    If the BIOS has the support to do it, you're golden, however generally laptops can't, so....buy a faster one...

    Check your load temps first. Laptops usually run very hot even with stock settings.

    HP 8200 Elite USDT
    i5 2400S
    4GB DDR3 SODIMM
    Intel HD2000 graphics

    The BIOS for my mobo (MSI 880GMA-E4) with the same IG has an entry:

    Code:
    ▶ Onboard VGA Core OverClock
    This item allows you to overclock the onboard VGA.
    I haven't explored it but it does seem to hint at overclocking ability. That capability seems less likely on a laptop where there is typically less or no excess colling capacity.
