NeoWare C50 BIOS reset

I just purchased a used NeoWare c50 NeoLinux thin client.

It boots fine, but need to have changes made in the BIOS before I can use it in production. Only problem is that the BIOS is password protected. The seller is a used stock warehouse and they have no information on the system config.

Its attempting to boot using bootp, which my network doens't provide. So it won't fully boot and I can't use any of the standard Neoware software to reload the OS.

Can anyone tell me how to reset the BIOS using jumpers? I've tried every jumper on the board and removed teh battery for 10 minutes, but its still password protected.

Hello DMSerley, after you reset the bios jumper on the board and waited the 10 minutes, did you try the password as blank or DOGBITES (Must be in all Caps)?? Hope this helps.

You said ( I've tried every jumper on the board and removed the battery for 10 minutes). Did you remove the Jumper JBat1 completely and remove the cmos battery, or did you move Jumper JBat1 to the other Pin (Ex. if it is on Pin 1 & 2 move it to Pin 2 & 3) and remove the cmos battery???

But I will try removing completely.

This is not a solution but may be bad news look at the last paragraph.

Also, as a long shot and just out of curiosity did you try dogbites in all lower case. I will continue to look, and let you know what I find.

Nothing worked, so in the end I gave up on the unit and returned it.

Thanks for your help, though.
