Go into the BIOS, and look in the advanced options. See if you're able to use the settings, such as FSB speed, VCore voltage, RAM speed and timings, etc...

If you can't enable the CPU frequency, then it's locked.

Oh wait, you said CPU frequency multiple....did you mean multiplier? If so, than that's always locked, because only the extreme edition processors, have unlocked multipliers. Anyway in your situation, that wouldn't matter if you want to overclock. But what about the CPU frequency speed or FSB? Can you change that?

First off, what are your idle and load temperatures. This can give a guide to how much you can overclock. Well assuming you're using the stock cooler on this P4, you won't get very far. But at least you'll be learning.
