Overclocking an OEM computer, and Notebooks in particular, is almost always a bad idea. These systems lack just about everything necessary for safe and effective overclocking. Overclocking means more heat and in the confined space of a Notebook it is very difficult to dissipate. Manufacturers are well aware of this and usually omit the necessary settings from the BIOS.

Overclocking such a system may be possible but but the risks are high and the results rarely satisfactory. It is a job for an expert looking for a challenge and willing to accept the considerable risks.

Overclocking is best confined to custom built computers where you control the quality and specifications of the components.

Overclocking might void your warranty. Also you probably will barely even notice a difference.

It is usually not possible to overclock a laptop/notebook because you have no access to the clock multiplier, or base clock frequency in a laptop. So in that sense, there is really no way to do it.

This is actually a good thing, because it keeps you from frying the laptop by the extra heat generated in overclocking. You need serious cooling to do anything more than a token overclock. A laptop just can't cool the CPU enough as it is to keep it from wearing out prematurely, overclocking it would just kill it very quickly.

The short answer: No you can't overclock a laptop. It would fall under option #2 in my sig.
