So you want to upgrade your Eee PC 1000H’s memory. I will say that programs appear to be a little snappier now that I have 2GB’s installed. So how do you do it, you ask? I’ve put together a comprehensive “How-To” to show you.
This “How-To” was put together with the mindset that you aren’t really good with computers.
Getting to the old RAM:
With the bottom face up (preferably with a cloth or something to protect the top finish), locate the 2 screws closest to the battery that secure the auxiliary compartment lid. Unscrew these 2 screws with your screwdriver and place them aside.
Once the screws are removed, gently stick your fingernail in the center grove of the auxiliary compartment lid and pry open. In the center of the lid are 2 clips that you just have to be gentle with while pulling up and they will release.
With the auxiliary compartment lid set aside you can now see the 80GB Hard Drive, Wireless N Card and the RAM.
Taking out the old 1GB RAM
On each side of the RAM is a chrome fastener. Gently (with your fingers) push them away from the RAM until the RAM pops up to a 45 degree angle. Once it looks like the picture above, pull the RAM straight out.
Installing the *NEW* 2GB RAM
Installing the new RAM is as easy as uninstalling, just reverse!
Once you have inserted the new RAM into the slot at a 45 degree angle, all you have to do is push the ram flat against the motherboard until it “clips” into place by the RAM fasteners.
Now secure the auxiliary compartment lid back onto the Eee PC by placing the bottom (side without screws) 3 prongs in the Eee PC and gently apply pressure from the bottom to the top. Be cognizant of the 2 middle clips while you press gently. Now reinstall the screws.
Powering up the Eee PC 1000H with the new RAM
Here is the moment of truth. With everything reinstalled and seated properly your computer should turn on without a problem.
As soon as you see the ASUS splash screen press F2 to get into the BIOS. From the first screen of the BIOS you should now see 2048MB (2GB) installed. CONGRATULATIONS!
