how to overclock my 566MHz processor?

I don't have a clue.

I do have a question,,,,,WHY?

Let's say you could O/C to 800MHZ.

I wonder if you would see a diff.

I suspect what you might see is SMOKE.

Suggestion,,, work it from the other end.
Learn how to shut down all the unnecessary processes/tasks/rubbish that are of no value to you and make the machine run slow.

Where did you hear that it was a great overclocker??

That would be very old news and might be found in the vintage archives of the overclockers forums.

Other than the challenge, you won't notice much, especially with the 66 MHz memory bus. But you could get bragging rights in an old overclocker forum.

Most overclocking of real import is for the purpose of gaming.

Go google "How to overclock"

Hard part- open up your case somewhere near your processor there will be a silverish thing(about 1 cm in size) next to it is a black thing, copy everything down. That will be your PLL-stuff

Easy Part- Go to your bios and adjust your FSB if you can.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
