Default Can my laptop be overclocked?

Hi guys, I'm the new guy. I had a quick question.
I just bought a laptop from Dell, Inspiron E1505, Intel Core Duoprocessor T2400 (2MB/1.83GHz/667MHz), I was wondering if that can be overclocked?

Also the other thing that I wanted to know was if my video card can be over clocked, I read somewhere that thing video card can be: 256MB Ge Force 7300 Graphics card for Inspiron 6400/E1505

Please let me know, thanks so much guys. Sorry about the newbee question.

Perhaps, but it would overheat for sure.

I would say so, however I have never done it. Anyways, GL

Most video cards in any computer can be OCed, in my Inspiron 6000 with an X300 it can be overclocked, im pretty sure it would overheat though. Yeh be careful of those batteries have a look on the dell site and make sure your battery isnt in the list.

No you can't. It's a DELL and it's a laptop.
