The issue is related with the keyboard drive. Please download the Keyboard driver and install properly.

Could be the USB port is not working. Try a different port. If the mouse works, you can use it to get logged on.
Finally, keyboards are cheap. Borrow one from a friend and if it works just buy another.

Hi - our dell dimension c521 is stuck in power save mode. The light on the monitor is solid orange and will not respond to the keyboard or mouse


A solid amber light indicates a pre-POST failure has occurred. The system has received a Power Good signal from the power supply so it's not a power supply issue. HERE is the documentation that tells what the lights mean and possible solutions.

There must be a PS2 connector for a keyboard. Use this and enter in the bios and change the error reporting at keyboard missing to none.

Usb issue


Do you have a ps/2 keyboard/mouse? Or a usb->ps/2 adapter. I'd say boot up normally and log in with the ps/2 keyboard/mouse. Then, from device manager, right click everything under USB and such and uninstall. Then right-click your computer name in the device tree and scan for changes.

Sounds like a problem with the video card. Cross check the connections to the CPU. If its all fine, Then Connect the monitor to a diffrenet pc and then use the monitors keys to change it to a plug and play mode.This might help with ur problem

I have a dell dimension PC and when I connect a non Dell Keyboard the PC will recognise any of (F) function keys I have tried a number of keyboards tat I know work on other PCs, reporting keyboard errors...


Try booting to Safe Mode and see if the problem still exists. Press F8 when you're on the Dell Screen and choose Safe Mode. If the problem does not happen in Safe Mode, then do this:

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type msconfig
4. Choose Diagnostic Startup
5. Restart to Normal Mode.
