I have got ASUS A3520NB and I'd like get to know... Can I change any devices in this model?
I mean RAM memory, optical Drive, hard disk, etc...
1. How much memory can I have? 1GB, 2GB? Windows and Linux runs slowly at my notebook and for example when i watched a DVD movie with PowerDVD6 (in Windows XP, of course) then after 10 min. computer was shutdown.
2. Can I change CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive to DVD-dual or anything else without Asus logo (e.g. Lite-On, Samsung)? My  optical  drive  sometimes  can't  read  data  from CD & DVD disc and now I must repair it or buy some new.
3. Can I have 2 hard disks? How much GB hard disk can have for my model? And it is SATA or ATA? I need more space on my notebook.
4. Can i change anything else?

Thx a lot for answers and salute ;) !

PS. Sorry for my language but I can speak english not very well.

1. I use 1G, it is working.
Go Control panel-Power options and change the monitor off or system stand by time from 10min to unlimited (and change back when you close PowerDVD).
3. You can use additional external usb disk. Only one disk may be inserted. It has ATA-6 interface. The maximal capacity is about 160G today, I used 100G in A3N.
4. Why?

Hi Mohamad... sorry that I answer you so late but I found somethin' for you.
1.) BisonCam Driver for Vista (32-bit) - http://www.nishv.com/drivers/Bison_Camera_Vista32_NB.zip
http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=driverfile&dno=2882&i=0
*If it won't work, this is an article how to make camera  useless  on Vista (http://www.nishv.com/2007/06/02/make-bisoncam-work-on-windows-vista/)
2.) I'm not sure if there is another one driver for modem on Win Vista.
Maybe you'll can find it here http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=driver&maincat_no=135&prod_no=1078 but i don't know if the Realtek PCI-E Ethernet Driver
will works. On Asus Support site you'll find nothing for A3N Series with Win Vista :(
3.) I have an idea :D. Write me how to 'egypt reseller' in your own language is and  I'll search something on Google? Or there is another way - eBay...

Good luck ;)...
