Default Notebook overclocking help

Would anybody know of any overclocking and temp monitoring utilities for a Compaq Armada mobile Pentium II notebook?

Thank you for your time.

I would simply advice you don't try it. Notebooks aren't meant for overclocking and run pretty hot internally as it is and the chances of you overheating something are pretty good. Usually your motherboard should have some temp monitoring utility such as that you speak of.

What you could do is basically take the computer apart and fan cool or attach a desktop proc. water block and OC it that way. If you do though, make sure you do it a few mhz at a time, and test in between. I've known people to OC notebooks, but not very much, and it's quite a tedious task. I would say the reward isn't worth the risk.
