It's a notebook, and an HP. There is no way to overclock it, there might be some software that can, but i would highly recommend not using it.

You won't be able to game on it, or at least at decent settings and framerates. Probably the best you can do is put an SSD in and upgrade the ram.

Those computer are not meant for gaming at all. And most of the time the cooling system is just enough to keep the computer alive at stock setting so OC it is a bad idea unless you want to do like other folk on the forum and watercool your laptop.
