This is how I upgraded the memory card on my Eee PC 1001P netbook from 1GB to 2GB. The 2GB does make the computer noticeably faster.
1) Laptop / netbook
2) small Phillips head screwdriver
3) new 2GB memory card
4) small flat-head screwdriver (optional for prying open compartment door)
Also, I made it at TechShop (http://techshop.ws/). And by made it, I mean made my netbook faster.
Step 1: Preping Your Computer's Operating System
Whenever you change BIOS settings (that includes installing hardware like RAM!) you first MUST disable BootBooster and Quiet Boot before installing.
Once you've installed the RAM you MUST immediately enter the BIOS again only to exit it without changing anything yourself (under the hood the RAM-count will be changed). Doing so you in fact acknowledge the RAM count. After that the 2GB should show up.
Power on and press [F2]. This should get you into the BIOS settings.
Go to the "Boot" section.
Find "Boot Booster" and set it to "Disabled".
Press [F10] to save and exit.
Step 2: Taking Off the Memory Card Compartment Lid
Step 4: Taking Out Your Old Memory Card
Note the positioning of the old card and how it fits into the computer before taking it out. The new card, once installed should look the same.
Step 5: Insert the New Memory Card.
Making sure that the notch is lined up, place the new memory card at a 45 degree angle and apply gentle pressure to gently lower the card below the two clips on either side of the memory card that will once again hold the memory card in place.
Step 6: Close Memory Card Cover
Step 7: Reboot Sytem in BIOS
You MUST immediately enter the BIOS again only to exit it without changing anything yourself (under the hood the RAM-count will be changed).
To enter BIOS, power on your computer and immediately begin pressing the F2 button. This should bring up your BIOS settings. Doing is necessary and will allow you to check to make sure that the correct RAM is being recognized by your machine.
If your computer sees the new memory card you did it. Congrats!
