Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
Yesterday all was ok, but today when i started up i was unable to input my windows password as the keyboard would not work. the usb port was not working for the keyboard so i changed the port to another and hence it is working, i then put a 4 port hub in the same failed port and it works.
Also the mouse will not work in the same failed port as the keyboard.
So how is it that a 4 port hub will work in the failed port and not the mouse
or keyboard all very strange to me not had this problem before.
And also done System Restore point to last week but still the same.
Anyone got any answers for me as i see others have this problem
Dell want to charge £25 for trouble shooting.
Unfortunately after looking at the computer installation details i was at fault, although i have had
the computer for well over 2 years and this is the first time it has happened.
My Dell Dimension 5150 has 7 USB ports 5 at the back and 2 in the front and it appears that i have
connected the keyboard and mouse to the wrong ports.
There are two ports at the bottom allocated for the keyboard and mouse and for some reason i had
them in the top three ports hence my problem but still not sure why it happened.
Anyway my Dell Dimension 5150 is now running OK and no further help is needed.
