Default School computers

so i as sit in class on a half day i get thinking to myself what does this computer have in it, and so i download CPU-Z and find out its not the best, but then i think well maybe i could overclock the CPU a bit, but i cant get into BIOS so i have to get a program to do so. any suggestions for what i should do, just leave it alone or do it.

the mobo is a MSI MS 6535, and it has a P4 2.8GHz northwood

yeah lol it would suck ass through a straw if in the worst case scenario where you have to pay to replace the whole PC and then get suspended too or something.

Messing with school computers is dumb, kids screw them up and then they don't work for the next person who comes in and wants to use them and actually needs them for schoolwork.

Well, I did bring my ABIT BH6 and my equippement at school. Needless to say, I OCed the PC 100% to achieve the CPU speed, but it would constantly lock up, so it was worthless.
