It will come with Windows 7 Home Premium, and the 6-cell battery should last for 8 hours.




CPU speed 1.33, 2gb ram is why it's slow
Hi Doc

Any ideas where the HD is on this model.

If it is not accessable from the bottom panel, then it might be hidden under the keyboard panel. I remember seeing one laptop that way.

Your welcome Sandra, glad we could help. Hope the reseating gets it working. Please post back results.

Good day Thorsen,

Do you really think that if I can reseat the HD myself then my netbook will switch back to the original Win7 Home premium?

I'm willing to try again but it's a bit complicated with this model with removing the keyboard etc.

If it wasn't for this guide...

What a ridiculous complicated way to assemble a netbook. I sure hope I'll be able to assemble it again..

Make sure you are earthed.

Good day Theog,

Must I not switch on the power for a short period so that the netbook knows there isn't a HD connected?

It seems to me that if I just reseat the HD the netbook won't notice any difference.

Thank you

Ok done (using a kitchen knife)


When I turned on my netbook a lot smoke was coming out of it and then ...Kidding

No seriously no difference, if I look at System Overview(Main) there nothing about HD


Does anyone has an idea??

Im not really familiar with your BIOS...

Is there an advance section that you can use the arrow key to get to?

See if there's anything that says "SATA Mode". Is it listed as AHCI ?

And, How is your boot order listed? Is the HDD first in the list?

Hi there,

At the advanced Settings there's nothing about SATA

But at the boot Device Priority SATA:PM-Hitachi HT is listed as the 2nd Boot Device

1st is Removable Device.

Could this be the problem?


Thank you
