Please tell us more details about your experience!
Well, I had a celeron a overclocked, thinking it was stable and for a month I was getting errors. When I tried going back to the original settings, it only helped but the cpu was still unstable. That was first experience with overclocking too.
I had an Athlon 64 that was primed95 stable @ 2.5ghz, and I used as litle voltage as I could get away with. Then I installed FarCry and it wouldnt run. I thought it was a video card error but adding more voltage or decreasing the clock speed fixed the problem.
My GeForce 4200 DIED from overclocking, yet again I didnt know enough. I was still new to the overclocking scene and thought that since everyone else could get 4600 speeds, so could I. Logically it made sense, in powerstrip I was still in the green zone, so I thought it was safe. I even had light artifacts, but didnt even know what they were. I just thought they were bugs in the game. Six months later my card died.
Just be carefull and make sure that your system is completely stable. Im not undervolting just to be on the safe side, and I keep my video overclocks very mild now. I want this laptop to last me three years too.
