Acorn Risc 0S3

Ok, my next door neighnour got a free computer see above> all I know is that the mouse wont work and there is no ps2 port to plug in a new one, I cant acess anything and if I press f12 a command promt 'thing' comes up under the 'taskbar'. Sorry if that is a bit vague, but unless you can tell me more, that's all I can get as I have never used a Acorn PC before. oh, I almost forgot it says 1994 on the start up screen, any idea how to get the mouse working or how to load up programs without it?

Thanks in advance.

Good Heavens this takes me back to my days as a teacher. Befor I became happy (retired.) I assume that you have examined the keyboard for the mouse socket. That is the usual location for it on the old Archimedes machines. If you still have trouble let me know and I will check out the machines at the school where I am doing supply teaching.
