Tandy 2000

I'm also having the same problem on my 2000. I have a feeling that it's
the floppy controller chip(s) but I'm not sure yet. At first I thought
it was a bad power connector but they all check out OK. Then I replaced
the FDs with no change. I even replaced the motherboard with a spare
that I had but all that ever comes up is the "256k memory" line, and
that's all. Still, I'm only making guess' here.

I should say that I aquired my two machines, one with a hard drive, for
free but they were not tested. I had to have a video cable made before I
could see what was going on with the system, so I'm not entirely sure of
what is supposed to happen on bootup. I had the same problem with a
Tandy HX a while back, and that turned out to be a bad memory chip that
was locking up the system when it ran it's memory test. I've been
tinkering with my 2000 off and on as I get new solution ideas but so
far, I'm stuck too.
