Video tutorial: Upgrading RAM on an Eee PC 1008HA Seashell

Upgrading RAM on an Eee PC 1008HA SeashellThe Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell is beautifully super-slim 10-inch netbook. However, to maintain this slender form-factor the engineers have done a fabulous job in carefully cramming in all of the components into its chassis. We know that this is a sealed unit, which means that there are no access panels to change the RAM and it also has a sealed battery.

For those Eee PC 1008HA users who are wondering just how you go about changing the RAM, then check out a couple of videos after the jump. We already showed you the 1008HA teardown in pictures, but the video may be a little clearer.

Amusingly, instead of using a wrist strap once inside the Eee PC, the guy in the video decides to use bright yellow kitchen gloves to avoid static. The first video goes through opening the 1008HA and swapping out the RAM. The second video goes through putting everything back together. Check out both videos after the break.

    DON’T FOLLOW THIS PROCESS!!!!!
    SIMPLE ONE SCREW PANEL ON BACK OF UNIT IN THE MIDDLE. SIMPLY UNSCREW THAT PANEL AND “POP” IS OUT AND REMOVE OLD RAM FROM SIDE SPRING HOLDERS AND INSTALL NEW RAM.

    *****DO NOT FOLLOW THE PROCESS IN THIS VIDEO**********

Got something to say?
