I got a dv6700 laptop with the processor model intel core 2 duo T5450 @ 1.66GHz.

Does anyone know where I go to turn it up, I want it at 2.20GHz or at least know if its possible

It gets really annoying when all my specs are fine except the processor speed keeps me from playing games at a certain level, Please Help

Your laptop probably won't allow overclocking (none really do) in the BIOS. You'd need to use software, but I'd avise against it. Laptops already run pretty hot and with overclocking it'll run even hotter.

You'd probably want a high quality nice laptop cooling pad if you do plan to overclock.

I DO NOT recommend OCing a laptop unless you know it can deal with the heat. But the option is there. Your best bet is ClockGen.

Is this like a program for OCong Laptops or desktops and laptops?

Yes it is usually used when BIOS overclocking can't be done (like mine) and mainly for OEM computers.

Been there, tried that. The whole thing is a waste of time, they seem to go to great lengths to make it virtually impossible to overclock laptops! It would be unwise anyway as noted in previous posts due to the almost certain raging inferno that would result!

I've tried every program available to try to oc my laptop, nothing worked. And I seriously doubt it's the cpu holding you back in games. It's integrated graphics.

don't do it, if you want more speed save some money on a new laptop (preferably one that id meant for some light gaming), look around, cyberpowerpc.com is where i got mine, you can even use newegg and look ASUS laptops
