My Dell Precision 360 PC does not recognize HDDs.


Hello,
Sorry to hear you are having problems with your Dell Precision 360. If you are still having problems let me know.
Please describe what happened, what symptoms, you experienced prior to the system "dying". Also, what happens when you power on the pc now? Does it ask you to press F1/F2 keys to continue or does it give you options- for example something like startup repair, start in safe mode, etc. ?
Have you tried shutting system down and unplugging power from pc for two minutes then plugging back in and powering on?
Have you tried booting from a different hdd?
If you have tried anything please let me know what you tried and the result.
Good luck.

Won't read keyboard


usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

Wont start can see picture tho


One or more drivers may be currupt.
Try booting in safe mode and see if it completes booting, if so go to device manager and look if there is a yellow asstrick or red question mark at any device, if so the driver needs to be reinstalled and the device needs to be enabled.
Shut down and try botting normally, if you still are unable to boot normally, disconnect all usb devices connected to the computer, with the exception of the keyboard and mouse, and see if it boots up normally.
I hope this helps.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.

Disconnect the power from the wall outlet for about a minute, also disconnect the NIC cable as well if one is connected. Plug back in and see if the computer boots normally. If this doesn't work disconnect all USB devices that are connected, leave only the keyboard, mouse, video and power connected, if the PC boots, connect the rest of your USB devices one at a time and see if you get any errors. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a nice day.

Can't boot from CD. When I attempt to boot from the CD I get the screen that says "Boot from CD" and the flashing cursor unfortunatly my mouse and keyboard are not enabled so I can't tell it to...


Keyboards and mice that use the USB interface will require drivers to operate and therefore not work before Windows has loaded. If you can, run the CD from the "My Computer" window, but it sounds like you are having problems, so you should go somewhere with cheap or old electronics (frys electronics, Charity store) and get a keyboard or mouse with a P2 connector , which is recognizable as a round green or purple (sometimes not colored) connector with (I believe) 9 pins on it. Hopefully your computer has the connections for these on the back (likely above other connectors), these will work before the computer has loaded Windows. Hope this helps.

When I boot up my pc Iget a black screen with the message keyboard failure. f8 will not work to get me to safe mode


You didn't specify if this was a USB keyboard or not. Power everything down and unplug the power cords.

Check that the keyboard is properly plugged in. If it IS a USB keyboard you can try a different USB port. Plug in and power up.

If that doesn't work try a different keyboard. You might need a new one.

USB ports all seem troublesome


You cannot use wireless keyboard or USB keyboard in setting up the computer BIOS, what you need is a PS2 keyboard, if your motherboard supported USB booting, in Boot section of your BIOS change the Boot Priority to USB Generic Device, after you change the boot priority change the First Boot to Removable Device or USB Generic Device.. and after that save your configuration and restart the computer.. you must put the USB stick first before you configure the BIOS..

Keyboard Error


Sounds like intermittent keyboard failure. If it is the old style keyboard connector (small round jack), shut down, remove it completely, and then plug it back in. If it is a USB keyboard, you are probably having USB keyboard support problems. Try moving the keyboard to a different USB port - usually the ones closest to the parallel port or network jack that are sure to be on the motherboard itself.

Hope this helps...
