You didn't bother to list a single thing about your system or the game you're trying to play, so we have no idea what's going on.

"I know there is away to speed it I cant remember how"

Sure - buy a new processor that's faster than the one you have, remove the old one & replace it with the faster one.

Of course, if you have a crappy video card, it won't matter how fast the processor is.

Hi, maybe you can try the following steps.
Shut down your computer.

Start up the computer, and press the appropriate key to enter
BIOS setup when prompted. A brief prompt should appear and
indicate which key you must press to enter BIOS setup.
Standard keys are the "delete" and "F" buttons. Sometimes
the prompt is so brief you might not have time to find and
press the key before your computer starts up. If this happens,
restart and press the key immediately.

Use the navigation instructions in your BIOS setup utility to
find management settings for FSB (front side bus) and FSB
multiplier. These settings gauge how fast the processor is
able to work. The exact menu names and navigation
instructions you must find will vary depending on your BIOS
and motherboard. Typically you will have to use the arrow
keys to select categories, and "Enter" to open menus.
"Escape" is often used to go back and exit BIOS at the main
BIOS menu.

Alter the FSB speed and/or FSB multiplier. If you want to
increase CPU speed, set the numbers so that your CPU
speed increases by 10 to 20 percent. The menu should show
your CPU clock speed, which will change when you alter the
settings. If you want to underclock, do the same thing but use
smaller numbers for FSB and/or the multiplier.

Change CPU voltage. If you alter the CPU run speed by
changing the FSB speed, the CPU will require more or less
power. Find a field for CPU voltage and alter it by a
percentage similar to the change in CPU run speed.

Press the appropriate key to save your changes when you are
finished, and exit BIOS to resume booting.

Please don't follow the above instructions. There's a lot more to overclocking than simply increasing the FSB or changing the multiplier.

Before doing anything, post your system specs....motherboard make/model, CPU make/model/speed/FSB, RAM amount/speed & most importantly, make/model of video card.

The problem with copying someone blindly & passing the info as yours is this: If they are miserably wrong or if the info falls short, you end up totally taking one on the chin ... lol!

@jessica_chen something
the thing is u seem to know nothing abt overclocking its not only changing Front side bus or cpu multiplier or anything u changer them but they are not inportant fr the other stuff like managing voltages RAM etc plz dont post something stupid
anyhow @aryan 234 post ur full system specs and listen to jam advice
