It depends on the motherboard, if it's an Intel board you can't overclock the CPU.

Additionally, if it's a factory-built PC there will be no overclocking options in the BIOS whatever motherboard it has.

If, however, it's a custom-built PC, you should see overclocking options in the BIOS but take care and monitor your CPU temp or you could damage it.

If it is not a factory made machine, list your components in detail (all) and we may be able to help.

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

Speed or RAM please?
E5500 Core 2 Duo or E5500 Pentium dual core?
I was pretty sure there was an E5500 in the Core 2 series but I am not seeing it. Please verify.
Your memory speed will be a deciding factor on how the OC is done in order to keep the CPU:RAM ratio at 1:1 or 1:2 for best performance. Sometimes that might mean underclocking your RAM to keep the best ratio. The G41 chipset is good up to 1333FSB or 333.33 MHz (333x4) Frequency which will correspond to 667MHz DDR2 (333x2) for a 1:1 ratio or 1333MHz DDR3 for a 1:2 ratio (333x2x2). For these cases you would increase the CPU frequency to 333MHz and lower the multiplier to 9 to start out for a 3.0GHz (2997MHz). Later when you establish stability, you can raise the multiplier to 10 (3.33GHz) if you have the thermal headroom.
You will need to fix the PCIe freq. to 100MHz so it does not climb too high and cause problems.
You will to disable C-1E initially
You will disable Speed Step initially
In this case you will need a memory multiplier of 4 for 1333MHz DDR3 memory. If your memory is not 1333MHz (1600MHz you would underclock it to 1333MHz) such as 1066MHz DDR3 then you would need to drop the CPU freq. to 266MHz and increase the CPU multiplier to 11 to start with and 12 is reasonable later.
See this for some more information:

You will need to monitor your temps and test for stability.
Use CPU-Z to monitor your overclock
Use Speedfan or HWmonitor to monitor temps
Prime 95 is a popular stress tester but it tends to push the temps up much higher than normal.

The HD 5450 is an older entry level card & the fanless (aka silent) versions are marketed for home theater systems. Overclocking it can't make up for it having only 80 shading units & 64-bit GDDR3 rather than 128-bit GDDR5. For better gaming performance, try lowering the game setting & game resolution. I'm not trying to discourage you from overclocking but you can only do so much with what you have.
