I am using an FEC POS touch screen terminal, OS- Win XP.  There is a customer display unit, (CDU), (Page 2 in manual attached), as part of the terminal which lights up and shows Welcome POS System, (pic attached).  I need to be able to change it.  It appears as soon as the terminal is powered on, so I assumed it is in the BIOS.  
I've looked everywhere in the BIOS, but can't seem to find any link to the CDU
Been in touch with FEC who say they don't think it can be changed.
Surely if it is in the BIOS then it should be able to be changed.
I initially thought it may be attached to one of the com ports.

It could be in the control circuit for that particular display and may be hard coded into it... You would almost have to open the unit and find out what vendor makes that small display port. I bet it is made by an outside supplier and they would know if it can be changed or not...

Don't void your warranty over it...

It should be programmable somehow since I have seen some terminals that display non generic greetings...

But if the manufacturer doesn't know, it might be hard...

Did you search the entire drive for a config file with that wording?

Tried to find any clue on display re manufacturer. No luck.

Checked every config file I could find, but was advised that as it lit up immediately power was on it must be hard coded, so given.

Thanks for your help
