    Yeah the bad thing about Dell, HP, ect. besides the cheap parts that can not hold up to the increased heat and voltages that are caused by overclocking is that they lock the BIOS to keep you from trying to overclock. They want you to buy a new machine if you need more performance not overclock the one you have.
