Default Overclocking my p4

As you guys know I have a Dell computer with a p4 at 2.4 ghz. I really want to overclock it before I get a new comp. The dell bios is locked! Can anyone guide me through a hack so I can unlock the bios?

The only way to unlock a Dell BIOS is to replace the motherboard. Sorry.

Pretty much. Sometimes you can reflash the BIOS with a different one compatible with that motherboard, but they can be difficult to locate if there even is one. Even more so, now that dell has pretty much everything custom made for them.
