Reloading XP on dc 5100 hp compaq

After fully loading XP the computer will recognize very few mice. A simple 2 button mouse from Walmart works, but any other, including the oem 1 that came with it are useless. Is there a cmos setting that is needed or a different mouse driver? Jim

Re: reloading XP on dc 5100 hp compaq

Mice don't normally need a driver unless you wish to assign special buttons and clicks, assuming your mouse is a PS2 connection, try a USB one instead, that should work.

HP DC 7100 on XP Professional finds USB Mouse ok but will not find USb Keyboard, tried pulling drivers down still does not work

Hello here is the homepage:

What keyboard are you useing ???

You maybe just need to install the driver or software for the keyboard.
Try to visit the manufactures site of the keyboard in search for software.
The driver is sometimes available at windows update.
Are there any faults in the device manager ???

Good luck

I think you really need to boot from a boot disk (windows xp - vista - 7) for your operating system - and attempt a repair from there. Your computers have different motherboards and parts.. windows installed drivers for them are not close enough.

I have had success in xp by doing this: before removing drive from old computer - you go into device manager and remove everything - drives, video card, mother board last and leave keyboard and mouse .. so you can shut it down .. then install into new machine and it finds most everything and then you install your drivers there.

Good luck,

In do not know the biao password of my HP 5100 ssf

Since it's a desktop computer, there is a small 'jumper' on the motherboard that can be accessed.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power cable.
Remove the side-panel.
Look for 3 gold pins in a row, labelled 'BIOS reset' or just 'reset'.
Move the jumper from the 1-2 position to the 2-3 position.
Wait a few seconds.
Move the jumper back to the 1-2 position.
Replace the side-panel.
Reconnect the AC power.
Restart, and enter BIOS SETUP.

Hi sdd555,

Restart the computer after plugging the USB keyboard into a different USB port, or remove the keyboard in Device Manager and then refresh the system to work around the issue. This will cause the device to be re-enumerated and the driver will be reloaded.

Good Luck,

I've used the 62150 black combo (not 62150N Deluxe silver) on XP Pro for years with no problem. Manual said to sync, press ID button on receiver and LED will blink fast, then slower. While blinking, press ID button on keyboard and mouse (need pen or something to press mouse button). If receiver LED blinks whenever you move mouse or hit keyboard, it is receiving. If OS doesn't recognize, may be connectors. I had 2 separate PS2 ports and had to use an USB adapter for the keyboard cable.
