Hello Hanad.

I'm sure the lappy BIOS is factory locked and there will be no option to OC anything.

Have a look through this information linked below, perhaps some of it will help speed things up.

Don't bother, overclocking the GPU will kill off your laptop really easily, a cooler won't do much... Besides, you won't get much improvement in games. The 8200M just won't cut it sadly...

What's the name of this certain App? It had a black background/GUI, and it could tweak parts of W7, like disabling the Watermark, adding the "Take Control" thing on right-click menus, enabling DreamScenes, etc.
