the OEM laptop BIOS as already mentioned. They do it for reason. There may be an option to increase video memory but I can't see your BIOS options.
