How do I increase FSB past its factory preset in my HP Pavilion 515n pc?


Some people, when their computer reaches the point that it can't run the programs it once used to, decide to toss their machine and invest in a new one. Others squeak out some extra life by overclocking their processors. While this is ideally done with hardware, for pre-built HP computers you will have to use a software option. With this minor exception, the process is still a breeze.

Download and install CPU overclocking software, such as ClockGen, SetFSB or SysTool (see Below). http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=189 http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Benchmarks/SetFSB.shtml http://www.techpowerup.com/systool/ While all these programs more or less work the same, for this guide we will be working with ClockGen. Boot the CPU overclocking software. Do not be alarmed if your computer momentarily slows down, as the software is reading your CPU's clock speeds. Click "PLL Control" or the equivalent in your overclocking software. This will show you several sliders for your front-side bus (FSB) and, in many cases, your PCI cards. Adjust the FSB slider. Be sure to do this slowly, as the processor will likely fail if there is a sudden speed change. For best results, use the arrows to slowly adjust the settings by one-to-two megahertz at a time. Click "Apply" frequently to set the speeds. Hope this helps.

Tip

MAKING YOUR COMPUTER OPERATE VERY FAST & SECURED THROUGH CPU OVERCLOCKING


NOTE: OVERCLOCKING COMPUTER CPU MAKES IT PERFORM FASTER ABOVE THE FACTORY SET LEVEL, BEFORE OVERCLOCKING, READ THE GUIDE BELOW, AND VIEW THE SOFTWARE APPROACH HERE OPEN

drbrightirem.jpgOverclocking a processor means enabling it to operate above the manufacturer's specified frequency. Many internet sites provide instructions for overclocking. Processor manufacturers and many computer experts believe the slight gain in performance (only perceivable on CPU-intensive software) isn't worth the expense or considerable risk.

  • Get whatever tools you need: screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, motherboard manual, cooling hardware, etc.
  • 2 Find out whether your motherboard can be adjusted in the BIOS setup, with jumpers or not at all.
  • 3 Find out clock-speed limitations of the motherboard.
  • 4 Run all Windows and any third-party diagnostic applications you have. Fix all system problems.
  • 5 Make a complete backup of your system, documents and applications you don't have on CD-ROM. Do not overwrite these copies.
  • 6 If you have a BIOS-adjustable motherboard, make changes according to your motherboard manual, and skip to Step 15.
  • 7 Shut down computer.
  • 8 Leave computer plugged in to surge suppressor.
  • 9 Disconnect all peripherals from computer.
  • 10 Remove cover of chassis.
  • 11 Ground yourself to computer with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching a metal part of the chassis.
  • 12 If your motherboard has adjustable jumpers, locate the jumpers that control the CPU speed.
  • 13 Use needle-nose pliers to change jumper settings. Move jumpers to positions indicated in your motherboard manual for the clock speed you want. Check the internet for recommendations.
  • 14 Install a CPU heat sink, heat-sink compound, and a specialty cooling fan, if appropriate and possible.
  • 15 Put system back together, and reboot.
  • 16 If computer does not boot, and CPU still works, try lowering the clock speed. If that doesn't work, restore the original configuration.
  • 17 Check all functions, and run a CPU-intensive program.


  • NOTE: OVERCLOCKING COMPUTER CPU MAKES IT PERFORM FASTER ABOVE THE FACTORY SET LEVEL, BEFORE OVERCLOCKING, READ THE GUIDE BELOW, AND VIEW THE SOFTWARE APPROACH HERE OPEN Tips & Warnings
    • CPUs have rated and maximum speeds. Exceeding the maximum speed is far more likely to cause problems than more conservative adjustments.

    • Overclocking an Intel processor explicitly voids its warranty. Other manufacturers have similar exclusions. Intel prevents overclocking of some CPUs by disabling higher multiplier settings.

    • Expect a shorter life for an overclocked processor, including the possibility of its immediate failure.

    • Prepare to deal with seemingly unrelated problems that can be caused by overclocking: destruction of other internal components, lost data, system and application crashes, and an inability to boot the system. Such problems can occur randomly or materialize well after you have altered your motherboard

    Overclocking


    I never overclock my processors... because I have fried a couple.

    AND I don't really need any extra power/speed... because now I only surf the web and do some Word/Excel stuff and my duo core Intel chip is awesome for that.

    So - first: I don't recommend it.

    But - second: there are some good sources on the web about it...

    Do you know how to do it?
    I mean the steps to get to the settings and change them?

    If you do then I found some recommendations for your processor at http://www.amdgeeks.net/overclockdatabase.

    ====================================
    Processor: Athlon 64 LE-1640 2600 @ 3422 MHz
    Overclock % Voltage Idle Load
    132% 1.25/35/40 @ 1.50V 35°C 41°C

    Processor: Athlon 64 LE-1640 2600 @ 3380 MHz
    Overclock % Voltage Idle Load
    130% 1.25/35/40 @ 1.40V 30°C 40°C

    Processor: Athlon 64 LE-1640 2600 @ 3320 MHz
    Overclock % Voltage Idle Load
    128% 1.25/35/40 @ 1.37V 29°C 44°C
    ===============================
    Like I said I don't recommend it so I don't want to walk you through it, also when you do this you run a risk of frying your chip - and I don' want to be liable. Like I said above - there is some good infor on the web about it so you should not have any trouble finding out how if you don't know.

    Good luck

    Problem restrart pc /NO AUTORESTART


    It sounds like you're trying to overclock your CPU, and you have exceeded what the CPU is capable of, under the current conditions. When you start the computer, enter BIOS setup (e.g. press the DEL key), and adjust the CPU settings to default. If you're not sure how to do this, choose the "LOAD OPTIMAL SETTINGS" or "LOAD DEFAULT SETTINGS" option from the main BIOS menu. If you are not getting this error until after Windows has started, then there is software installed that is trying to overclock the CPU for you. Uninstall it. It may be a program provided by Asus, or may be a third-party program. It will probably have "tweak" or "overclock" in the name. Overclocking can achieve an increase in performance, but will void the warranty, and does reduce the lifespan of the parts, and tends to make Windows crash more often. It can cause immediate failure of the parts. It should only be done if you understand and accept the risks, and have decided the reward is worthwhile. For most users, it is not worth it.
