HP computer, forget about it as the bios is locked (or at least the settings needed aren't available) for overclocking.

Just lending confirmation that the prepackaged computers from HP, Dell and such do indeed lock out all of these settings. I'm afraid you would have to change the motherboard to make any progress with this.

Windows 7 Ultimate on a Celeron sytem with 256MB RAM! Dude, forget about overclocking, start by upgrading your RAM to at least 1G!

I concur, don't bother until you do a complete hardware upgrade.
Have you considered building your own system? (not that difficult).
