    Ok here is my issue…. i got 20 new wyse terminals and i already had a master image that i was going to use on all 20 of them. i went through all of the terms and gave me no problem except for one.

    This term in particular will not boot up. it will power up and make random assortment of beeps depending on what i have plugged into the terminal.

    So my question is
    1. what happened?
    2. is there anyway to get back to the BIOS so i can redo the image push?

    Thanks.

    So, it worked before you tried to image it?
    Can you enter the BIOS by hitting DEL while the Wyse boot splash screen is visible? (BIOS password is Fireport)

    The image worked fine but as soon as i hit the desktop and plugged in my mouse the terminal locked up. so i rebooted and i no longer get the splash screen and could not enter the bios.

    Note: i also can not reset to factory settings by holding or tapping the “G” key on a USB, analog, or wyse keyboard that came with the unit.

    G-key is not working for XPe. Only Linux, WTOS and CE have that feature.

    So you cannot enter the BIOS, correct?

    Yes you are correct….
    all i get when i hit the power or plug the a/c adaptor in is a sequence of beeps depending on what i have plugged into the unit and then thats it. the power light stays orange and do display on the monitor.

    Edit: “No display on the monitor”

    Cant anyone get a fix for this or help me atleast figure out what is going on? cause i really do not want to return the item i would rather just try and fix it on my own. cause waiting to get a new one will take a long time.

    There is only one test you can do before returing the unit.
    – Open the broken C90
    – Locate the BIOS chip (should be under the flash module). It is socketed and appr. 1cmx1cm in size.
    – Remove this carefully
    – do the same on a working unit
    – plug in the working BIOS in the broken unit

    If the broken unit is now booting we have a good chance of fixing the issue.
