Default Overclocking an old Dell

I just recently aquired a Dell Dimension L700cx Intel Celeron 700mhz. I reformatted the 10gig hd and put XP home on it. It has 64mb of ram. I'm thinking i can upgrade this baby a bit and turn it into a decent computer. I just wanted to know, how can i overclock it? In BIOS, the speed settings are locked, so i dont know what to do. PLEASE HELP!!

You can make your own BIOS...good luck

It'd be next to immpossible to get a Dell BIOS modified and workable i believe...cuz there mobo's are ultra sensitive and probably would fry to a slight tweak. but of course someone always does the impossible...so maybe Google will find you some nice modified Dell BIOS's...or maybe not. lol.

no problem...i've tried to overclock Dell laptops and HP workstations before

I got to the point where you are probably on the computers...had to find what IC's they used and who made them and what not...neither were supported and my screen went all goofy and pixely and i about fried the laptop. never tried that again lmao.
