That means that it thinks the mouse is busted. Since you don't have
one attached, it's basically right. If you have one, you should
attach it; otherwise, you need to make a mouse loopback connector so
that it'll know you want to run headless. Unfortunately, I don't
know how to make such a connector. Does anybody know the pinouts of
the DIN-7 connector? Presumably the loopback is just TX to RX...
