Wouldn't recommend overclocking anything, laptops run hot enough as is. I really doubt you're going to get crysis running on that thing regardless of how far you OC it anyhow...

Well.... forgive me for being noobish im just trying to satisfy my curiousity why can u oc a msi wind and not my inspiron? I dont think hw has anything to do with it.... my bios has no fsb options but i heard that even if you dont have an unlocked bios that there was software that changed the fsb within windows... i was wondering what software i should use and how i should use it...
Thanks

unlocking locked bios isnt my specialty.

but id imagine you would have to flash your bios to an unlocked version perhaps?

hopefully someone else here can shed more light on this.
