need some help on overclocking values, at the moment im running an intel pent3 at 450MHz 1GHz, wondering what would be an appropriate value to increase to?
also the previous owner of my pc has set a BIOS password is there a way to crack or bypass the password, i have tried all the generic passwords.
cheers :whistling:

There is a guide to overclocking in the guides/tutorials at http://www.geekstogo...ock-t11177.html As for the password problem, you could try clearing the cmos to defaults. This is usually accomplished by 1)using the jumper if your motherboard has one or 2) removing the cmos battery. Check your motherboard documentation. If you don't have a manual for your motheroboard, you can probably get one at the manufacturer's web site.
