Question about ViewSonic Tablet PC V1100
Do you know what type of 512 module you installed? I just picked up a V1100 on eBay and really want to upgrade the RAM, but am afraid of compatability issues. If you could tell me the brand and or part number, that would be awesome. Thanks.

I don't know if you still need this info as you've not posted back here since your initial post but I finally took pics of the actual adapter from my V1100 that you'll need to install a hard drive in your tablet. Hope this helps and sorry about it taking so long.

I replaced the OEM 20gb HD on my V1100 last year with a 100gb laptop drive which I believe it was a standard IDE drive. One thing I seem to recall was that there is an "adapter" that fits over the pins on the drive's IDE connector and you may be missing that seeing it was purchased w/o a HD.
I am out of town returning home on 11/13 and will check mine out then and post back here.
BTW, I also upgraded the RAM by adding a 512mb modue bumping it up to 768mb which dramatically increased the tablet's performance immediately. I have not tried to replace the factory installed 256mb module yet but would think that as long as you keep things consistent in keeping with the OEM RAM specs you can probably replace it with a 512mb module of the same specs. ViewSonic's tech support was clueless in answering me last year when I queried them on upgrading the HD to 100gb and the RAM. They kept telling me that they were sure the mobo couldn't handle the larger HD and increased RAM, their "documentation" told them that the V1100 can only handle 512mb of RAM. Tech said they'd call me back and I never did hear back from them and went ahead and made the upgrades successfully. I have a Dell Latitude D620 w/Intel Core Duo CPU that is great but I love my V1100 tabletPC for reading and studying and for it's ease of use in that you don't have a screen to flip up and worry about breaking, etc..., and the fact it is wireless is great too.

Is it maybe possible it is a hardware prob? maybe the directional sensor in the tablet was displadced.
BTW i have the same tablet and need an harddrive replacement/upgrade, how did you manage to do that? what kind of drive and where to buy? Viewsonic seems not so eager to help me out with that.
