I bought an apple //e motherboard on ebay,
and I don't have an apple //e keyboard to attach to it,
so all I can do is plug in a monitor, power from an apple ][+ power supply,
and a speaker...
when i turn it on, the screen has lots of little colorful squares on it,
the screen is full of them, but the computer does not beep, and does not much else,
occassionaly the random colourful dots ocassionaly shift around randomly, and the
speaker makes a squabbling kind of sound like it's resetting itself in rapid succession
or something like that...
so my question is, does a keyboard have to be attached to the //e? before it will work properly?
or should it not matter? I am really hoping I did not get a bumb //e mother board...
thanks any help would be appreciated.
