    Usually NOT possible to adjust FSB in BIOS on proprietary motherboards and branded PCs. You could try thru software such as Clockgen. But it only works if the motherboard's clock generator chip is supported.

    Good luck.

    Most computers can be overclocked. What you have to do is figure out how to get into the BIOS. This is a mini operating system that (semi)permanently ingrained into you computer. When you boot your computer up, you normally have to hit a key like Delete, F1-12, or Esc. If it is a HP, then it will probably have an HP logo and in the corner it will say "Press (whatever) to enter setup" or something along those lines.

    In the BIOS, there are things like boot order (whether to boot of the CD or hard drive first) and normally a choice to overclock your processor.

    Bottom line, you can't overclock this board...

    The Motherboard you have in this computer is the Intel G33 and there are no options for overclocking in the bios.

    Those options are what we (Overclockers) called "Locked".

    HP Elite systems specs.

    Your Intel DG33TL Media series motherboard:

    Only the high end Extreme Series Intel boards allow overclocking starting with the D975XBX & D975XBX2 aka Badaxe 2.

    If you wanted to overclock your system then you should have bought a system that allows for it to begin with.

    My system has the D975XBX2 Mobo in it & yes I'm overclocking it. My Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66Ghz is @ 3.46Ghz.

    30% OC.

    You can if your motherboard supports overlocking.
