Trying to use FMC on MD83

I have attempted several flights with the Honeywell system but cannot get it to react when I engage autopilot with it in "ACTIVATE" mode. It goes into a stall straight away and and by the time I get that under control I have missed my first waypoint. From there on in I get no input from the FMC unless I switch on GPS which rather seems to negate its purpose.

Thanks for that RadarMan. I am comfortable with setting up a flight on this FMC but am somewhat confused by the "Bendix King" user manual. on Page 3 - last paragraph on right side - it suggests that turning Vnav off will result in the autopilot retaining the program and continue on course without Vnav. For me, one of the main attractions is a controlled ascent, particularly the speed under 10000 feet.......Roger

I know that this is very long but you can pick out what you need.
The information he gives is spot-on!
