I have a WYSE dumb terminal my uncle brought to me. It has Windows XP embedded and 256mb ram. I do not know much about dumb terminals. When I go into the BIOS I am prompted for the password. Here is what I did so far:

1. Remove jumper
2. Place jumper elsewhere
3. Remove CMOS battery.

When I moved the jumper over, the D.T wouldn't power up. However, when I placed it in it's original location it did power up with no problem. Anyway to clear the password?? It does say "CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR: DEFAULT LOADED". I'd also like to know what else can be done to dumb terminals? What else can I use this for other than it's intended purpose? Thanx

ACTUALLY, IT MIGHT NOT BE A DUMB TERMINAL. HERE IS A PICTURE OF WHAT IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE

A dumb terminal keeps no information on it. They are used with a server where all information is kept. Theres really is not much use for a terminal in a home enviroment.
