Dear Fayereid01,

You said "I have a dell computer and when I turn it on to the desktop the arrow wont move to go any further its a desktop with a IBM keyboard"

Make sure that the mouse is plugged into the the correct port. If the mouse you are using is a USB mouse then try other USB ports. If it is another type of mouse that uses a different plug, then try all the ports on your computer that it fits into until it works. It sounds unprofessional but it should work.

If none of this works then put in the CD that should of come with you mouse and install the drivers for your mouse. If you cant find the disc for your mouse then go online to the manufacturers website and you should be able to download the drivers there.

Unlock keyboard on computer


Hello. There are several things you can try to unlock the keyboard.
- Shutdown the computer, then turn it on afterwards. Check keyboard functionality.
- If you're using a desktop, disconnect keyboard, restart computer then plug the keyboard back once the computer has boot up completely.
- If you're using a laptop, turn it off, unplug the power cord, remove the battery, re- seat the battery after a minute, plug-in the power cord then turn on the laptop.
- Disable On-Screen keyboard
- Right click "My Computer" icon on the desktop then select "Properties". Click "Device Manager". Look for the Keyboard, hit the drop down arrow beside it to display the installed keyboard. Right click on it and if you see "Enable", click on it, otherwise it's already enabled.

My Logitech keyboard MX3200 has stopped working. I changed battery no help. Pushed the connect button - no help Could I have turned it off by accident. I cannot move arround with arrows either.


Try plugging in a USB (a keyboard that connects via USB port) keyboard. If that functions properly then your wireless Logitech keyboard is defective.

Hello, i currently use a IBM desktop with IBM keyboard and mouse but i just bought a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse which i just installed into my desktop using the installation CD. They are both...


Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

Operation of computer while connected to F380 .


Hai

I understand that your Isue is "After installing the HP All-in-One software, the computer stops responding during start up when the All-in-One is connected and turned on. The computer will start correctly if the All-in-One is not connected or is turned off."

SOLUTION:

This problem can be resolved by changing the "USB Emulation" in the Computer BIOS settings.
If you are using a DELL Computer just follow my instruction below.

Caution:
If you are using a USB keyboard, do not disable “USB Emulation”, “USB Keyboard Support”, or “USB Legacy Support”. If the settings must be disabled, use a PS/2 keyboard

Change the BIOS on computers from manufacturers other than Dell If you do not have a Dell computer, contact the computer manufacturer for assistance. If the manufacturer does not know how to disable starting from USB devices, they may be able to change the order (boot order) of the disks the BIOS uses to start the computer. Move the bootable USB devices selection lower on the list than the computer hard disk drive. If you have any further queries or if the problem still persists, reply me.
