I'm trying to reset my Compaq KVM (EO1004B) using a serial connection, but I can't actually get the connection working.  It appears to connect, but only gives me a blank terminal window with a blinking cursor.

Can someone help me reset it?  I forgot my password for the Screen Saver and need to reset it.

T.I.A.

Hey, thanks for that...  I have gone there before, but it doesn't really help much.  I think my Serial Cable is working, but I can only connect and get a blank screen with a flashing cursor...

Tried that, and it doesn't connect, gives parameter error.  Also I tried using the COM port to connect to my Cisco stuff and it works fine.  Could it be the cable?  I also tried connecting from different machines and still same issue.  I'm using a straight-through Female-to-Female Serial Cable with a Male-to-Male converter...  Could this be the issue?  As I'm starting to think that this gender converter is not a straight-through converter.  I'll try pick up a straight-through "extension" cable with Female-to-Male.  Will that work maybe?

It's either bad cable ,corrupt software or bad KVM.
