DELL laptops are generally not overlockable except the recent XPS M1710's.

In terms of GPU overclocks, I have a XPS M1210 with the 7400 GO and I tried overclocking my VGU and it made my system very unstable. I wouldn't advise overclocking anything on a DELL laptop just because everything is hot as **** to begin with, and the specs are allready designed to give max performance without creating an unstable environment.

Laptop Overclocking - LaptopLogic.com

Just make sure you pay VERY VERY Careful attention to the heat problems. I'm still trying to find a 1" electric turbine to solve that problem

I'm probably sounding like a real idiot, but why are you trying to find a 1" electric turbine? And thanks for the link.

-EDIT-

Anyone know when I should stop overclocking my video card if I do? Like if I start seeing artifacts on the screen is that when I should stop? Also, should I stop before I see artifacts?
