First of all I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, neither am I asking how to get bios password.

I recently got a free Toshiba Satellite Pro L20 (2005 model, if I'm right.) and it's pretty slow. For regular office work it's good enough but I want to squeeze just the extra juice out of it.

Specs:
Intel Celeron M 360 1,4 @ 2,11
ATI Radeon Xpress 200m Chipset (With graphics card oc'd from 300mhz to 480)
512mb DDR2 ram.

As for the extra speed I have pinmodded my laptop, going from 1,4ghz to 1,86ghz (FSB 100 to 133) without any extra heat or voltage. I further got it to 2,11ghz in Windows XP using Codegen but I can't go any higher although I would like to. I checked the internet on how to unlock the bios using a key combination, I checked them all and only the Esc button would budge. When I press the Esc button it shows the POST message for less then a second and it just continues booting. Am I doing something wrong, and if I do what could it be?

And please; don't tell me not to overclock my laptop as I know what I'm doing ;).

If you need any more info just tell me.

Thanks in advance,
Patrick
