a client of mine has 3 thin clients that have software on them that is no longer needed and would like to just use them to connect to the internet. Is there a way to reset them to factory settings? i just need them to connect to a browser.

thanks

You can obtain the image from HP.com just like you would a driver. The utility you download creates a bootable USB key that will flash the unit and restore the embedded OS to factory settings.

Well it would, but what do you mean by "basic access to the internet"? it would load the OS as normal and have IE ready to go... Are you wanting to add restrictions or enable kiosk mode?

You would want to download the "Operating System":

Be aware that the HP site is showing a download for HP ThinPro (Linux based Operating System) for that model.  If your thin client is currently running Windows / Windows Embedded you may consider contacting HP as to how to obtain the files required for re-imaging.
