Overclocking a laptop (or any OEM computer for that matter) is a thoroughly bad idea.
Laptops lack virtually everything that is needed for safe and effective overclocking. Among other things overclocking produces more heat which laptops are poorly equipped to handle. Many laptops run hot even at stock speeds. While it may be possible to overclock a laptop the results are rarely satisfactory and the risks are high.

Overclocking is best done on a home-built desktop where you can control the quality and specifications of components used.

Agreed. If it's speed is unacceptable, consider a new one that will fill your needs now and in the future. If you do not need the portability, consider a desktop model since you can get more computer for the money you spend. Consider using the laptop you have for the times you need it portable and get the desktop for more serious computing or gaming when you are home.

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