Do you have any operating system disks or restore disks, if so re-install with the restore disks and it will be just as it would have been, what operating system are you using, probably windows xp or vista, but most likely solution is to re install the OS, or try exploring any other options given by the error dialog.

    my response was in everyway related to your problem, maybe you should try including the proper details like what operating system, what brand pc or is it custom built, how far into installation where you is it the operating system installation the failed, i do this sort of thing everyday at work, if i didn't know how to handle a situation like this properly then i'd be out of a job. Next time just RTFM and don't waste anyone else's time.

Your new moniter may not be compatible with your computer. I have an Emachines that won't take a flat screen. I have to use a big bulky moniter because it says not connected even thought the hookup fits the back of the tower. That might be your problem. Did your old moniter work correctly?

You should check the "Power Options" when the computer "Sleeps" & "Hibernates". Go to the "Control Panel" if you Win 7 or below, if you have Win 10 just type "Power" on the "Search Box" on the bottom left of the screen and then click "Edit a Power Plan" and set when the Computer "Sleeps" and when it "Hibernates". Basically when you move your mouse you are waking up the Computer from "Sleeping" or "Hibernating". Goodluck.

How do i hook up a wireless mouse to my Dell Computer.

The exact steps will depend on which brand of wireless mouse you buy, but they're all pretty much the same. There's a receiver that plugs into a USB port on the computer to pick up the signal from the mouse and the mouse itself. You need to put batteries into the mouse, while the receiver is powered by the computer. There will probably be some driver software you'll need to install so that Windows will know what to do with the new hardware, and that will be on a CD. Usually you just put the disc in and the installation starts automatically. That's about all that any wireless mouse involves.

Good luck, happy mousing, and thanks for using Fixya!

Computer will not start after hooking up mouse

Try disconnecting the mouse and start again, I suspect a driver issue but with windows Vista that should not happen. But remove the mouse boot up, and try installing the drivers for the mouse before you connect it the the computer. This is a unusual case since Vista normal would detect the drivers automatically for you. Give me more info on this problem.

No speaker hook up on new moniter

If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)

Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.
