Cannot open anything on my Dell

When I click on an icon or the start button, nothing happens. It doesn't matter if I right click or left click or double click. I have restarted a few times. Still not able to open anything.

Sounds like a virus has locked you out. Start the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 on boot. Then load anti virus software and clean your system

    My Dell XPS 420 appears to boot up fine. The mouse moves OK, all my icons appear on my desktop as usual. When I try to click on anything nothing happens. When I try to use the keyboard buttons, eg....

    Just a thought: Unplug the KB and mouse, wait a few seconds, then reinsert them. That's with the computer running. They are USB mouse and KB, right?

    Hi there, I have a Dell All-in-one printer photo 964 and have never had any problems with it until yesterday. It keeps saying there is a paper jam and there is no paper stuck in it and I can't do anything...

    1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.

    2. Right-click the printer you want to use, and then click Set as Default Printer. A check mark is displayed on the printer icon to mark it as your default printer.

    Ok i have the dell dimension 5100 and i have no sound nor mic drivers i tried reinstalling them but still nothing please help

    Open the Control panel 2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. 3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document. 4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel. 5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
    Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application > Services. Choose "Windows Audio" and set to Automatic and Start. Now next you can do is If you open control panel & click device manager the window that opens will show a list of all installed hardware. Look for anything with an exclamation mark beside it, or to do with sound. If you see anything, right click it, check it isn't Disabled then select "Properties." The next window should have some tabs along the top, the one you are looking for is "Driver," you should now see an "Update driver" button. Check ur sound card information by doing this Click on start menu Click on Run Type dxdiag, enter Click on the sound tab There is button of test direct sound click on this check if there is sound Check ur registry. Check if the sound registry key is enabled or disabled. There could be an error in registry, run registry cleaner reg in out to scan for errors. download real tech ac 97 driver

    Connecting to internet

    The “Network adapters “is located in the”Device Manager” menu. If you clicked on” Device Manager” and nothing happens lets try to get to it another way. Go to “My Computer” which is usually located in the “Start” button, (lower left corner of desktop) and RIGHT click on “My Computer”. Another smaller window should open. Select “Properties” and another window will open. Select the “Hardware” tab at top select the “Device Manager” button.

    If you have any other questions please contact me.
