Exclamation My SEMPRON 3100+ is IMPOSSIBLE to overclock!! Help!

I have a emachines T3120 with a sempron 3100+ (Palermo 64-bit). I have tried many times to overclock the cpu but the bios is crippled by emachines. There are no overclock options.

I have tried to use software to overclock but the overclock is never saved. It reverts back to the original speed every time I restart my PC.

people have been telling me that it is possible to overclock an emachines with a little know-how like getting a third party bios.

My motherboard is a FIC K8MC51G and there is no bios updates.

Can anybody help me

i tried that... but good luck with getting any of the frequency generators to work with a dell motherboard.

none of them read correctly, and the internet gives no info on what the dell motherboards use as fir as i could find.

With an Emachines board your pretty much screwed for overclocking. The preformance gain that you'll get from using a windows application is hardly worth your time.
