Hello fellow geeks!

Yes, I know overclocking is sometimes a bad choice, but I will suffer the consequences.
I own a Dell Studio 1555 (Pentium Dual-Core CPU T4200, 2GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, ATI Mobility Radeon 4570 512 MB)
For a long time i have been frustrated about the crappy performance of my computer whilst playing certain games and the thought of overclocking has passed my mind a few times. Since for some reason i can not do this via the BIOS (which i recently upgraded to Phoenix BIOS Setup Utility (Version A13), I am asking you out there:

Can I mod my BIOS to be able to be configured?
If otherwise, what software would you recommend I used to overclock.

Thanks in advance /Slembroccoli

I don't think you can overclock that. Sorry.

But... Why? =)
You don't have to answer if you feel you don't have the time.

Simply for the lack of options you get in the BIOS on an OEM machine. But someone may know better, so keep an eye open on the subject.

dell locks down their bios, there is nothing you can do but power on/off ide devices and change the time &date. if extremeoverclockers has a way it would be interesting to read about.
