I have added 1 gb of memory to my ZG5 thanks to this helpful guide. Total cost, including a spudger and a new mini screwdriver, to tackle the 00 Philips, GBP 17.57

I fear I haven't put the trackpad connector back properly, but device works great with a wireless mouse. Very many thanks.

Hi Doug,

I'm about to rebuild my old acer netbook ZG5 and discovered that there is nothing under the wireless card door. Does this mean that the wireless card is embedded? I ask because I am now doubting that the netbook was ever wifi (but it must have been.) Newegg doesn't seem to have any motherboards available for the ZG5 so I'm thinking I'll get one from ebay. Thanks for the guide.
