Hi All,

I many years ago went through my share of Amigas. I progressed from the A500 to A1200 to even towering up one of them. After moving house I got rid of my tower now im sorry I did.I was clearing out my garrage recently and found an A1200 I used to use. However there is no sign of any leads power brick etc just a lonesome A1200 with internal hard drive and an expansion in the slot.

It prompted me nto hunt out my old discs and I had a copy of Amiga forever. However although this runs on my Windoze 7 machine I tried and failed to install Wordworh 7 or DPaint 5 from thee original CDs I still own. It reports that no discs are inserted and my attempts to do so manually also fail also. I do have a copy of the PC version of Wordworth 7 which I vastly prefer to using MS Word which for what I use a word processor for seems like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. This still works on my 32bit windoze 7 machine which was why I stuck to 32bit.

Hello and Welcome!

Sounds like the answer to your issues is just to get a PSU and power up the a1200!
