Are you using the stock CPU cooler?

You have a very overclockable system. You'll want to increase the voltage to your memory and CPU, then start increasing the FSB in your BIOS. Go about 5mhz at a time, until Windows refuses to load, then back off and begin tweaking. <_<

There's a lot of info here:

Including a database showing what others have been able to overclock their systems to, as well as some good guides and tips for increasing success.

yea, i have the stock heatsink and fan on the CPU, but i got 2 extra 80mm fans on the case, the CPU temp has not gone above 100F yet, and the air in the case stayes about 65F, so, i should have ecent ventelation for it, what would you consider a safe speed for OCing in your opinion?

You should have no problem increasing the FSB from 166 to 200mhz. At which point your 2500+ will be performing like a 3200+ <_<

If you get the stock cooler with the copper core. If it's all aluminum I'd upgrade it.

Unless you're trying to squeeze every mhz out of your CPU, you don't need a very expensive one. The most important thing is that it has a copper core. There are many, many heatsink fan reviews on the Internet.

The easiest way is to reset your BIOS. Disconnect the power, remove the computer case, look for a battery on the motherboard (like shown below). Remove this battery for at least five minutes. Then replace the battery, and reconnect the power. Reboot and see if it worked. You'll need to reset the system time and date.

A typical motherboard battery:

Not much else you can do. Try leaving the battery out overnight, if that doesn't work, try a couple days. If still no luck you must have toasted something--most likely the motherboard. <_<
