    So I recently posted a thread on how I found an Apple IIe in a closet at my school.

    I just got around to booting it up today, and the monitor just says "Apple IIe" and nothing else. I pressed Control-Solid Apple-Reset and it did its hardware test. Everything was fine.

    So I'm just wondering how to boot into BASIC... Do I need an 80-column video card in there or something? Inside the computer I only see a floppy card and a 64k memory expansion in the aux slot.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!:D:D

    Holding down Control while pressing and releasing reset then releasing Control (called "doing a Ctrl-Reset") will send you into Applesoft without having to boot a disk.
