That matches my memory of the 2000 (from last night). Other interesting
attributes: the trademark Kaypro brushed aluminum case, and a mobo in
which *every* chip is socketed, even the cheap TTL logic. That should
make it easy to work on, but probably also expalins why it's not working
at present.

Somebody mentioned the battery as a possible culprit. AFAICT, the battery
should not affect bootability. For one thing, I couldn't find either a
CMOS battery or a bridge battery, and the main battery seems to be in
parallel with the DC input, so the thing should take juice from either.
