My S12 (VIA Nano version) came with original 1GB ram, and I have added the additional 2GB into my S12 (Total 3GB ram), the 3GB ram can be recognized in BIOS but it's running very slow and hang in the windows login screen.
I have asked Lenovo's customer service (Hong Kong) and they said that the S12 (VIA Nano version) can support up to total 3GB ram but I wonder that this is true.
Can anyone help me to confirm it and solve my problem?
Does anyone have the same situation? Thanks!

I have the exact same issue!!
I got my S12 Nano today, and added 2gb of Kingston pc2-5300 667mhz (value ram). I did turn off my paging file since 2.75gb is more than enough for such a system. I dont think it matters though.
Removed 2Gb -- and everything is back to normal.
Is this a driver problem???

My Via Nano S12 is having the same hanging issue after installing a 2 GB Kingston stick from NewEgg. At times it freezes when logging into a user account, other times it freezes within 4-5 minutes of use.
I'm running memtest on it at the moment fearing bad RAM. I'll give this BIOS update a shot after having read this thread. Anyone else have any luck getting this resolved?
