When i overclock my cpu using set fsb it gets reset after the restart because its software oc'ing.Is there any way to make this oc'ing perminant using software so it wont reset the speed everytime i restart.

PS.I have an OEM board so no overclocking on the bios

SPECS

I could be wrong, but I don't think there's an OC program that works that way. How many times do you reboot in a day?

BTW, it would help to post the correct model number. You have a Compaq Presario SG3440IL:

well normally because of me normal,software restarting and some crashes(my doing).about 15-25.yes,those are the hp oem s*** pc and mobo.but oc'ing gives me a real boost while playing PS2 and NDS Games on emulator.well 2.5 GHz is better then 2 GHz right!!!!!

Dont even know why i bought that pc.Was my first pc(too much excitement) and in the specs all i looked at are the processor(dumb me).

PS.I have 2 GB(Upgrade) ram not 1 GB.

If you have to reboot 15-25 times a day, your system must be pretty screwed up. Overclocking should be the least of your worries.

I would experiment with getting your system to run stable then overclock, 15-25 crashes a day is not hp`s fault there is something seriously wrong with your system.

A stable system running Windows 7 or Linux may need rebooting maybe four to six time per year at most and servers should be able to go two or more years without needing to be rebooted. Some Windows updates and installing or uninstalling some utilities may add to the number of needed reboots, but I would worry if you could not run it for a week straight without needing to restart it.
I am running 3 overclocked machines (2-W7, 1-XP) and do not turn them off, at night and when we are all at work, they are in sleep mode, and one is used by many people in the family, so I will occasionally restart it, at about 60 to 90 days typically (if it gets slow or buggy). This is what I call stable and you should at least try to achieve something similar.

"burnt pc"

Some people are simply not meant to work on computers.

Google "punch cards" ---- used those in High School on an IBM 1130 (Google that too)

"i dont have a 100 year old pc.your high school has a 100 year old pc that uses punch cards.lol"
That was back in the 1970's when it was relatively new. "PC" stands for 'Personal Computer' which that definitely was not.

IF you had a board that would allow you to OC directly, I could help, but all I know about software OC is that everyone who knows recommends against it. I had an E2160 @1.8GHz and ran it at 2.7GHz and even tried it briefly at 2.997GHz. Your E2180 runs at 200MHz Freq. x 10 (multiplier) or 2000MHz or 2.0GHz. In theory you could increase the base frequency from 200MHz to 300MHz, try the multiplier at 8x, 9x, and 10x for 2.4GHz. 2.7GHz, and 3.0GHz IF you could manage to manually set the memory so it would not be overclocked, fix your PCI and your PCIe freq's from increasing to a dangerous levels, manage a few other adjustments including possibly tweaking the CPU core voltage, and managing your temperatures. The CPU certainly could be overclocked, BUT your board most likely could not. If you could run one of these boards:

(One mATX, one ATX) You could ask again and we could give you more details, but you would need a decent graphics card (the G41 board has graphics, but you could not get a decent OC with the onboard graphics), probably an upgrade to your power supply, and possibly better or faster RAM. THEN you will need to understand that this E2180, even at it's best, will not he in the league of a Core 2 E7500 or an E8400 even before you overclock it (both I would recommend on the P43 board above if that is what you had). AND none of these would compare well to an i5-2500K on a decent board (I wish I had the spare money to play with one of those). The early Gigabyte G41 board I have that had the E2160 now has an E7500 running at 3.54GHz and I also have one of their P43 boards running an E8200 running at 3.2GHz (E8400 or E8500 would have been better but more expensive at the time). The Core 2 E7500 ran MUCH better than the old Pentium even before overclocking it which shows you that the advanced technology that went into the newer CPU has even more to do with performance than just speed alone.

Really, it would be better if you just saved for building a new system with improved modern technology with the plan of purchasing quality components that will stand up to overclocking.
