Default Overclock laptop CPU

I know that this isn't reccomended but my laptop is really struggling at playing games. It has a 256MB GeForce 8400M GS and its integrated so I can't upgrade it. The CPU is a Core 2 Duo T5670 @ 1.8GHZ and I want to push it to 2.0GHz. How would I do this, is there an application to do this as I can't use the BIOS. The laptop is a Dell Vostro 1510. Thanks for any help.

i doubt ocing the processor will do much. Your laptop is struggling cause of the integrated.

And if you do oc (i doubt you can because you usually can't mess with dell bios) your laptop will burn like a mofo

tbh the oc from 1.8 to 2ghz isnt going to make any difference and could potentially invalidate your warranty not to say the least damage the laptop
besides which you cant oc the dell anyway i dont think there are any overclocking apps that would support laptop chip sets

200 Mhz isn't gonna make any noticeable difference with the 8400 limiting you. If you must, SetFSB.
