I cant overlocking R7 M265

Hi, my computer is a Lenovo G510, with these features:

  • Two module 16GB RAM DDR3L 1600MHz CL9
  • 480 GB ROM 5400Rpm
  • Windows 10 Home ( Previously I had "Windows 8.1", but I made a clean installation of "Windows 10 Home", previously deleting all partitions of the disk and formatting everything)
  • i7 4702MQ processor (with integrated 4600 graphics)
  • The name of the Motherboard is not, but I know that the version of your BIOS is: 79CN46WW (v3.05) 12/23/2013
  • Dedicated graphics: AMD R7 M265 (2gb VRAM).

The driver version for my R7 M265 is the "Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.1".

I have seen people who have been able to overclock this graphic, but I have not been able to with MSI Afterburner or with "Radeon WattMan" because the latter does not appear in the "Radeon configuration".

These features do not apply to laptops. Only discrete desktop units. Generally, it's advised against...heat is the big issue.

The heat is not a problem for me at rest has 42-45 ° C and when I play and activate my external cooling base, it does not rise from 57-58 ° C. I need to overclock it since it goes up to 60-65 ° C is not a problem.

There is no overclocking support for laptops.

And how can I activate it? With a custom Bios?

Ask your questions in the Lenovo forum...or ask Lenovo.

here a "hint"

download latest MSI Afterburner
run as admin
go into settings: choose your M265
check: unlock voltage control + unlock voltage monitoring + extend official overclocking limits + disable ULPS
restart your PC
after reboot go into AMD Driver and Wattman and OC your GPU

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

I do not have AMD Overdrive installed, I only have "Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.1" installed ... How do I install AMD Overdrive ?. Would it not conflict with "Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.1" ?.
In my post above in the last paragraph I put that Wattman does not appear in "Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.7.1".

I do not have Control catalyst installed either, I installed it and there was no overclock option.

you use MSI Afterburner to bypass block of Wattman on laptops...

I have tried the video and it does not work for me, the owner of the video has another version of the Adrenalin drivers.

has nothing to do with drivers

any crimson or adrenalin that has wattman can be unlocked this way
you either do it wrong or not as admin or didnt restart

ps just to check i did it with my laptop yesterday and it worked

What graphics do you have on your laptop? Within a few days I will make a video with your procedure so you can see that I do not do it wrong. Also, thank you very much.

The only thing that occurs to me is that Lenovo has BIOS blocking. It's possible?

actually no - its a software switch that enables Wattman on AMD CPUs
