Purchased the OCZ during Amazon s last super special. Installed the 2gig memory into an Acer Aspire One D250. Turned off the computer, removed the battery. Let sit for a few minutes to disspiate any leftover charge. Found a philips head screwdriver that fit...have to be careful with screwdriver selection. Wrong sized tip can easily deform the soft screw head...its on pretty snug. Popped open the cover (its the one in the middle). The old memory chip is held in by two chromed rails, one on each end. Pull the ends of the rails outwards simultaneously and the memory chip pops up at a 45degree angle. Ground myself by touching something metal. Removed the old memory. Next lined up the new memory into the slot (can only go on one way with the slot on the memory board facing the front of the computer) and wiggled it down until the brass contact points disappear. Pushed down the memory and the two chrome rails snapped into place with its tiny nubs falling into the memory board cutout on the sides. If the memory is not seated all the way down, these rails do not lock down.
Put the battery back in and fired up the computer. After it has finished booting, hit control-alt-delete to bring up the task manager. Look under the performance tab and noted the acer recognized the memory; proudly displaying 2086780! Could not be easier. Only problem was getting the proper screwdriver head to fit.
