How do I convert my computer back into a Reg Compuer from a Thin Client conversion RRS feed

  • Question

  • I confirmed my 10 year old Compaq Desktop computer is configured as Thin Client.  I confirmed this when I disabled Remote Access to my computer and my desktop Icons disappeard. I would very much like to configure it back to a independent functioning computer however I don't know how to do this or how it was even converted into a thin client.

  • Your question is strictly a hardware question and you will have to contact HP/Compaq Technical Support for more information.

    Most thin clients are not full computers and cannot be changed to a fat (full) client, but this is information you will have to acquire from HP/Compaq, not Microsoft.

    This is not a Windows XP problem.  This is a Compaq hardware problem!
