SOURCE: Dell optical wireless mouse locking

If your mouse is "locking" the two most likely causes are either due to a battery issue or a connection issue. The first is unlikely since you're saying it started just after you replaced the battery, but you might want to try again if you have other new batteries around that you can use. Also you could try Re-Pairing (if you have the bluetooth wireless keyboard/mouse combo that dell offers) the keyboard and mouse after reboot. step by step Instructions for re-pairing or fixing a corrupted are should be available on the Dell support website and vary depending on the exact model you have.

Perform the steps given below to increase you system performance.

Uninstall all unwanted software.

Erase unnecessary files in the windows temporary folder.
Double Click My Computer.
Double Click the drive where windows are installed. This is typically drive C.
Double Click the windows folder. This is typically C:\Windows.
Double Click the temp folder. This is typically C:\Windows\temp.
Press control A to select all files and folders.
Press the delete key.
If confirmation is asked to delete these files choose yes to all.

Close all applications.
Disable your screen saver.
Disable all the programs on the taskbar if possible.
Click Start.
Click Program.
Click Accessories.
Click System Tools.
Click Defrag.
Select the drive to defrag. You should defrag every hard disk on your system. This process can take quite some time.
Click Ok.
Enable your screen saver.


Remove Startup programs (if you know what you are doing)
Click Start
Select Run
Type msconfig in the text box
The "System Configuration Utility" window will open

A list of programs will be shown each having a checkbox to the left of the name.
Click on the checkbox to enable the program (so it runs when windows boots) and click a second time to Uncheck the box to disable the program (so it does not run when windows boots).


Set the size of the virtual memory (swap file) to a constant optimal size.
Right click My Computer
Click Properties
The System Properties window lists the amount of RAM in your PC
Click Performance
Click Virtual Memory
Click Let me specify my own virtual memory settings
Click the arrow next to the hard disk.
Here are some guidelines to choose the best location for your virtual memory file
a) Select the quickest hard disk.
b) If you have, two hard disks that are similar in performance select the hard disk that does not contain Windows system files (usually C:).
c) Make sure the drive has free space equal to at least twice the size of the recommended swap file size.
d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
Click OK.
After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
Click Yes.
You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes

SOURCE: After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working

Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

SOURCE: computer freezes after about 30 minutes

hi, what happened that made it start behaving this way? check that the bios settings are correct, also after post hold down the f5 key-this will give you the option to get in safe mode, from there you can troubleshoot much better. try and remember what caused the problem. you can try a system restore.there are many reasons why the condition of lock up will happen, sounds like a power management issue, or overheat, or just a software issue. does it lock up while it is in use or just sitting with the screen saver? also check and see if it runs hot. if you need further assistance reply. good luck!

SOURCE: Keys qweruiop not working on startup

Take the computer to a qualified technician, who can replace the keyboard, as the least-expensive "try" at trouble-shooting.

Since a keyboard transmits "codes" to the motherboard,
e.g., left-shift-has-been-pressed, and left-shift-has-been-released,
and the motherboard interprets those codes, it is NOT likely that
the motherboard is misinterpreting the codes, especially given that
the "bad' letters are in a straight line on your keyboard.

Find an external USB keyboard, and plug it in.
If it works correctly in the first 15 minutes, then the problem is NOT the motherboard.

My cordless mouse will not go off when I shutdown my computer, I always have to remove the bat- teries.


Your PC shutting down has no control over the mouse but it will shut down on its own after a few minutes of no activity. This is normal.

The mouse keeps becoming unresponsive and turning off at random


What type of mouse is it? Wireless or wired USB mouse?

If it's wireless, replace the battery with new one or you may try connecting the USB wireless adapter (that came with the mouse) into another USB ports of the computer.

If it's a wired mouse, try connecting it into another USB ports of the computer. Or you may use it with another computer just to isolate the problem. If you would get the same problem even after connecting it into another computer, then I could say that the mouse needs repair.

Hope this helps!
