Memory upgrade of Acer Aspire ONE D270-26Dkk ?

I have been offered the Acer Aspire One D270-26kk but the only information I can find regarding the memory is that it is not upgradeable...all the other models that I have previously owned in this line have been upgradeable from 1gb RAM to 2gb RAM...does anybody know if this is upgradeable to the 2gb RAM ?

 

Hope somebody may know the answer !

 

Thanks,

I have a D270 and yes it is upgradable to 2GB of RAM - I have doen it. As you may know, there is only one slot so you have to buy a 2GB stick and disgard the 1GB. The job is a bit fiddly but there is a movie on youtube showing how to do it. I don't have the link handy just now but a search should bring it up. Try this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEcIer28aNc

Good luck with the upgrade, it is worth it.

With some changes to Windows 7 Starter more memory is possible. I have 4GB installed on mine.

Ok, so the basic information for this method is on this website: http://www.unawave.de/windows-7-tipps/32-bit-ram-barrier.html?lang=EN

 

The actual source for the software now is on a different site now, although if you are confident of making the changes yourself then use the instuctions from the first site:

 

http://www.bcastell.com/tech-articles/enabling-more-than-4-gb-of-ram-under-windows-7-32-bit/

 

I have used this successfully with no problems, but of course if this causes your computer to give you white smoke I'm not responsible.

 

If you have any further problems feel free to ask, and I will try and help if I can, but I am not a computer or programming expert, I simply search for solutions and follow the instructions...

Hi! colin316, can you give me the specs of the RAM you used on the Aspire One D270? (MHz, rank, ecc/non-ecc/ cl7/cl9...). I want to upgrade mine too.
