Drivers

The U1A is basically a rebadged Tabletkiosk i7209 so you can download all the drivers from the Tabletkiosk website.


Memory Upgrades

The U1A had one memory slot which can be accessed by removing the back panel.

  1. First remove the battery and the battery cover.
  2. Next remove the 8 screws that hold the back cover on. One of the screws is covered by the warranty sticker so I'm guessing removing that will void your warranty.
  3. Once the screws are removed unclip the back cover. Using your fingernails and starting from the battery cover edge, gently prise your nail under the join of the back cover, eventually you will feel and hear a gentle click as the cover releases. Continue your way around the back cover until all edges are released. I'm not sure how many clips there are in total, some sources say only two at the bottom of the battery bay but there may be more.
  4. Gently lift the cover off, there are no connecting cables etc to worry about.
  5. The memory module is right in the middle. Release it by gently prising the edge clips outwards. The memory module will pop up at a 45 angle.
  6. Fit the replacement module and clip the cover back on. The PC should automatically detect the new memory.

Adding RAM is the most cost effective way to boost your computer's performance.
