hey,
im new to this overclocking thing. I was wondering if u can overclock a Sony Vaio VGN-FS742/W.
im running on Centrino 1.73, 512 megs of RAM and 80 gigs of harddrive. another question, even though i have 512 of RAM how come in the Systems tab it says i have 504 of RAM?
thanks

Sometimes the readings may be incorrect, or the ram hasn't been installed correctly, and or BIOS issues.

And to answer your other question, you should not overclock a Laptop. Reason, it can overheat and "kill" so to speak, all your computer parts, and render your laptop useless.
