    The problem is that when I do go to BIOS it doesn't give a options to go to "setup" to change the voltage, FSB, and the timing.

It should be in your BIOS settings. You could flash it and see if they appear.

Hope the fans are working good.

I would look for a BIOS update for your actual graphics card. The bugcheck is not called by windows but by the graphics driver when It detects a problem.
(power issue, memory corruption in the GPU, overheating) It only seems to happen on over clocked AMD graphics card. You might also want to make sure
that you are not overclocking the PCI bus in the ASUS BIOS. (overclocked PCI bus and overclocked GPU can cause issues)

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

    How can i overclock my HP pavilion dv7-1285dx cpu?


    I would not recommend overclocking the processor in a laptop, it will generate more heat and probably lead to a shutdown.

    Is it possible to overclock the processor? if so with what


    The only way to overclock a processor is to raise its settings in the BIOS. You can't do that in this laptop because its BIOS doesn't allow it.

    I'm trying to update my Inspiron 1100 to (2) 512mb PC2700 DDR 333Mhz SODIMMs (per Crucial) with no luck. Presently have (2) 12mbk PC2100 DDR 266Mhz that work. I have updated the BIOS to A32. As I am seeing...


    the system mb doesnt support the 333mhz click speed. You need to get memory that 133 - 266 mhz's.. other than that you will need to upgrade the mb to support 333 mhz,, which sadly you cant get 1 to fit in that unit.. another thing to remember is that you cant mix two different clock speeds .. for example 133 and a 266 mhz..

    1 thing you can try is to overclock the system..

    1.) enter the bios (press the designated key shown on the boot screen to enter cmos or bios settings)..
    2.) change the Clock speed to 333..
    3.) save and exit..
    4.) shutdown
    5) insert 512mb sticks
    turn on and hope for the best..

    Whats strange enough is that the overclocking seems to work on some and not for others,, I think it has a lot to do with the chipset and the brand.. not sure..

    let me know if it works or maybe we can try something else,, I'll post again based on your reply.

    HOW TO OVERCLOCK LAPTOP TO BOOST SPEED?


    Overclocking on computers is done via the BIOS, if the BIOS on the computer supports it. The T23 hasn't got this ability.
    Late model desktop computers have this capability with Gigabyte motherboards as well as other makes, overclocking will generate greater heat problems and additional CPU cooling may be requires.
