The Slightly Hellish RAM Upgade and Why I've Started Taking Heroin
My Acer Aspire One AOA150 netbook was thrashing like mad lately. No surprise since this was a stock unit with only 1GB of ram. I ordered a 1GB SODIMM from Crucial to take the installed RAM to the maximum 1.5GB limit.
To get at the RAM socket, one must disassemble the netbook. The repair guide was a great help. However, those guy and gals on the assembly line wanted to have a little fun that day by setting the torque on their power screwdivers a bit high. A majority of the screws came out fine, but there were two that absolutely refused to budge. I finally got them out after many naughty words and threatening to drill the screw out. The rest of the upgrade went without a hitch.
Be prepared for sticky screws. These screws have blue Loc-Tite on them which doesn't help matters.
