    Default IBM 5110 odd issue

    Hey there,
    I have had a 5110 for a while, and I had to re-seat the cards as they came out in the mail. However after booting up, first of all it starts in the second capital mode (i.e. it types Greek characters), but when I switch it to letters it is stuck in all caps. I took apart and checked all the keys (which is a pain, for anyone that has disassembled the keyboard before), all the boards seam to be seated properly, so I don't know what the cause of this is. Obviously, not being able to type numbers makes it a bit difficult to write any program on. Also, two things: how do I check how much ram is installed? and does anybody know where I could get a disk drive for it? (and maybe even some disks?)
    thanks,
    Harper.

    Also, another thing, does anyone know the specific flavor of BASIC running on the machine and a manual for it?

    Bitsavers has versions of the BASIC reference dating from 1978 and 1979 plus several user guides.
