    well here is the basics of it i guess:

    you go into your bios and check out your temps first, make sure they are pretty good, below 45 is good, below 37 would be really good for overclocking.

    then while in the bios find a setting to change teh multiplier or fsb (front side bus)
    the front side bus willl most likely be the one you want to change. put it up little bits at a time then boot to see if the computer will start and run folding@home for a little while to make sure its stable then you can go a little more. if the computerbecomes unbootable put it back down or clear the cmos to reset it to default.

    fsb changes make your ram run faster and are usually around 200-333 for a new processor and around 33-100 for older ones.

    multiplier might be locked on your chip but if it is changeable it will change your cpu's speed. the speed of the cpu is found by multiplying the multiplier times the fsb.

    ex. the xp2000 has an fsb of 133 (266 effective) and multiplier of 12.5. 133*12.5= 1670mhz.


    so basically if you ahve good temps and the option in your bios then put up the fsb a little then boot and test and repeat till it stops working to get your max speed.

    what does it say when you try to change it? does it change then you restart and it goes back or does it just not go any higher?

    OT/ How do the people who look after your pc (i.e: warrenty cover) know if you have or haven't overclocked it?

    well as long as you clear your cmos and go back to default they have no proof at all that you overclocked, but usually if your cpu fails it will be beucase of inadequate cooling, and overclocking means more cooling so if it fails its usually because of overclocking so they will know, but have no proof.
