cause iv tryed yu gi oh and t runed perfectly no problems.
and how i can play games directmy from my dvd drive ???.
heres the thing most people dont realize at first.
on pcsx2 if you can run one game at great speed that doesnt mean you can run all of them like that.
also when you overclock a component in your desktop and laptop computer, you are pushing it too work harder
thus it will tend too get hotter especially cpu's
i would expect that if its a 2.0ghz intel core2duo that you could mabye push it too 2.2ghz with out it getting really hot.
but if yout were too clock it too 2.4ghz it would get very hot and more than likley over heat due too it being a laptop, and that intel coils/coolers arent that good at cooling, but the newer ones are.
but you also have too find out how high your fsb can be pushed when overclocking an intel cpu they can usualy go pretty high.
but also remember when your overclocking a cpu too a high frequency you can bottleneck your gpu and then no matter how much higher you go it will just be pointless unless your wanting too use for things other than gaming
but in a plain and simple answer
use setfsb it works great with intel cpu's and so does clockgen and ntune if you have an nvidia chipset which im sure you do if you have a nvidia onboard with an hp bios
raise the fsb 5mhz at a time and try too find your limit
when you have found your limit your laptop will crash then reboot *safely* and then go back too the fsb limit that worked best
just remember too watch your heat temps
you can do this with a program called speedfan
download it here:
a dualcore cpu can reach 54-62 degrees celcius
quads are usualy safe until 65-70 degrees celcius *ive heard the core i7 and late amd quads can safley reach 76-80 degrees celcius*
well thats all you need too know about overclocking.
unless you want too use your bios but then you will need a motherboard that is a name brand such as gigabyte,asus ect
one thing i forgot too add, when you use software too overclock you are more than likely going too have too re overclock every time you restart your computer
