"I think I just managed the upgrade.

My wife's Acer is a D255E, and I took it to 2Gb...it boots, but I don't have her password to check the System settings.

The above is correct, ignore the screws on the back they are a red-herring. Pry the keyboard off. To do this, look carefully on the left, right and top: there are small little tabs that are spring loaded that are easy to push back with a 1/8" jeweler's flat screwdriver. There are one each on the sides, and 3-4 across the top...once pushed back the keyboard can be popped out. I left it tethered.

Once behind the keyboard you'll notice a large silver metal plate about the size of a 2.5" drive. There are 4 screws labeled "Door", roughly on the 4 four corners of this plate that come out with an 1/8" jeweler's phillips. Ignore the other screws. Once these four are out, tip the netbook on its side and push a small screw driver into the hole in the plate....a section of the back will pop off (the area with the stickers and roughly bounded by the 4 rubber "feet") once this is pried off, the memory and hard disc are easily access.

To close repeat the above, in reverse (you made it this far, you'll be able to figure out how to undo it)."

Out of the box the wireless card is Doa.
It worked for a few mins.

uninstall / reinstall wireless = same
New driver = same.

Wireless card is Aethoros or something.

Never buying Acer again.

Complete rubbish.  Glossy finish and Logo all over the front cover.

Replaceing with something better.
