I HAVE 2 800XL WITH STANDARD MEMORY. THE 1 XL'S KEYBOARD WON'T
WORK. CAN I TAKE THE MEMORY OUT OF THIS ONE AND PUT IT IN THE
ONE THAT WORKS? IF SO, HOW DO I DO IT?


PLEASE, REPLY.

***** Answered by Michael Current, aa700:

No, you can't just take the memory from one and add it to the other.  Remember, 
Atari didn't build the 800XL to be memory-expandable.  This is why there is
a market for 3rd-party memory upgrades for the 800XL, such as those from
Newell and Innovative Concepts.  These upgrades include additional hardware 
besides the memory chips themselves.
