I own the Asus 1005-PE MU 27 netbook - see link below. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003JZC5K6/ref=oss_product)
It came with 1GB of RAM that was upgradable to 2GB. Given the somewhat so-so performance at times of the netbook, I opted to upgrade to 2GB. I did some homework and found that users who bought this particular brand of memory did not have any issues (apparently some had problems with the memory from other brands).
Sure enough, I installed the chip and it worked perfectly fine. No problems whatsoever with booting the computer and shutdowns (which was reported by others in the past with other chips).
For full disclosure, I am somewhat of a hardware idiot, meaning I am certainly not one who is good at opening up a computer and messing around with internal components.
But this one was easy. Unscrewed one screw, opened the panel, took out the old chip, carefully put the new one in. Turned on the netbook, pressed F2 to get...
Used it on my Asus EEE 1005HA-17bk. The installation was pretty simple. I had already updated my bios through the asus update tool prior to the installation of this item. Fast-boot does not need to be disabled. You just turn computer off, unplug from power cord, and remove battery prior to installation. The next steps are very simple and can be found on the asus1005ha.com website with a video aswell.
After the installation you put the battery back in and plug it to the power cord. When turning on the computer you press F2 for the computer to boot into the bios set up and on the first screen should say "memory: 2gb" meaning it has recognized it. Then if you want to make sure you can run the memory test option if there is one on the bios and then go to exit and save settings. The computer turns off and boots like normal.
I also found a little tip to make the computer even better. Just use a micro sd or a flash drive and when you plug it in windows should pop up...
1. With the original 1gb RAM in your Asus eeePC, shut down the computer and take out the batter. When you boot it back up, hold down F2 to go to the BIOS menu. Under the "Boot" tab, disable "boot booster" by pressing the - key.
2. Install the 2gb Kingston RAM and turn on the computer while holding F2. Select "boot" in the BIOS menu and enable the "boot booster" by pressing the - key.
3. Press F10 to save the current settings.
4. Go to the control panel and select "view basic information about your computer" to make sure your Asus reads 2gb of memory. If not... may you find the patience and will power to scour the web for forums. eeeuser.com is where I learned this.
I learned the hard way because I simply installed the 2gb Kingston memory, but my computer showed only 1gb of memory. I tried to go to the BIOS by pressing F2 but my screen showed the "Diagnostic Tools" menu which didn't give me access to the boot booster. I had to install...
