Hi folks, Asking here as I reckon I'll get a helpful answer:

I switched on my old Mac SE20 for the first time in 6 months- Horror
of horrors, it didn't start up! No chuntering away as usual , no happy
mac icon (no unhappy mac one either) then after a delay the ?-floppy
icon. Dug out my "Don't panic" disk (min-system 6.0.3+Norton
utilities) but it just spat it out again. Ditto all the other system
floppies I could find.
Any suggestions or do I have to reconcile myself to the idea that my
first mac has died just months before our 20th anniversary?!
Thanks in anticipation,

(beat up MP2100 owner and some-time lurker)
