I dont understand why my AMD overdrive wont show anything like novice mode bar or even advanced mode on prefenrences. Its just set in a way I cant do anything. The only way i can overclock with it is through turbo core, my Laptop has a A8-4500m with an AMD Radeon HD 7640G running at just 1.9Ghz with turbo boost up to 2.8Ghz, therefore I try to overclock but it just goes up to 2.3Ghz, plus Im not sure if Im using the right amount of voltage. Please help, if is through skype then even better or whatever u can do.

Because you have a laptop, you can't overclock it due to thermal constraints.

But it is going up to 2.3Ghz, not more than that so tht would be overclocking right? if it is any idea how many voltage does this would need?

No ,' because yuor APU isa native 2.8Ghz APU.  O.C. would be past the 2.8 turbo.
