Apple IIGS

Recommended Posts

I have a mid-1980s Apple II GS and I use it for the data base as it keep track of my newspaper subscription. I love the way I can sort by the different field AND I print on continuous feed paper and labels. 

Just recently, when I put the start up disk in, it said "cannot load prodos". I tried another disk and it allowed me to go to the start menu, however, when I flipped the disk over to the program side, it went to the getting started menu saying the date needed to be later than 3/20/83 and then it said to it "return"... I did and a bunch of letter and numbers appeared such as A=0020  X-00F8  Y=0029  S=1FS3   D=000   P=75   B=00  K=00  M=04  Q=80  L=1  m=1  x=1  e=1      AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY MEAN.

At this time, I feel the computer works but it seems it is the disks. I would like to know if there are some "disks out there somewhere" that I could obtain.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Vivian [email protected]

That happens when the computer crashes into the monitor (BRK opcode) - prolly went off the rails somewhere.  That's unusual, AppleWorks doesn't generally do that.
