A1200 8MB Fast RAM Memory Expansion


This memory expansion expands your Commodore Amiga 1200 computer's memory to a total of 10 Megabytes (MB). Extra memory is essential for many games and applications which require or can utilise more than the standard 2MB of RAM.

The 8MB memory increases Fast Memory on your computer and has the added benefit of inceasing the computer speed to 2.91 Millions of Instructions Per Second (MIPS).

Real Time Clock Installed

Hardware Installation

1 Power down the Amiga and monitor. Unplug all cables from the Amiga.

2 Anti-statically discharge yourself before handling the device. It is recommended to use an E.S.D. wrist strap for the installation process (such as Amiga Kit product code TLSASW001).

3 Turn over the Amiga and remove the plastic trap door cover by using a small coin/flat blade screw driver to gently lever open the plastic latch.

4 Align the memory expansion's 150-pin expansion connector with the gold contacts on the motherboard and push it on until fully in place. Do not push the expansion onto the motherboard's gold contact at an angle as this could bend or damage the pins in the connector. If the metal upper RF shielding is obstructing the installation of the card, then it may need to be gently bent upwards. It can also be loosened by opening the computer and loosing the securing screw.

5 Replace trap door cover, turn over, connect all cables and power on.
