2021-08-01: I re-created this page on my self-hosted web server.
2015-10-06: memory - I contemplated trying a memory upgrade to 16 GB (2 x 8 GB). Did a bit of research on the web. This machine has a HM55 Express chipset, which doesn't limit you to a specific amount of memory. However, the memory controller is on / in the CPU, and the consensus is that the i3-370M (and other cpu's from same generation) can only support a maximum of 8 GB memory. Oh, and the cpu is soldered onto the motherboard.
2012-06-25: memory. Tired of having only 4GB in the machine, I bought 2 x 4 GB DDR3 SO-DIMM 1066 MHz CL7 (PC8500) for NOK 790.- from Digital Impuls (varenr: 114198). Now to see if that will work in this machine. Update: yes, it worked nicely. The old DIMMs was 2GB 2Rx8 PC3-10600S 9-10-F2 (HMT125S6TFR8C-H9). dmidecode output: before, after upgrade.
2011-10-16: The newest bios available is still version 208 (08/10/2010).
2010-09-26: Upgraded the bios to version 208 (08/10/2010) using WinFlash in win7.
2010-09-25: The newest bios available is version 208 (08/10/2010). The machine came with bios version 205 (05/13/2010) installed.
2010-09-25: I bought this laptop. It came with Win7 on it. I elected english language on install. The disk layout is like this : 1. recovery partition, 2. win C drive, 3. win D drive.
