Hi i have just installed some new roms and when I boot I hear the disk drive clicking and there is some activity on the screen. Thats about all I can get and sometimes i get purple screen. Is it my motherboard or Roms or what?
Thank you any help would be great :-D

Is this the one where there is a gap at one end of the socket and you may have mis-fitted the roms ? What sort of activity do you see on the screen ?

The roms are fitted correctly with a gap on the left and the words are facing the front on the amiga. The screen kind of flickers like changing screen modes on a pc.

If you are sure that all the legs are inserted, and that the chips are in the right sockets, then maybe you need to refit the old roms to verify all is working. Are these definately A1200 roms ?

I will try to reinstall the old chips and then the new. I have checked pictures of motherboards and they look correct and I followed the instructions. Any way thank you for the help so far. Hope I wont need any more but with amiga's I bet i can :lol: This bring back memories. I will get back to you. :-)
