Gateway Optical Mouse w/USB not working on Dell Dimension 8400

I recently purchased a Gateway Optical for my Dell Dimention 8400. I did not pay attention that it had a USB plug in. When I plugged it into the back of the PC in the one open USB port, turn on the PC, nothing happens.

Is is possible for the two to work together or should I return it?

Thank you for your time and patience.

One of my disc drives on my Dell Dimension 8400 is stuck open. i have a Lite on Model LTN-486S that i took out of a Dell Dimension 4800 that was broken. is it compatible with mine?


Should work fine. Only issue you may run into is getting the cable settings (master / slave) set up so everything shows up. Most likely if you're replacing an existing one you can get away with just setting the new drive to cable select or what the previous drive was set to though.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful.

How do I replace low battery in dell dimention 8400


The Dell Dimension 8400 has a CR2032 battery inside the case. If your computer is saying that it is dead when you turn it on, this is a quick fix. A new CR2032 battery can be purchased from any general store (Best Buy, Walmart, Radio Shack) for about $4. Open your Computers case. There are buttons at the top and bottom that let it open like a book. You will see the battery somewhere on the main board. It looks like this. Use your finger nail or a pen to push the clip holding it in place out of the way. Replace with you new battery and close everything up.

The cursor only moves vertically on my dimension 8400


Is this a USB or PS2 mouse? Have you tried a different mouse already. More than likely this is a bad mouse. If it has a ball in it and is not optical, try removing the ball and cleaning out the inside. If this doesn't work, replace the mouse.

New keyboard and mouse set only works plugged into usb ports


You could purchase a 4 port usb hub for less than $30. Leave the keyboard & mouse where they are & use the hub for your other devices. This is probably the easiest option. Hope this helps.

USB mouse not recognized


I have similar problem. 2 inland KVM's (both have PS2 inputs, one has USB outputs) do not light or recognize my usb mouse with a PS2 adapter. They do recognize a PS2 ball mouse on the KVM's however. One of the computers (Sony vaio 1.5 GHz) does recognize a usb mouse with adapter on 2 other KVM's (Old Belkin and a Trendnet) (the second computer I have not tried in those configurations). Next I will try an optical mouse with a PS2 fitting. That did work with a fifth KVM at an auto business last week.
