I have an Abit BX6 and celeron 500 chip. The chip has an adapter on it because it's not a slot one chip. Using the soft menu in cmos can you tell me how to overclock it? I know all the chances of burning things out. I had a slot 1 300a chip in there before that I overclocked but I kept getting blue screens and freezeups.

You need to set the motherboard clock speed to something higher than 66MHz. I personally have a 400MHz Celeron running on a 75MHz motherboard, giving a clock of (75/66)*400 = 450MHz.

However, whether this does you any good largely depends on your plug-in cards. I have an AGP card which runs OK at the new 75MHz speed--if it didn't I'd be forced to clock the AGP back down to 2/3, or 50MHz, which would cripple the 3D card. You get similar difficulties with PCI cards--thus, overclocking the processor isn't always going to improve your performance.

I have an AGP video card, pci modem and soundcard. When I set the speed to 75 and reboot the computer doesn't bootup. I then have to go in and reset the cmos jumper on the motherboard.Is there another way to do it?

Unfortunately *all* modern Celerons are multiplier-locked--this means they will only run at a fixed multiple of the motherboard speed, so they can only be overclocked by upping the motherboard speed. As far as I know there's no way round this.

Try raising the Voltage in the BIOS under Advanced CPU Config (I think). Raise it in .05 intervals until it works (along with a 75 Mhz Bus).

If it doesn't boot and run Windows without crashing by 2.3V, then give up.
