    Default Tandy 1000 HX does not boot

    My Tandy 1000 HX was working fine but now it boots to what seems to be an error screen - see image.
    Does anyone know what this information means?
    RAM problem? Video problem?

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Memory error. ftp://ftp.oldskool.org/pub/drivers/T...nce_Manual.pdf might be able to help locate exactly which chip. Should be a simple replacement once you find which one to replace.

    Thanks Trixter.
    I have opened up the HX and can see 8 RAM chips type 4067-15, 18 pin, all socketed.
    I have looked online for these but cannot find any.
    Does anyone know of a source for these?
    I am in the UK but anywhere will do.
    Thanks,
    Ray
