To be able to switch to PAL on an NTSC Amiga 500 (or use 1MB of chip RAM) you have to have an 8372A fat Agnus chip (or some models of 8375). You can wire up a physical switch to one of the pins, or...

If there is no raw tool that will test and tell you what RAM is bad, then likely you'll just have to socket it all and test one by one. I would have thought that diagrom would do that, but I suppose...

I love the 1000 design, but if it has one fault, it's that the case is a little too flimsy. With a monitor sitting on it, it stresses the plastic some and bends a little out of shape over time.

You have a way to image the disk?

DeluxePaint was released at the same time as the Amiga 1000, so the internal tool called "Prism" definitely was never released. This is a different program.
