Post Upgrading the RAM in the Dell Mini 10v (with videos and guide) - 01-03-2010, 03:37 AM

Well i have noticed a-lot of people have someone do their RAM upgrade for them, but the person usually will not do it without charging. So here is a guide to do it easily (even for n00bs)

Default Thanks!

Great videos, thanks for the how-to.
I found that a guitar pick helps greatly when disassembling the plastic parts held by tabs. Made short work of the touchpad assy, keyboard, and sub-assembly.

Also, I used Patriot PSD22G8002S 2GB PC2-6400 800MHz CL5 with no problem.

Take the specs from this:

Even if he does drop it, would it actually work after being soaked in snow? (Mine, at least, gets pretty warm. Perfect computer for winter!)
LOL, and yea i agree with you with the HDD/SSD upgrade.

These instructions were great - intimidating at first but not too bad once you get into it! I used an old plastic pry tool that i got when i replaced an iPod battery years ago. It was great for the touch pad etc..

Thanks for this information. I didn't realize that the 10v memory module was replaceable. I thought after the Mini 9, they were all soldered on.

Purchasing my 2GB on Amazon now!

Thanks again!!

I just thought I'd comment that I did the 2gb install last night and everything went well. Took me about 35 minutes taking my time while watching Community. Used a Transcend stick from Newegg.

Thanks so much for the guide, I plan to follow it.

One small suggestion, listing the tools required in a list at the beginning of the guide would be helpful. Also, links to the correct memory module on newegg or equivalent would be nice also, though not as important

Dang...

This whole process took me about 2hours 30minutes to complete Luckily I know about hardware stuff as I used to be into computers, but wow is a netbook different.

The pieces are extremely small and started giving me an headache. The part that pissed me off the most was putting back the "keyboard ribbon" and attaching the "wifi white/black plugs". They are just so small or not user-friendly

Another thing I would like to thank Malicious for is telling me where the "bluetooth" module is suppose to me. I had NO LUCK finding guides for that, but it was simple to install.

Everything works great!
