I have laptop with cpu AMD A4-3310MX 2.1GHz stock speed.
When I want to overclock my cpu using AMD Overdrive, I can overclock just up to 2.3GHz. If I try to go above this value it always turns its clock-speed at minimum value of 1000MHz.

A few days ago I was able to overclock my cpu to any value (maximum 4000MHz). I can remember I tried to play some games at clock speed 2.8GHz.

I own quite good cooling pad. I have never reached maximum operating temperature, even I got no crash during playing.

Does anybody know the solution of this issue?
Thank you for your help

overdrive not working, These chips scale with cooler temperatures, they hate heat and do not always scale with more voltage (which is also a big no-no in laptop overclocking anyways),
It means you must OVERCLOCK SPEED and UNDERVOLT THE CHIP at the same time. This allows laptop to keep heat down, but also overclock to get more performance.
