Hi Iw33zYI . Your computer unfortunately is not going to have over clocking features in your bios . If this computer isn't doing the job for you save your money for a new computer . What do you use this computer for ?

nTune utility just "might" be able to overclock it, but I have not used it in ages. Give it try and report back. Always backup important stuff and remember the risks when doing overclock.

I just use it for internet and stuff but I would just like it to be faster for file transfer and things like that.

I don't know the overclocking risks and what exactly should I back up?

Overclocking can damage the hardware in your computer, harddisk, motherboard or power supply as examples. Backup your personal files, whatever is important to you.

Seriously, a dual core 4800+ is way more than you need to surf the Internet and do file transfers with, even without overclocking it. If these basic things are slow, check the computer for malware and do simple things like defragmenting the hard drive. Is there plenty of free drive space? How much free memory etc. Just a thought. Overclocking also generates extra heat, if you could do it the cpu stock fan may not be sufficient. This is more for hardcore gamers who just want that extra bit more out of the hardware. It's probably not what you really want to be doing, it doesn't sound like.
