Hi Steve.

No problem, the guidelines for changing the hard drive are here:

As for replacing or upgrading memory, the NC10 has only the one memory slot and 
this is under a small panel which is easily removed compared to the steps for 
replacing the hard drive *smile*.  You can fit a maximum of 2GB in this machine 
where you substitute the provided 1GB module for a 2GB chip.

All the best, Ibrahim.

  Ibrahm, could you drop me a copy of those guidelines as well if poss?  My 
drive is working fine but I may upgrade in the near future.  Also, with the 
NC10, I know you can get the other 1 GB USB module to plug in for RAM but will 
it take a 2 or 4 GB block internally?

    Hi Saqib.

    As I've already mentioned, you don't have to do anything so drastic and 
potentially expensive as claim on your household policy; I believe your machine 
can easily be repaired with a lot less hassle and expense not to mention 
inconvenience.  Firstly, please try the suggestion of reformatting and 
reinstalling windows using the disks you got with your machine.  These will 
reinstall windows and the software and drivers that came with your netbook to 
pretty much the state it came in from the factory.  During the installation of 
windows, the disk will be reformatted and any bad sectors identified.  If the 
disk refuses to reformat correctly or damage to the drive means a lot of it is 
unusable after a full system reinstall, its time to replace the hard drive 
which although difficult is not impossible.  You could use this opportunity to 
buy a new and higher capacity hard drive, you can expect to pay around £35 for 
a new 160GB 2.5 inch SATA drive on EBay  though higher capacity drives are 
available and maybe very competitively priced.  In either case, once you have 
your new hard drive installed and I can send you instructions on how to do 
this, you will be able to reinstall windows using the disks as explained above.

    All the best, Ibrahim Gucukoglu.

      I do have house hold insurance but the trouble is that I only took the 
insurance out a couple of months ago and I don't feel comfortable making a 
claim so soon.

        Hi. When I try to get in to safe mode. The netbook just goes through a 
loop and restarts. Sounds like a hard disk problem to me. I took it into PC 
World today and they said that there is nothing that they could do as I'm not 
covered for accidental damage. The other thing is that they would of charged 
£30 to recover the machine. If there is damage to the disk then there is no way 
of recovering the hard disk. So I decided not to risk throwing £30 away. Sorry 
the machine is no more use than a paper weight now.

        Hi  Saqib, 

        While I cannot help directly with your NC10 problem, you may be able to 
use Safe Mode unassisted by running the open source and free NVDA Screen 
Reader. I have heard that it might be possible to use in Safe Mode with a USB 

        Take care

          Hi all. My NC10 netbook is playing up for some reason. Every time I 
try to boot it up it brings up an list of options. They are options relating to 
safe mode or starting Windows as normal. When I select any of these options the 
process just goes around in a loop and the netbook just reboots and I get the 
same screen with those options. I selected start windows as normal and when the 
XP logo appears on the screen the machine will then reboot its self. The 
machine did take a fall yesterday as it fell off my sofa arm and this problem 
accured. I went to shut it down and got up and nearly tripped over the wire and 
the netbook flew off the arm of the sofa.
