Acer aspire one D255E with 4gb

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i just bought a new Acer Aspire One D255E netbook im looking into upgrading the ram first from 1gb ddr3 to one stick of 4gb ddr3........

Will that be possible????

The other upgrade which wont be for awhile is the hdd i want to put in a 500gb WD Black drive......

Then the next problem is os after the drive im thinking a 64bit os maybe vista since i have an extra copy, so i can make use of the poss. 4gb of ram i want to install will that work???

The last question is how do i go about finding all the drivers for mobo and the rest????

Thanks guys...

It certainly sounds possible to me, and according to this Newegg review it is. Netbooks usually support up to 4GB of RAM.

A WD Scorpio Black HDD, like this? That'll work. However, I really recommend looking into an SSD, it'll make your netbook fly.

I recommend against installing Vista. Vista is a very resource heavy OS, and installing it will make your netbook operate very slowly. Windows XP, Ubuntu or reinstalling Windows 7 Starter is the best way to go.

You can find all the drivers at the manufacturer's website. Which is here. Another reason not to go Vista is that Asus doesn't have any drivers for Vista.
