The only things you could hope to upgrade in a laptop that old is the RAM and the hard drive. if it's an x86 computer the most you get get is 4GBs of ram and maybe a 250GB IDE drive in that. Laptop's are not really meant for upgrading. It isn't cost effective to upgrade laptops anyways. Spend $300 on a new low end laptop and you will have something at least twice as powerful as this laptop you currently have.
This netbook is really the Acer Aspire One D255. You have to pop off the keyboard, then remove 4 screws that hold the back panel in place, which will allow you to remove that back panel in order to get to the memory.
There is some information on FixYa for this already which can be found at the post below. Generally with a laptop, you'll have some hidden screws under a bezel on the top of the keyboard area. You gently pop this off with a small screwdriver and underneath will be the screws that hold the keyboard in. After removing these, you generally can disassemble the rest of the laptop.
It depends on the model and processor but there may be a shiny metal bar that appears to go through the fan that is then clipped onto each side of the socket.
I there is then one side looks like it may hinge a little and what you would do is push down and away from the CPU this would release the fan so long as it was not stuck to the CPU (most are not but some are)
If you look carefully at the fan here also be small 4 black screws that may also allow you to release it.
For most coolers that would be enough and then you would just disconnect the flying lead and pop over to the nearest computer store for another one. without knowing the model of your computer or motherboard it is a little difficult to make a full assessment of what you need.
You don't have to take off the bottom. You need to take off the panel right in front of the screen
1. Pop off the strip in front of the keyboard. 2. Unscrew the 3 screws. 3. pop off the panel that has the startup button on it. 4. Take the keyboard and put in the replacement. 5. To put it back together.
