  1. I am not familiar with the specific BIOS of that machine however most OEM laptop BIOS of that era that I have seen do not allow access to clock modification settings.
    due to thermal/voltage constraints.
  2. Yeah you can not change much of any thing in the BIOS on this thing I think I might just get a new laptop it is driving me nuts trying to work at 398mhz

    That would be my suggestion. There are many quality options in the $400 range.
  4. I found a nice used one today so I picked it up Dell Latitude E6400 happy with it only spent 200.00 on it has lots of life left in it + it does not have darn Intel GPU has NVIDIA® Quadro® NVS 160M5 so bit better for what I use it for.
