Can anyone fill me in on voltage to clock speed ratios that will not hurt my laptop???

It's a Gateway MX7525 64-bit athlon 4000+...

Right now I have it underclocked to 2GHZ with the voltage at 1.3... is that overkill?

You can't even generalize voltages for CPUs of the same type, since one can not tell how they behave on different mobos. But generally speaking the lower the cooler the better. If min and max voltage are stable, the auto-adjusted intermediate ones should be, too. However, there might be still the problem that some multipliers behave a little bitchy and cause bluescreens, so you can opt them out of the table. If you got no problem, you are fine. Above all, test stability with a CPUstresser like prime95 on each level min and max. If it is errorfree, it should save you from data corruption due to undervolting..
