    Even in xp 32bit you cannot run SPDtool or Thaiphoon? In vista X64 is understandable, but in xp......

    Any help in overclocking a dv5t with a T9400? I've got no luck finding the PLL for it and just don't know how to do it. Help!!! A guide would be great.

    Thanks.

    If you post some pics of your motherboard we can help ID the chip.
    It's usually (but not always) near a crystal that says 14.318MHz.
    I guess the most common brand would be ICS.

    Another way to do it is by trial and error;
    download setfsb.
    select the first PLL (clock generator) and press getfsb and setfsb and see what happens, then if it doesn't work try the next PLL. Keep doing this until one works or until you run out of PLLs to choose.

    If setfsb doesn't work try clockgen.

    Please post any results.

    Software to detect *some* PLLs

    SiSoftware's Sandra diagnostic software can detect some PLLs. See more info here.

    How do you use si sandra to detect PLL?

    sean you shouldnt spend so much time trying to OC ur CPU, its not worth it as its not the bottleneck of your system its the 9600m gt. Even if you did manage to OC ur CPU the performance gains would be minor in most games as most of them are GPU dependent

    @sean473, click on the hardware tab then click on "mainboard".
    scroll down to "system clock generator" then look if "read back support" is "yes".

    I believe if "read back support" is yes then it has detected your PLL.
    I have tried it on my laptop and "read back support" is no.

    My guess would be that si sandra can not detect your PLL, have you tried the "trial and error" method with setfsb?
