Cisco 2514 Router

Hi All,

I am new to this site so appologies if I am in the wrong place.  I have just bought a 2514 router to start my CCENT study's.  When I turn on my router and connect via console through TeraTerm I get the following text and then I cant do anything.  Can someone point me in the right direction.

Did you read those links? You need to break into ROMMON mode and install a new IOS. If it still does not work after that you might be looked at dead hardware.
