  1. You might want to check out the ASUS website for your device. Unfortunately, the memory cannot be upgraded in this machine:

    Quote:
    The memory is fixed on the motherboard and there is no SO-DIMM on the motherboard. The On Board Memory is unable to be removed or replaced for extending.


    http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/Eee_PC_1011PX/#specifications

    These things are far from powerhouses so my suggestion would be to keep your running processes to a minimum and even keep an eye on Resource Monitor to see what may be hogging your resources (Run > resmon). You might also consider defragging the hard drive or running disk cleanup.

    Otherwise, give us a bit more detail about whats running during the slowdown, maybe we can offer a bit more specific instruction.

  5. Thank u so much for ur concern but i have seen video in youtube according to which we can enhance ram capacity. As for as routine usage is concerned, normally i use it for net surfing, microsoft outlook, word, torrent etc.

    Netbooks are cheap and use slow CPUs, that often causes people to not be happy with how they perform after they buy them. If you found a video where someone explains how to upgrade the RAM in your laptop, follow along with it and do the upgrade because according to the people that made the laptop, you can't upgrade the RAM.

    Make sure you don't have viruses, spyware, etc.. on the system. Although with 1 gig of RAM and using that computer, it will be pretty slow, or at least slower than you'd want it to be.

    If you are talking about this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-pmhS5klis, did you read the comments? Either the model in the video is not the same one, or there are different versions. If your laptop has the RAM slot, get a 2gb stick of RAM for it. You can find the right upgrade on www.crucial.com, would be easiest to find a compatible module there. If you don't have that same RAM slot, you can't upgrade the RAM.

    Make sure you don't have viruses, spyware, etc.. on the system, all those will slow the computer down.

    From the Asus website the memory is 1gb/2gb *1, the *1 is for the 2gb vers, and says

    "*1 : The memory is fixed on the motherboard and there is no SO-DIMM on the motherboard. The On Board Memory is unable to be removed or replaced for extending."

    Well thats the way i read it anyway, i have the factory 1gb vers and you can 100% remove the ram chip (i just have to check). I dont know as it doesnt affect me as mine came with a free upgrade to standard windows 7 but i was told by somebody when i bought it ( 2 years ago) that 7 starter doesnt support more than 1gb ram, i'd check before i buy.

    PS the cruicial website auto tool also says mine can take a 2gb ddr3 upgrade.

    Edit, looks like some of the 1gb vers have the memory hardwired, and some dont, so its a case of popping off the memory cover and visually seeing which one you have.
