    Well is there any suck utility that would let me overclock my CPU without entering the BIOS?

    I'm affraid there isn't much you can do with that compaq. Unfortunatly I don't know of a piece of software that will let you OC it :shrug:

    Well I even upgraded the BIOS, but it still is limited so I cant do anything.

    That's a typical problem with compaq's and other mass produced computers, or so I've been told anyway. If you're desperate to OC, i'd recomenend a new mobo. :)

    I have sucessfully used CPUFSB http://www.podien.onlinehome.de/CPUFSB.HTM with my Compaq mobo. You will need to find out what motherboard was used in your system to use it though. .... took me several hours of research to find out what mine is. http://www.motherboards.org/ is a good place to find the answer you seek ... maybe. Good luck.

    Edit: don't expect to see too much improvement and be carefull not to cook anything.

    SoftFSB is another that may work but none of these will allow voltage increases which will stabilise the overclock.

    It doesnt list Compaq as an option? It's not on the motherboard list..

    The motherboard will not be a Compaq ... therein lies the identification problems. Compaq buys mobos from other companys and uses them in their systems. My mobo for instance is based on the FIC AZ11 as far as I've been able to determine. It was produced for Compaq and does not have all of the options or parts of the original mobo design (stripped down version = cheaper than the FIC branded mobo). You need to find out just what was used in your system.

    Well I used SiSoftware Sandra and it told me that my motherboard was a Compaq 077ch? It didn't give any other name..

    Not a big surprise ... mine is an 06E4H according to Sandra. You may be able to get more clues by looking at the mobo itself to see if it has a name or number that equates to a known motherboard. Use google to search out whatever clues you find and eventually you may be sucessful. http://www.motherboards.org/articles...des/910_1.html may give you some other starting points.
