Overclock without bios settings

Is there any safe way to overclock my cpu without going to the bios settings, since I dont have any. The motherboard is stock that came inside a gateway dx computer. I have a e5200 (2.5 ghz @ 800 mhz) cpu, running at only 28-30c idle, and 40-42c while playing gta 4, thought of testing it with that game since I only get 10-40 frames, and since its a resource hog, especially on the cpu. I think my cpu is overclockable to no more than 3.2 ghz with the stock cooler. running on vista home premium 64 bit
gpu: 4870 512mb
power supply: LSP 550 watt
memory: 2x2gb @800mhz

    Those are RAM speeds. Most modern Processors don't run that slow unless they're in a laptop
  5. i had 667 mhz bus speed of rams .... this has nothing to do with ram speeds/bus/Mhz whatever it is
