Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147
My keyboard started being unresponsive at boot-up after I had to repair it using a passkey supplied by the computer after the batteries died.
Before this instance, I have been dealing with both the keyboard and mouse intermittemntly becoming unresponsive for minutes at a time before working again for a year now. It acts like a background task is pre-empting console input.
Dell suggested I update to the latest drivers for my mouse/keyboard and latest BIOS for my XPS 420... No joy.

I have had the same problem. This may sound strange, but try the following:
Switch off the notebook.
Remove the battery and keep the on off switch pressed for >5 seconds.
Replace the battery and start the computer again.
The problem should then be resolved.

You must either reconnect your mouse or just install the hardware again all together because some how either your signals are being crossed or blocked.

SOURCE: Have a Dell Dimension. rebooted
First, I would try booting to Safe Mode and see if that gets you to Windows. If it does, then it's a driver issue that can be relatively easily fixed by "Uninstalling" the keyboard in the Control Panel/Device Manager, then rebooting and letting the system reinstall the driver.
If that doesn't do it, then it sounds like the (assuming you're using a PS2 keyboard) PS2 keyboard plug port may be compromised (ie., damaged). Try using a USB keyboard instead and see if that solves your issue (as trying to repair a PS2 keyboard port is not practical).
Hope that's helpful.
