Hi sarthamunshi and welcome to Tom's forum.

I don't recommend OC a laptop like yours since the laptops doesn't comes with a good cooler.

In the worst case u can kill the CPU, mobo or both.

Look for this software: setFBS that gives you the possibility to OC the laptop from Windows but like I say be very carefully and do it on ur own risk.

Laptops have very tight enclosures which just compound the heat problem. That's why they are made to run slower than desktops: to reduce the heat. Overclocking adds heat, so cooling is of paramount importance. Cooling adds complexity, and, more to the point, increases the overall volume of the unit, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a laptop.

generally you dont want to overclock a laptop because like it was stated above HEAT!!!! When overclocking ANYTHING heat is your worst enemy. General laptops dont have any cooling that is worth a flip so you will eventually kill it due to heat.

What make and model is your laptop?

Why do you want to overclock it?

What exactly do you want to overclock ?

The best imporvement you can make on your Pavillion is to install a good SSD.
