I have a g560 with i5-450m, 4gb ram, 320 gb hard drive with 2.02 bios.
I know that the i5-450 has the turbo boost technology, but how
do i enable it in the bios? I checked out the bios but didn't find anything
that allows me to enable the feature, unless I missed it...

How is Intel® Turbo Boost Technology enabled or disabled?
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology is usually enabled by default by a switch in the bios where you can either enable or disable operation. Other than this, there are no user controllable settings to change Intel® Turbo Boost Technology operation either in the hardware settings or operating system. Once enabled, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology works automatically under operating system control.

My guess is that it's on by default in the BIOS. On the other hand it's not a bad idea to check via software, like above, to see if it's working or not. Please check and report back, edit subject to (SOLVED) if all is sunny.
