    OEM computer? go to the bios to adjust the colling of the computer's CPU.This is how you can over clock the cpu unless the bios is lock to that computer.

    when your computer boots up, what speed does it show for the cpu 1800 or 2800. If 1800 then you have to go into the bios and change the settings. Also possibility that the motherboard can't properly read the bios until you do a bios update
