Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC
Hi, My system is a Dell Dimension E520. OS is Windows XP Media Center 2005. After installing a windows update, I received the dreaded blue screen error 0x7000000E. I contacted Dell by phone and after 8 hours on the phone with tech. support, this issue appears resolved (Memory tests passed). Although I have my computer back and can see all items on the desktop, the keyboard and mouse are not working. Messages pop-up on my screen indicating New Hardware Found and the system asks for the installation disc, but I am unable to proceed with installation without a recognizable keyboard or mouse. I have tried several different keyboards and mice without success (including a brand new Microsoft wireless set with installation disc). I re-started in Safe Mode and ran a complete Systems Test (including keyboard and mouse test of course) and All Tests Passed. However, now when I try to re-start in Safe Mode, the system goes directly to a Windows screen asking me to click on my username, which is impossible as the system will not respond to the keyboard or mouse. Any ideas? Thanks.
Hi there. My name is Alex and I am here to help solve this problem
Depending if the BIOS has legacy USB support for keyboard and mouse enabled, you should be able to run safe mode by pressing F8 before the computer boots into windows. I would not recommend going into the BIOS if you do not have much knowledge to the computer as one wrong configuration could cause some behaviour problems or even damage to the pc's components
I recommend connecting a keyboard and mouse that have cable and the PS/2 connectors (purple and green) which can be found at back of the computer at the top. Then restart your computer, hold down F8 and you will be able to run safe mode. The mouse and keyboard will then work
Keep both the keyboard and mouse plugged in and boot windows. When you get into windows, plug in the USB keyboard and mouse into a USB slot and wait whilst it detects it. After a couple of minutes you should be able to use your USB mouse and keyboard and take out the PS/2 keyboard and mouse
I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
