Sorry for delay, can you try ctrl+alt+Shift+s

You can bypass the configuration screen to the connection manager.
You can switch to an administrative user.

Default Password for the root account is "root"

There wasn't an admin mode for this terminal (or we couldn't access it)

I ended up having to download the HP software to my laptop, create a new profile, save it to a memory stick and boot the thin client with the memory stick installed.

What an awful thin client. I have ordered another one from a different vendor.
