Hello all, I have been a long time lurker and this is my first post :-(

I purchased an Atari 1040 STE recently and it doesn’t boot. I get a white screen and the power light comes on and it never goes to the desktop, if I put a disk in the drive it does not start reading the disk.

I would love to get this machine working as I have been looking for one of these for a long time.

Thanks you for any help you guys can provide.

I would open it up, and reseat the memory first. Sounds like you are not even getting to the TOS boot yet.


Just white screen? no bombs etc?
