    Default New to Overclocking

    I'm new to overclocking and PC tweaking. My G/F just bought a Gateway AMD Turion 64 laptop and I'm looking to get a little more preformance out of it, alas I have been out of the whole PC scene for so long I dont know where to start. I already went into bios to see if I could bump up the MHs a bit but this bios wont let me do it. SO.................where is a good place to go read up on overclocking and start learning this stuff.

    Laptops and overclocking are not generally a good combination. Overclocking involves increased heat generation that requires proper and increased airflow to remove. A lot of laptops are already pushing the heat limit without adding to the problem. I'm guessing that frying your G/Fs computer is prolly not a good idea. Your best bet for increased program speed is to tweak the operating system itself by removing any extra programs that run in the background. Check out the tweak guide at http://www.tweakguides.com/TGTC.html
