So when I say I'm new to raspberry pi, I've got nowhere...
I've taken my raspberry pi model B+ v1.2 out of the box plugged mouse, keyboard, hdmi (monitor) and sd card in. No Ethernet.
I've plugged in the power and all there is, is a black/blank screen. 2 lights on the board but nothing has happened??
I have no instructions or knowledge about these, so I expected the sd card to boot when I turned it on. What have I done wrong? Or is there something wrong the pi board/ sd card. I have purchased?
Edit: my screen says no signal detected and the keyboard appears to have no lights suggesting power.
Could this be the problem?
F.A.Q.s Hey I just got a Raspberry Pi Model B+ and the USB/Ethernet doesn't work! Your kernel/firmware (operating system) has to be updated to support the new USB/Ethernet controller chip! The annoying thing is that to upgrade you kinda need network connectivity which you can't get if USB/Ethernet is down. If you have a spare Model B around, try running sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade To update to the latest kernel!
