    I'v been a fool and bought a cpu fan ( thankfully, it wasn't to expensive ) for the purpose to overclock my cpu. Now this is when I run into a bit of a pickle, I have no idea how o overclock my cpu! First of all I know nothing of overclocking so if any one could tell me a little bit about overclocking I would be thankfull for that. Second of all I don't even know if my cpu/motherboard combination CAN be overclocked. Here are my specs: ( according to AIDIA32 )
    --------------------------------------------
    My Computer: Standard built by Compaq
    Brand Name : Compaq Presario 6195EA ( ANCIENT )
    MotherBoard : Compaq Presario 6195EA
    CPU Name : Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.20Ghz
    CPU Alias : Northwood. A80523
    --------------------------------------------

    Now, I don't really know what any of this means( :eek: ), so any help would be most appreciated.

    I hate to tell you but most manufacturers clock lock their motherboards so you cant overclock. With some you cant even upgrade the processor. I think the only thing you can do is go to the Compaq website in the Support section and see if your motherboard can be upgraded with a faster processor. More RAM helps alot too.
