History / work log

2021-08-25: I re-created this page on my self-hosted web server.

2012-07-19: memory upgrade: I bought one 1GB SO-DIMM PC2700 (NOK 325.- from Digital Impuls, varenr. 115554) and installed in the machine. Installation was easy: after taking out the battery, just unclip the keyboard (two clips on top) and turn it over (carefully, don't damage the keyboard cable), unscrew the cover (four small screws) insert the SO-DIMM, replace everything and you're set. The machine now has 1.5 GB memory. Battery: the battery is dead - the machine refuse to power up unless the power adapter is plugged in.

2012-07-18: according to this is the A1134 Mid-2005 model. It takes one single SO-DIMM of PC2700 DDR SDRAM.

2011-10-25: I bought this machine for NOK 800.- The machine came with a power adapter, but without install media.
