Interfacing with your Pi

Most Raspberry Pis have an HDMI or MiniHDMI port on them that you can plug into a monitor or a TV. Almost any USB keyboard will function with the Raspberry Pi as long as they do not drain too much power. Insert your SD card into the slot, then plug the monitor and keyboard in. Be sure the monitor is turned on before you plug in the USB cable to the Raspberry Pi so it can accept handshaking. After a few moments, you should be presented with a login screen.
