You have a prebuilt machine, so your motherboard is not built to overclock and the BIOS is locked to prevent you from doing it.
So you will not be able to overclock.

not necessarily affroman112.....if you read up some PCs come with unlocked BIOS so that you can still OC them even though they were prebuilt
