I'm like 90% sure that is a laptop.

You can OC a few laptops (yours not being one of them), because A.) its a name brand one with a locked BIOS B.) the gain's are not worth the battery life you lose

If you want to truly OC, you need a custom build Desktop, iBuyPower/Cyberpower PC, or a Dell H2C PC

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

First before you buy more memory make sure you have enough expansion for it. Buying another GB of memory is almost the only thing you could do to speed it up. Also you could find some tweaking software to speed certain things up on your computer.
