well you can download MSI afterburner and set it up and it allows you to overclock the gpu but overclocking can damage your GPU so be care to not overclock beyond its limit i would go up every 10 mhz and test it out with games to see if thats the right fps you want

The AMD A6 chips are great APU's, for what they are. Laptops aren't really designed to be overclocked. They simply don't have the cooling capabilities to keep up with it. If you want some faster performance, Get yourself a Solid State Drive instead of your regular hard drive and upgrade to Windows 8 Pro. Then, Maximize your RAM on your laptop to the most that it is capable of, which will leave more memory available for processing as well as more memory available for graphics side of things too.

Most laptops max out between 8GB and 16GB of RAM. And as far as Solid State Drives go, The Kingston V300 SSD's are relatively cheap at usually under $100 for a 240GB one from Newegg.. And if none of that is still fast enough, sell your laptop. Get a new one with an i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a dedicated 880m graphics card.

Cheers!

And overclocking a laptop is usually a losing proposition becasue it has very limited cooling and he could seriously decrease component life by cooking his laptop. So, Upgrading would be a more realistic performance upgrade that would yield safer results.
