Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
Dell dimension 8200 keyboard compatibility- computerwon't recognize new hardware(keyboard) second keyboard tried after original failed. usb connection.
From what I understand you have a compatibility issue with your new keyboard.
Here is what you can do, because it's probably a driver issue.
Youcan check if you are missing drivers by going to Start>(RightClick)My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. If yousee any drivers that are yellow or with a ! those are the drivers youneed to find, download and install.
Windows Updates ~ When you go to Windows Update, do not "Express"update, rather "Custom" - Once it has loaded the screen, on the lefthand side you will see hardware. Download the hardware drivers there.They work 98% of the time, and Windows Update is pretty good now daysso it might fix your problem easy.
I don't understand the question entirely however.
Does your original keyboard work?
Is the new keyboard the only one not being reconizied?
Try differen USB ports, see if it makes a difference. Also, turn off the PC, and then plug it in. Sometimes the PC has to be restarted/turned off, before you change hardlike like keyboard and mouse or other accessories.
Hope I've been of some assistance!
