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)

No way! Ten minutes would be impossible, at least without scratches and destroying some stuff. Mine took about an hour-and-a-half and you'd never know the case was opened. One thing that really helped was a small computer tool kit that had some plastic pry-bars and a large tweezer. If ya don't have that find something made from soft plastic that is thin enough to pry with. It wasn't as bad as I thought, there was only one time where I wanted to throw the whole thing on the floor and stomp on it, but I came to my senses and cracked a beer instead

Some guys wrote that there is not a big difference reagarding performance between 1 or 2 GB ram used in the 10v.

What's your opinion?

I had mine with xp and 1GB and it was fine, then I upgraded to 2GB and didn t noticed much difference.

now, I got seven pro and altho I haven t tried it with only 1GB, I tried a Samsung netbook with the same CPU and seven starter and 1 GB, and it is much slower !

I dont believe it s the windows version that makes it slow, but the lack of ram especially when you have a look at the perf manager...

Success! Thanks!

One note: I couldn't get the Wireless card out - the screw was too tight. But the palm rest bracket came out ok when I lifted the back side first. I had to carefully put it back on when reassembling, but it was not a big problem.

Am I correct in assuming that this guide would apply just fine to the Dell Mini 1010 as well?

I tried this upgrade last week. Took the whole thing apart and discovered that in my version of the Mini 10v there is no card slot or card anywhere! Really!
I was totally miserable. And it was a big job to dismantle the whole thing.
Guess I'm stuck with 1GB because the RAM must be some kind of chip on board installation. Certainly there was no RAM that could be removed and replaced.
