I have a HP DV7 Pavilion 4285 dx 4285 entertainment Notebook PC. (2010 model) It has an ATI Radeon HD 6300M series (6370) W/switchable Intel HD graphics, Intel Core i5 460M, 2.53 GHZ, 2534 MHZ, Duo processors (I have all 4 threads opened and working instead of the factory 2), 6 GB Ram, 600 GB HDD W/1TB WD Passport External HDD, Windows 7 64 bit, I am trying to improve the overall performance without overheating my CPU's or frying my motherboard.

There are a few settings I do not understand and would like some insight as to how to get this baby tuned up. I work with Photo editing software that is pretty resource hungry.

Thank you,

Unfortunately, it looks like you won't be able to bump the frequency anymore. Laptops are not powerhouses... But even if you could over clock over stock, it would not be recommended. I also saw that there is no voltage manipulation available... Which would help with thermals greatly.
