Hi - I'm a newb here and just wanted to say hello. I originally had an Amiga 1000 which I traded for a 2000. I just pulled the 2000 out of storage after 25 years! It took some work (new battery, new ATX PSU, service floppy drives) but it's alive again! Since then, I've added a Terrible Fire accelerator, IDE/CF drive, Gotek, 4X ROM switcher (1.3, 2.0, 3.X, DiagROM), and ECS Agnes and Denise. I'm still using the original 1084 monitor and 1010 external floppy drive. This thing is fun! I haven't re-capped it yet but that's a possible future project. I've included a picture. I hope to be able to find a Commodore user group somewhere nearby. I also have a C64 and VIC20 - fully operational. Thanks for checking this post out!

Welcome! That's a great-looking A2K you have there. Can I see what the top of your keyboard looks like? Curious which keyboard you got.

Which ATX PSU did you install? Was it a drop-in replacement?

Chances are good you shouldn't need to recap your A2K. It happens, but it's much less common to see those ones go poof like some of the others. Good news on your battery not killing the motherboard. That's the #1 Amiga killer!

Welcome. Great system to have and so many expansion possibilities. If I had the space, I would definitely like to get one of these big box Amigas.
