Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
If I overclock my AMD Athlon 2650E Processor 1.6GHZ (15watt) What is the maximum setting I can set, without causing any damage to the computer, or even having to worry about it?
When Processors (CPU) are made, they are made on a Pass/Fail scale. Processor is either Good, or not good.
This means you may get a Processor that is on the Top of the scale, or Bottom of the scale. The AMD factory doesn't discriminate.
In fact they don't care. (This goes for all Processor manufacturers, not just AMD)
All they care about is does the Processor work, or not?
Therefore, you may have a Processor that is on the Bottom of the scale, but passed as Good.
Point? Stating a setting that might be good for joeblow's AMD Athlon 2650e, may not work for yours.
Might work for yours, and not joeblow's.
This is why you need to go into BIOS Setup, and using a SMALL increment, overclock the Processor.
Run the computer for 24 hours, and see if everything is chiily.
(Computer still works OK)
This is a "Burn-In test"
Works OK for 24 hours? Then go back into BIOS Setup, and go up one more small increment. Do the Burn-In test.
Keep going until the computer has glitches, or doesn't work.
Then go back into BIOS Setup, and come down one small increment, or go back to where the computer WAS working OK.
It's an individual thing. Each Processor (CPU) is different from the others.

Reformatting your Windows computer is usually the absolute last resort and is often done unnecessarily. Before you go through the process of doing a reformat of your hard drive please take a few moments to read through the rest of our website. If you are reformatting to fix problems with your Windows computer it's possible that by using some of the tips on our site, or by downloading or purchasing some of the tools or products that we link to, you might be able to avoid the need to reformat your computer. Because doing a complete reformat of your computer will erase the contents of the hard drive and require you to reinstall all software, reformatting is usually a last resort.
Some Computer Manufacturers Make Reformatting EasyMany name-brand PC manufacturers include a restore-disk which makes it easy to reformat your PC and return it to the state it was in on the day you purchased it. Some manufactures supply only a standard Microsoft Windows CD, and some (usually lower-end PC manufacturers) supply neither! If your PC did not come with a restore or reformatting CD, then you will need to take extra steps to format your hard drive and get Windows re-installed.
Back Up Your Files Before You Reformat Your Windows PC!Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.

Simply put, No.
Chances are the performance of vista on an eMachine is an ugly sight anyway. My advise would be to downgrade to XP or try a good solid Linux distribution like Ubuntu. It will preform faster and be more stable that it ever was with Vista. Don't get me wrong I am not a total vista hater but it is a hog.
Best of Luck
