there might be jumpers on the motherboard to adjust the front side bus, but with that brand of PC, overclocking was not an included feature.

Most oem's like your HP are stuck that way the bios is very limited and gives no options as you saw yourself , and your motherboard will be like most prepackaged name brands oem and will have nothing great....but you might be lucky if that board was used for a higher rated cpu...for that go look around at HP see what you can find ie: the .pdf manual for a start any maybe a bios update

Come to the realisation that you've got a motherboard that won't overclock, and then spend $100 on getting a half decent one. :D

Do a search of "softFSB" or cpuFSB on this forum to see your other option.

this is just in my case... it has nothing to do with razorwing..

makes me very angry that a lot of ppl (in my case) only heard of 'intel pentiums', and they think they're the best cause they've got the 'PENTIUM 4'.... and don't know any else about their comp

then i tell them the AMD athlon xps at the same clock speed are faster than the p4s in some cases and they'll say 'wtf is AMD??'

I wish people would at least do a little research on a particular problem instead of posting a question expecting that their problem be solved for them...

Dude, at least TRY to get educated a little and read up on what your trying to do then try it yourself....dont just ask for directions.
:eek:

olright, well we've basically already said, if u buy a comp from hp, they've probably set it so u can't OC it........ and so u should buy a "half decent mb" with any money u have if u really want to OC ur athlon

my compaq, it says 850 mhz athlon on the side panel sticker but it came with a 900 hehe hahah. oh well... it's pretty much considered 'slow' now.... according to today's standards

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
