    Hi everyone,

    I recently got a new laptop for Christmas and was wondering about overclocking so I can run Guild wars 2. Everything I have seen on this topic says there are problems with Windows 8 and overclocking but I cant find any info less than 3 months old! Can anyone here help me with this? I just don't know Win 8. Win xp is easy but this is a whole new beast to me! I have an HP g6 2238-dx with 4 gigs ram and an AMD A8-4500m. All I need is .1 ghz to play that game! I don't need much and I don't need a 1.9 ghz processor to go to 5.0 ghz. Any advice would be appreciated! If you need more info let me know!

    Thanks!!

    Highly unlikely. Your BIOS is most likely very limited. Don't expect much from a $400 laptop. Have you tried running Guild Wars 2 as it currently sits??
