Arrow Overclocking Gateway GM5260 **Help Needed**

Good Morning Everyone,

After screwing up the BIOS last night, I was able to reset it with help from some members on these forums. Now that I have read and have a better understanding of what I am about to do, I think I can go ahead and try again.

I've read that you can do some pretty decent overclocking with the Core 2 Duo. I am trying to get some more performance from my computer since I know it can do it.

I have attached some screen prints of my system information. Please advise on how far you think I can go when overclocking my system. I have a Gateway GM5260 and the rest of my specs is as follows(It seems to me that my memory is running slow and so is my Bus Speed):

Go to bios and up the FSB and load into the OS to be sure it is stable, if it becomes unstable just go back to the last working speed.

Ok, it wont let me. I guess Gateway locked it. Is there a way to get around it?
