# 1 Lesson Laptops aren't made for overclocking with that being said

Your options would be upgrade the cpu itself

Add more ram /cooling pad to relive stress heat

Other then shy of just using it as a doorstop those are your options

Im sorry but most of the members here recomend against this .....

Just being up front and honest there would be no gain anyhow it is too old unless you plan on doing some upgrades

They shouldn't cost that much if anything if you look around old parts who knows

Also you can try cleaning it out with canned air to see if it improves ,I don't know exactly what you would want to do with it running win 7 but it is pretty limited with using certain things apps ect

#1 Guaranteed Fail? OCing a laptop. Laptops should really only be used for Web, Light duty apps, etc. Too much heat, not enough cooling, all kinds of bad things can go wrong here. Heck, you don't even have to OC a laptop to get cold solders. Just regular use is enough to kill most...

Silly laptop, OCing is for PCs.
