I have a AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 1.65GHz I was wondering if I could overclock it at all.
Thanks

Overclocking a netbook or laptop is a thoroughly bad idea. These systems lack just about everything required for safe and effective overclocking. One of these being heat which is often a problem even at stock speeds. Manufacturers are well aware of this and leave out the necessary settings from the BIOS. This saves you from failures and them from the resulting warranty claims.

While it may be possible to overclock a netbook the results are unlikely to be satisfactory and the risks high.
Overclocking is best confined to home built systems where you control the specifications and quality of the components used.

Does the netbook's BIOS even provide options for overclocking?

I have the same Laptop only thing you can do for it is add ram that's it

You try to overclock it and you are in trouble it plays low end games fine it will not play newer games so overclocking would be a waste of time

Only tittle that is with in about 4 years or more old will work like a dream and keep constant frame rates the newer games are just not going to work example resident evil 4 is one of the games it can play with decent frame rates

BTW The Laptop is in my specs

I don't have any specific knowledge of this system but I would very much doubt it. Very few OEM systems provide such settings.
When a non-OEM motherboard is built the CPU and other hardware that will be used with it is unknown. The buyer may also have specific and unusual needs so the BIOS must be able to accommodate all of this. None of these considerations apply to an OEM board and even less for a laptop. In a laptop the full hardware specifications are known in detail and are unchangeable. Only the most basic BIOS settings are needed.

Why would a manufacturer provide advanced, unneeded, and potentially dangerous BIOS settings that may cause failures for the user and result in expensive warranty claims? In todays highly competitive market it just wouldn't make sense.
