    If you over clock by changing the frequency of the Front Side Bus you can cause premature hard drive, ram or anything that uses this clock frequency. Also all these components will run hotter making your heating problem worse. CPU speed is Front Side Bus frequency times the CPU multiplier. If multiplier is locked sometimes a program like clockgen will change the Front Side Bus so to up cpu speed. A lot of front side buses are locked also. Not over 20% is recommended and then that may be to much. Some people have figured out how to unlock some cpu's, like the Athlons and then I saw a hack to jumper cpu socket to fool cpu into thinking the FSB went from 400 to 533. Saying something is impossible alway made me want to do it anyway when I was a kid. Now I ask myself is it worth it, like in your case.

    Yo guys, does detting 2x2GB 1333MHz and faster HDD(7200RPM) makes thing faster? I think it would help the gaming and the access time but i mostly want the HDD to be around 10k.... Should i get faster HDD or not?

    already have 4gigs of ram & replacing old ram with new ram if laptop sees the new ram won't be noticeable difference in speed. the problem is the onboard video which is causing the lagging problem, not the ram nor the hd speed but the videocard. if you want to spend a couple of grand on a gaming laptop then go ahead but remember that laptops are harder to upgrade & worse to repair. i've got 3 latops to repair & 2 of those came today.

    What you basically saying is that the VideoCard(OnBoard) is slowing the computer down and speed of RAM wont make a different? How to replace the VideoCard(Even possible LOL)???

    can't replace videocard as it is part of motherboard. the videocard is not slowing down the computer, it is just not able to run properly newer games. you are stuck with what you have.

    I get it... So it's not possible to install Windows XP? I have a 2008 Windows XP SP3 CD disk and it's having a problem... My bro said, some files isn't campatible with my Computer or files... I didnt get it but is it even possible now? What would you guys recommend for Speed, Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7? Windows XP doesn't seem to work but i think it's the 2 years old DISK that got scratched...

    I dont get that... I just want to know if it's even possible to Install Windows XP... It doesn't seem to support Lenovo G550... Driver doesn't matters since i have them already on my Lenovos Partition... All i need to know is how to make XP work on my Lenovo...

    Why would you install a win7 64-bit driver if you are trying to install XP?
    I looked at the link DDP supplied, its quite obvious which drivers are for XP.

    Ummm, If there's a way to OC please just tell me... I dont care what's the consequence are, just tell me and dont said, "This ganna be burning" or "it's ganna Overheat stuff" I dont care what would happen, just tell me how to OC anyways.... Just wanna OC to 2.6 or so... I cleaned the FAN and the Temperature dropped 10 degrees... It's at 129*F after i cleaned the CPU FAN and i haven't seen higher... Just wanna OC until temperature go up to 170*F.... If it's impossible then just tell me instead of trying to say this doesn't work and all those useless stuff... Just tell me how to do it...
