Usually, this is done by altering settings in the BIOS.
You change the multiplier or clock speed therefore increasing the speed of the processor.
Do note though that it would be wise to only overclock in small increments and not one big jump. Also you need to have adequate cooling for your system as the more you overclock, the hotter it gets.
heres some links for you.

I have an AMD 2700 2.17 GHz and I've had some trouble myself to overclock, possibly because the processor is locked, or my MSI motherboard has issues with it....for starters, you could try checking out http://www.overclockers.com to find some information about overclocking your processor. Keeping your processor cool enough is key in oc'ing...I've found that cooling your system with coolant as opposed to traditional fans works really well. Hope this helps you a little.

Also, most PC manafactures i.e. Dell, compaq, HP, ect lock down the BIOS so you can not overclock. They still give you access to it, but don't let you access the CPU part of it.

I don't think im gonna overclock it, im gonna go buy a new mother board with at leat an 800 mhz FSB, and a new Intel P4 processor, then overclock that one, new fans. then a little editing of my personal linking =D thx so much man, for the heads up!! or i prolly would of killed my processor

What are you looking to gain by overclocking a new processor, the bus speed, ram speed and HD seek time are your bottel necks not the processor speeed when dealing with anything over 1 ghz. If you had an older system that you where trying to get some life out of I could see the point, overclocking a blazing fast AMD or P4 will gain you nothing.

Bballad you miss the point.... you do it because you are a geek and it's fun! Or because you can

Before you start, perhaps you might like to PM me to discuss details. If you want to try overclocking, I would certainly suggest using a throw-away bit of kit first?
Then you are into the realm of water cooled peltiers............run the processor at about 5C to minus 15C on idle?
What is it you want to do/ find out?
Let us know, and we will try to assist
