    After a two-week interruption of power to the PC, I attempted a startup with an optic mouse (not the Dell ball type) and I am having the same problem - the keyboard and mouse work for a few seconds during startup and then they quit. Non of the seven USB ports seem to work at all. I have tried the keyboard and the original mouse with no luck!

    I have the same problem, none of the USB ports seem to work, I've tried a kb and mouse in bottom two slots as directed by Dell, and tried them in all the other USB slots. The keyboard doesn't light at all, the optical mouse briefly lights when it's half connected. I have tried two different keyboard that both work in another pc and a laptop.
    I cannot access the bios to set the boot order to upgrade the bios as there are no ps2 slots and the usb's are faulty :-( new mainboard time I think.

    I have a Dell Dimension 5150. All worked fine then one day there was a UBS error of some sort and now, none of the USB ports work. I have plugged in two different sets of USB K & M. To no avail. It's like it's not getting enough power.

The only thing i can think of is your usb support in the bios settings which can be accessed by pressing del button while the comp is starting that option should be enabled if that doesnt work i think your keyboard and mouse might need replacing i can't see all usb ports being faulty it's very unlikely jim regards

New ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to


You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

Want to buy more RAM..


Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::
