    your using an AMD e1-1500 which is a really low end APU from 2014
    a 1.48ghz cpu with inbuilt gpu aint gonna cut it even with optimizations

    also because its a laptop apu you wont be able to overclock it anyway

    basically laptops with that cpu were £200 at time of release aka really budget system

    You're just going to have to invest in a better computer if you want to play demanding emulators no way around it.

    You can but it is more difficult as they aren't cooled anywhere near as well as a desktop PC. Also yours is an APU not a separate GPU and CPU which could add complications or even make it impossible, I don't know enough about the one in your system to say for sure.

    Regardless on the system you have as others have mentioned it's not worth it anyway, you'll never add enough to make any real difference.

    Install linux if the programs you want are available there and I'm pretty sure almost all cpus are compatible with linux

    Go to the bios and increase the cpu multiplier, if you can. That's the most basic way to overclock. If your laptop's motherboard bios doesn't have that feature, forget other forms of oc. Invest in a better computer.
    Doesn't have to be new, you can make a very good computer with used server parts for around 200usd, they're at throwaway prices.
