The resolution for this is to go into the BIOS with the help of F2. Then look for the option USB Legacy devices. If it is enabled disable it or vice-a-versa. Also look for Boot from USB devices. Please disable that option. And select the first boot device to be the HDD (Internal hard drive)

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

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.

Reset my dell computer


Do a system restore with the system and driver cd's that came with the computer. It will delete everything that is on the drive and restore it like new. If you added any new cards ( graphic ) or any different hardware that the pc came with, remove first, then boot from cd to reinstall windows and drivers. Then reinstall any hardware that might have been added. Also, disconnect any USB plug like printer or scanner. Just have mouse,keyboard, monitor attached.
