BIOS DESKTOP UNLOCK???

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Alright, so my HP desktop I have had since 2012. I've only been using it for gaming and now I have started to customise it and stuff. I need my pc mainly for video editing now and it's just been a bit slow. I will be replacing the power supply to a more powerful one but I realized that it has a AMD A10-5700. This computer is locked on 3.4GHz and won't go any higher. This APU can go up to 4Ghz. I was wondering if there was any way to unlock the BIOS... i don't want to buy an ASUS motherboard. Thanks 🙂 BTW, this is one of those "rare" costo computers. I only found one link to the exact computer, however there are many similar ones out there. http://reviews.costco.com/2070/100001441/hewlett-packard-hp-pavilion-p7-1298cb-desktop-with-2nd-gen-...

Hi,

 

HP locks the BIOS for the most part on many of it's PCs to prohibit overclocking.
