overclock medion MD 5000

Specs: Windows XP Home, Pentium 4 2.8 GHz
I have a 2nd-hand medion PC with a MD 5000 motherboard (aka MS 6701) with a Pentium 4 2.8GHz processor and 1 GB RAM.

The Original System clock speed on this is 200 MHz but the actual system clock speed is only 100MHz so it is basically running as a 1.4GHz processor.

The Bios does not give access to the Multiplier etc. fields to increase the clock speed but the performance is not good and I would like to be able to use the processor I paid for.

I've downloaded several overclocking programs but they don't seem to support this motherboard.

Any suggestions as to progress this?

The multiplier on your CPU is locked, so changing it isn't an option, even if the BIOS supported it. And the board only supports 400MHz or 533MHz FSB, so if you install an 800MHz FSB CPU, the best you're going to get out of it is 14 x 133MHz (1.87GHz) unless you have the option to increase the CPU frequency in the BIOS. Lock the AGP at 67MHz, disable Spread Spectrum, & set the RAM speed to DDR333 (unless you have DDR266).
