i have spare laptop cdroms if you havent got one sorted...i also have 2 spare a1200 keyboards...but alas they are yellowed.

Cheers Doogie,

Jimbob Has offered to send me a Laptop drive, But will let you know if he cannot find it.

Yellowed Keys.... mate you've seen my Orange Keys :lol:
Yes please I would be very grateful If you could send me a full set of keytops & springs from one of your spare boards, the least yellowed ones would be nice, I'm sure they are better than Tango orange!!

Not wishing to sound cheeky you wouldn't have a spare A1200 trapdoor and 2.5" IDE cable that could mysteriously disappear too :wink:

As ever Doog you are a great friend.
