Right now, the board is having some issue with some users.  There is no information as to where you are from.  I am sure someone would give you some leads if we know what country you are talking about. 

Please let us know.

Ruiz,
Follow this LINK.  This will show you a video of the memory upgrade process.  I don't know what effect this will have on your warranty.

Well, the video works well for the 1008HA, but what about the 1005HA?  I read that the 1005HA has an access panel, but I haven't been able to determine what type of RAM will be compatible.  I'm assuming that a 200-Pin DDR2 800 laptop RAM should work fine, but is there any way you can confirm?  Any special instructions or suggestions that I need to read over to make sure that there aren't any issues once the RAM is installed?  And what about the warranty?  I'd imagine that since there is an access panel I'd be covered if I wanted to upgrade the RAM.  I happen to be from the USA and the 1005HA is coming out in my area on July 1st so I want to make sure I have all the information I need before I decide to make any changes.

Go read HERE.  The 1005 is a 1008 with a removable battery and a slightly slower processor.  The 800 MHz memory should work fine but everything I find calls out for 667 MHz.  Typically, however, the 800 MHz will work at the lower speed equally well.

Is it as easy as opening the panel and putting the new chip in?

This should work for the mechanical instructions.

1. turn off the netbok and removet he battery
2. put it upside down on a nonscratch survace and best if you ground yourself
3. use a small phillips screwdriver to loosen the screw and pull off the memory cover.  It does make a couple of clicks.
4. using a small screwdriver, push the two side brackets holding the memory in a direction away form the memory chip, one after the other.  The memory chip will pop up to about 45 degrees
5. gently removet the old chip and replace it with the new one.  Line up the groove on the chip and insert it at the same angle you take the old one out.
6. gently push down on the chep from both sides so as to bring it flat on the motherboard.  It will firmly click in place on both sides.
7. put back the memory cover and the battery and reboot,
