Hey folks! I’m Tyler.

Last week, one of our internet subscribers gave me a PCjr that had been stored in his attic for several years. I have the monitor and keyboard (not the chiclet keys), but the power adapter wasn’t included. So... I’m unable to test out the machine. Regardless, I am here to learn from and interact with you other PCjr owners. I have a small collection of 68k and PowerPC Macs, as well as an Apple IIe. This is my first ‘80s vintage IBM PC. Any things I should be mindful of before I put the juice to this thing?

Before you power it up, take the lid off and clean any dust out of it. I think there is a topic here somewhere on how to not kill an old jr.
Enhanced PCjr with a jr-IDE (1GB DOM) and a parallel port side car with a compact flash reader and backpack 1.44mb floppy attached. Tandy video mod.
