Acer Aspire One D257 RAM Upgrade

The Acer Aspire One D257 is a capable netbook, but one of the choke points of the system is that it is supplied with 1Gb of RAM, this can be easily upgraded by the user to a maximum of 2Gb and this is one upgrade that I reccommend all users consider.

It is a fairly simple process that can be done without any issues by taking your time and being careful.  It isn’t like your desktop where the RAM upgrade is almost foolproof, here you will need to undone some very delicate clips and leads, my best advice is :

1.  Take your time.

2.  Don’t force anything, if it is isn’t going, it won’t go.

Then my next bit of advice is watch this video, it isn’t mine, but I used it and it is very good and well explained :

From this video you will see that this can be broken down into a number of simple parts…

ACF-50
ACF-50

I thought this would be a good potential way to attack, but not necessarily kill two birds with one stone.  I recently purchased some ACF-50 (Anti Corrosion Formula 50) to treat and protect my new bike for the rest of the winter, from the rest of the winter, and after much reading ACF-50 seems to be the product to do that!

Mac Tip : How to burn ISO disc images

I thought this may be useful to some:

I recently decided to have a look at Windows 8, and as I am now a Mac User I had an old copy of Windows that I could upgrade on a spare parts machine. I needed to install Windows on the MAc to be able to upgrade it, but to be honest I am still learning at OSX. I needed to burn an ISO of the windows disk to a DVD and I had no idea what I needed or how to do it. I know that on the PC I needed separate software, thankfully with the Mac it was much easier, in fact it is this easy…

1. Insert a blank disc.
2. Start Disk Utility.
3. From the File menu, choose Open Disk Image and select the ISO to be burned.
4. In the list of volumes, you will now see an item representing the ISO file. Select it.
4. Click the Burn button and follow the instructions.

Easy eh?!
