Want to overclock trough BIOS

Hello, I want to overclock my CPU and GPU trough BIOS. The problem is, since i installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (clean install) my BIOS is diffrent : Want to overclock trough BIOS-photo0156.jpg
On windows XP (previos OS) i had a normal bluescreen typed BIOS with all the settings. Now on this BIOS there aren't any settings for overclocking ,actually there almost aren't any settings at all..... because i want to overclock my CPU i need the other BIOS . Any sugestions ? . And before you say, yes i have tried OC software, but i cant chage the settings because of the BIOS.

The bios has nothing to do with the OS; it's independent, so 7 didn't change or alter it in any way. If it's different, that's something you had to have done. Aside from the fact that HP, like most OEM's, locks their bios' so you can't really overclock, it's a bad idea trying to OC a laptop.

In my view, i would'nt go down the thrid party route, unless its specifically created for a particular motherboard type/brand (i.e. Asus AI Suite for Asus motherboard).

OC Software could easily corrupt your PC or worse.

And, as said in a previous post, don't OC a lappy, the heat that it would produce would not be healthy at all and could, again, corrupt your laptop or worse.

My 10 pence worth,

Lucky

OK, let's try a different approach. Is this what you want to end up with?




Laptops are not designed to dissipate all the added heat that goes along with overclocking. They simply don't have the room necessary for the extra heatsinks and fans overclocking requires. What you have is a machine that, in all likelihood, runs too warm as it is. Don't compound the problem. You may get a slight fps increase in your games; however, you will severely reduce the life of the machine... and by that I mean guys with the same notions as you have reduced their machines to a pile of junk in a few short months.

Don't do it. If you want to get into overclocking, build yourself a machine.

Thnx. Can you tell me how to build a rig that can get atleast 50 fps on maxed out Crysis (and ain't that expensive to build). Thanks again .

You can buy all your parts on sale if you want; I built my computer for ~$600. To get 50fps on maxed out Crysis you would need a very powerful GPU either a HD5850 or a gtx470 would do, correct me if I'm wrong. However, IMO, Crysis is not a very good game to base your wants on, you're better off choosing games that you would enjoy rather than being able to play Crysis and not enjoy it.
