got two new macs a mac classic and a plus. well the plus starts but i have no keyboard and the classic doesnt.

the classic turns on to a screen filled with white and black squares and hen sometimes actually gets to a screen with a mouse but nothing else.

the plus is different . it has no keyboard and the internal hard drive isn't spinning up. so i need to get a new key board and do the sticktion thing on the drive.

oh btw be fore yall tell me that the plus has no hard drive mine has the hyperdrive 20 upgrade.

ooooh, you're lucky to have a HyperDrive in your pus. Those things are pretty rare.

The Classic Sounds like it has problems with it's Analog board, though I'd check the Caps on the Motherboard (They like to fail and gum everything up). There are lot's of tutorials on the 'net about how to correct analog board and Capacitor problems, so it should be repairable, whatever the problem is.

Unless the PRAM battery leakage corroded traces or other contacts on the board, all you need to do is throw it in the dishwasher *no soap and no heat dry. Let it dry 2 or three days in low humidity and that should fix it.
