The Asus Eee PC 1101HA laptop is the first member of the Eee PC family to have a BIOS-level utility for adjusting the clock speed. Here’s how it works. MJost Eee PC netbooks have a Windows utility that lets you adjust the clock speed by choosing “power saving,” “high performance,” or “super high performance modes.” On the Eee PC 1101HA, you can tweak just how much of a speed boost you’ll get at each setting by selecting a value between 15% and 32%.
But there’s a problem. If you upgrade the RAM from 1GB to 2GB, the overclock feature isn’t available in the BIOS. At least, that’s what has been widely reported. But a member of the EeeUser Forums asked Asus support for clarification on the issue, and it turns out that it’s not all 2GB RAM DIMMs. It’s just most of them. There are, however, apparently two models that are supported:
- DDR2-667 SO-D UNIFOSA 2GB 200P
- DDRII800 SO-D HYNIX 2GB 200P
There are no plans to expand the list to include other types of RAM, and I haven’t seen any confirmation from anyone that even these models will work. Do you have an Asus Eee PC 1101HA? Have you tried upgrading the RAM? Let us know about your experience in the comments.
