If the BIOS it self is not opening means that it is not getting started,at the timing of power startup it just goes off with out showing anything the issue might be with the BIOS cell check that out otherwise there might be any issue with the BIOS than u have to consult with the vendor,


Now in second case where it is not working after the POST is done than might be the first boot sector has gone faulty you have to reinstall the OS.


ANd in if case it is giving a long beep before shutting down the issue might be with RAM check that out.

Inshort the issue might be with three things
1) BIOS cell (change the bios cell)
2) BIOS itself (consult vendor)
3) OS (Reinstall the OS)
4) RAM (Swap or change the RAM)

PLz do rate incase this info is important or giving u any benifit it helps us...


Thanx

I have a dell dimension 5150. I was attempting to upgrade drivers, and appear to have lost use of keyboard and mouse usb ports. As I cannot do anything on computer without one or other, its impossible to...


Are your devices wired or wirelss ? Have you tried another usb keyboard ? You could try booting up the machine, then switching the devices to another usb port and hope windows will reconize them. Last resort would be getting a real PS/2 keyboard at thrift store or if your really stuck, boot with a live-CD then you should have mouse and keyboard to try to copy drivers manually over to the windows folder.

Dell Dimension 3100 e10 ...usb won't work


Does the system respond to boot keys (F2, F12) when the DELL logo appears? If so the problem is with Windows drivers and probably can be resolved by reinstalling or rolling back the drivers, but how? Do you have access to another keyboard? Does the system have PS/2 ports? Do you have access to a PS/2 keyboard or adapter? If boot keys work, you could also choose F8 for Last Known Good Config (XP) or System Restore (Vista).

Have you tried different ports (front if using back or visa-versa)?
Try using just keyboard or mouse to see if one has somehow shorted. Also check the ports for any sign of damage.

1 USB Port Failure


Hi Guys

Unfortunately after looking at the computer installation details i was at fault, although i have had
the computer for well over 2 years and this is the first time it has happened.
My Dell Dimension 5150 has 7 USB ports 5 at the back and 2 in the front and it appears that i have
connected the keyboard and mouse to the wrong ports.
There are two ports at the bottom allocated for the keyboard and mouse and for some reason i had
them in the top three ports hence my problem but still not sure why it happened.
Anyway my Dell Dimension 5150 is now running OK and no further help is needed.

Many Thanks.

My wireless keyboard and mouse stopped working on my computer


Upgrade the Bios and make all the critical updates of your Hardware from the Dell site. Check also that the bluetooth is enabled through bios. Try also to make all the updates to your OS.

Keyboard


It seems that your motherboard had or say nearly to its end... but you can use USB-keyboard, that's one way to solve it, or a USB-mouse. But before doing so try to disconnect the mouse and use use computer... if it works, then it's either the mouse or keyboard will be transferred to a USB port.

Dell usb problems


the only thing i can think of is your usb support in the bios settings which can be accessed by pressing del button while the comp is starting that option should be enabled if that doesnt work i think your keyboard and mouse might need replacing i can't see all usb ports being faulty it's very unlikely jim regards
