Overclocking a dell laptop?


Hey all,
I would like to know if there is a way to overclock a locked-BIOS laptop such as a dell inspirion 1564. I have tried ATI tray tools, rivatuner, gpu clock and msi afterburner all to no avail, when I open such a program the clocks are either already shown to be maxed or some message or the other pops up saying that the clock speed is unadjustable.
I have an extra cooling pad under the laptop at all times while gaming so heat is less of an issue (it's still a dangerous I know). I have a mobility 4330 gpu in the laptop and I'm using windows 7 64 if that matters.
thanks in advance

setFSB would be the first place I would look for overclocking the CPU. But oyu need to find the PLL for your board in order for it to work.

As you know, its not a good idea to overclock a laptop, but at least you have an extra cooler in there.

Wait are you only looking ot overclock the video card? Not sure about that one.

Have you downloaded a new video driver?

I wrote up a guide for overclocking laptop GPUs a while ago. I haven't updated it for Windows 7 but there shouldn't be much of a difference. Try following my guide and see how far it gets you. That's what I used on my Dell XPS and it worked just fine.

I was able to overclock the HD4330 on an HP. You do need modified drivers to do that by my understanding. I forget the site I went to, but the HD4330, once overclocked, can actually handle BFBC2 on low settings slightly better (higher FPS) then SLI 8800GTs on high settings.

I managed to overclock my Mobility Radeon 3650 from:
Engine Clock: 600MHz - 735MHz OC
Memory Clock: 500MHz - 615MHz OC

I am currently uploading a videoguide on how to overclock a Mobility Radeon I will post it here as soon as it's uploaded!

thanks grubbluck will try and post results soon

Edit: so I tried it and it works great no overheating (just 1 degree!) with an increase of 200 MHz in the clock speed and about 150 in the memory (that's all it would let me go ). Just one gripe: I have now hit the artifact wall it seems and can no longer continue OC'ing while stable. Can I adjust the voltage of the card to overcome this or is that just overkill? and if I can how may I do that exactly? rivatuner does not allow me to temper with the voltages. thanks a bunch guys for the help

That sounds really good, glad I could help you.

Volt mod might be possible, haven't thought of it.
But I don't think you will get so much better performance either way, but why not try... it's fun
