    did you know that "vaio rx 305 overclock" is a not-quite-genuine googlewhack?
    At least it was when I did it - just 1 result, in a foreign language at that. (not counting "sponsored links" of course.)

    That alone, would lead me to believe the task you are attempting is going to be a bit difficult.

    System manufacturers these days are making more and more effort to keep the user away from the internal workings.
    This cuts down on support costs a good deal. With the price wars and declining numbers of system buyers, any costs they can trim will really help in being one of the lasting PC makers. There has been a huge thinning of the herd the last couple of years now.

    Expect it to become even more difficult to tweak OEM PC's in the future.

    I'm not saying your goal is impossible, but it will not be as simple as adjusting the BIOS like an aftermarket (that's not quite the word I'm looking for?) motherboard & BIOS.

    Good luck with your goal!

    Hey!
    I didn't say give up?

    I just said it wasn't maybe quite that easy.
    Are there jumpers on the motherboard for the FSB?

    If so, you may be able to produce a mild overclock, but without the additional options for PCI and RAM timings, etc. you would find in a good OC'ers motherboard, it probably won't be a whole lot.

    As to the laptop, yeah, about a 98.9% chance you should just let that one go.

    And in both, a good OS tweaking and trimming won't hurt a bit to gain a bit of performance.

    Your hard drive is also a candidate if you are looking for enhanced performance. You could replace it with a 7200rpm, 8mb cache drive.
