Default Is it possible to overclock this PC?

I need a different computer but don't have a lot to spend on one right now, if I buy this eMachines EL1331 can it be overclocked? It says it has an AMD Athlon processor.

No I'm sorry you will not be able to oc that computer. The mobo will not allow to to change the clock settings in bios

It *might* be possible to do a software OC with some sort of CPU tuner in windows, though I wouldn't recommend it.

Wait if the bios being locked is the problem can't you just get around that with a backdoor pass? if you know the company who made the bios just look up the backdoor pass for that kind. I would think that would work.
