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!

Dell 8200, xp. plug & play config error. can not bring up ms xp. disconnected everything except keyboard, mouse & monitor.


Plug and Play Error? Check and see what CD/DVD Device you have connected. An 8200 uses Either SATA Connectors or IDE (WIDE GRAY CABLE) to connect to the hard disk and the Optical Drives. You may also want to check the jumper settings on the CD/DVD Drives. You will see if it's been set to "Cable Select," which is AUTO for most Dell computers. Dell OptiPlex and Dimension computers can be tricky so try "Cable Select" first. If you have TWO cd/dvd Drives in the PC, you have to have one SET for "master," and the other one to NOT HAVE A JUMPER AT ALL. Dell computers just work weird that way.

Generally and indication of a software issue that is locking the system. There can be hardware causes too.

  1. Run diags on the system (From Resource CD or F12 menu) see if any failure. If you have a hardware failure then address it and see if the problem is solved.

Will This Hard Drive Work In My Dell 8200?


Yes it will work. You probably will have to use the CD that came with the drive to make sure the HD is recognized.

Switching keyboard and mouse


Mice and keyboard are the two most basic input devices for the modern computer. Not much is needed to change them out.

Turn your computer off. Remove the old keyboard and mouse. Connect the new keyboard and mouse into an available usb port. Restart your computer.

You may have to wait anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, depending on your computer, before the operating system recognizes the new hardware, but once it does, it will start responding.
