Processor Speed

Hi, don't know if this is in the right section or not sorry if it's not

I tried to play Halo 2 on my laptop, but I got this message when trying to Run it.

The processor speed on this computer is too low to run Halo 2 for Windows Vista.
Your computer's processor speed: 1300 Megahertz (1500 or higher required)

Is their anyway I could change increase my Processor speed to 1500 to be able to play this?

Thanks for any help

Short answer is no sadly.

99% of Laptops Bios do not allow for overclocking in any way, and also it's not recommended for laptops even if you could. The cooling in laptops is usually only just good enough for stock speeds, and any increase in this will cause big issues.

No worries, sorry it's not the answer you wanted to hear. But you wouldn't want to fry your laptop to play a game that's for sure.
