Unlocking a locked bios? is it possible?

i have a dell xps 420 with a intel quad core processor running at 2.4 ghz
i am looking to overclock it but the bios seems to be locked
i was wodering if there were any tools out there that i could use to unlock it like a program that allows editing of software or something of the sorts
i just want to squeeze a little extra out of my cpu enev if i can only do a mild over clock i would be happy


Hi and welcome!

for some common motherboard Bios versions, there are often tweaked versions available.
Unfortunately this does not apply to Dell (and many other OEM) motherboards, so you will stick with stock speeds.
