We have recently come across a Wyse Winterm v30. We were able to find a power cable for it, as it requires basically a laptop charger with less voltage, but it is the specific power cable for that model. When it is plugged in, & hooked up properly for use (power cord, vga cord, ps2 mouse & keyboard), it seems to power just fine. However, when you press the power button only one of the 4 'lights' you would expect to see come out, the mouse lights up underneath, & it beeps once. On certain occasions it will beep one more time in a minute or two (literally). After that the light will stay on but nothing appears on the working screen. I have tried power down & back up the screen & I receive a no signal message before it falls back to sleep. The system does get hot if it is 'on' for longer than 10 minutes. I'm going to assume it runs Windows CE Pro 5.0, I have no experience with the operating system. Apparently this has never happened to anyone else or no one has cared enough to attempt to fix it because a solution to this is no where to be found. 

 

Since the product was produced in November, 2006, it was made before Dell bought out Wyse. Dell technically support was unable to offer me a solution to the problem. 

 

Now I know from experience that beeps without booting can often mean internal hardware problems such as a bad motherboard, improperly seated memory or video cards, or even a bad hard drive. However, I'm very hesitant to take this model apart without knowing what I'm going into, since it is smaller than most laptops. I'm not entirely sure how to go about taking it apart properly, I only see like 6 screws. Any help with that would also be appreciated. 

 

Thanks!

No. It boots from a server or flashdrive.
