It is not generally recommended to try overclocking laptops, notebooks, and netbooks. Due to their small size and limited cooling arrangements, even a small increase in the running frequency of the CPU might be too much, with the consequence of the computer overheating. For this reason, the overclocking functions in the BIOS in mobile computers are usually limited to enabling or disabling Cool'n'Quiet (or its equivalent). Some don't even offer that.
