Assuming your looking for more speed/power, I suggest just getting a new card. OCing that card won't get you a lot.

Doubtful. But, what is your power supply specs? It may be that the card doesn't overclock well (or at all in this case).

When using Overdrive, do you do the increases in the smallest amount possible? When first overclocking something, it's best to do it in small increments to make sure the part can handle the change.

EDIT: Read this article about a hotfix and otehr ideas on overclocking that card:

Honestly, I think those cards may not be meant to overclock. ATI tends to limit that on low end cards. I think it's a situation of its components can't handle the stress over any overclocking.

This article shows some overclocking done on them, but that doesn't mean every card will do it.

This person mentions overclocking theirs, but good airflow is needed.

So, without more information on your system, it's hard to know what the issue is.
