Specs: Windows 8, AMD A6-4400M APU 2.7 GHz/ 6.00 (5.46 usable) GB
I have a Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7332 and want to overclock it, change my fan speed, possibly upgrade my ram and core, and check temp on each component, not the computer in general. I tried going to BIOS but there were no real options like normal BIOS's I have seen. Pretty much it did not allow me to change any settings like voltage, fan speed, overclock, etc.. I am not sure if it is possible on this motherboard and if I need a different one. I know the heating issues that people say will happen if I overclock but with my fan at a very low speed (can't hear it at all) my computer is doing fine. (Or as far as I can tell. It hasn't given me errors about temperature so... I am not sure.) I will give specs in a bit, unless you find the info online.

Laptops aren't designed to be overclocked.

Don't even bother trying. Laptops are a poor choice to try to overclock because of the limited space and cooling. All manufactured systems have their BIOS' designed so that they have limited adjustments so that cheaper choices in components do not begin to fail under the additional stresses of overclocking and the compromises that laptop makers have to make to balance price, speed, temperatures, run time, size and weight do not allow any reasonable margin of safety for these components.
Overclocking should ONLY be done on a custom built desktop system where you have chosen components with more than a minimal safety margin (safe as in the component being over designed for additional stress against component failure) and sufficient cooling taken into consideration in the system design. Even then, there are guidelines that will need to be followed to help reduce the chances that you will have component failure related to heat, voltage, and compatibility. With care, the risk of these failures can be minimized, but cheap or poorly made components can take other more expensive components with them.
Laptops and overclocking to not mix and even the most experienced overclockers would not attempt it. If you need a faster laptop, purchase faster laptop. The only upgrades you can typically do is upgrade the amount of memory you have (if it is not enough) and upgrade from a conventional hard drive to an SSD drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
