This is definitely the problem with driver chris... Because the keyboard drivers are present in the database of windows, so watever keyboard you connect with the computer, it will work for sure... the only thing is the special function keys like volume keys, shortcut keys, music player keys will not work, because these drivers will not be present in the drivers database of windows...As you said its a wireless key board you must have supplied with a driver cd... try uninstalling and install again...Hope it works...

try shutting down, remove power cable, remove memory chips, remove battery on motherboard(coin battery). remove grpahics card from slot(if its the kind you can remove). Now wait 10-15 sec then put in the graphics card, the batter, the memory sticks and close the case plug in the power cable and see if this works!

Dimension 8400 locks up. Keyboard won't respond.


Generally and indication of a software issue that is locking the system. There can be hardware causes too.

  1. Run diags on the system (From Resource CD or F12 menu) see if any failure. If you have a hardware failure then address it and see if the problem is solved.
  2. Update bios and drivers from support.dell.com
  3. Edit MSCONFIG, startup group, remove entries that are not required (Generally only AV and printer scanner items are needed here, most other items will function without and item here)
  4. Edit the Virtual Memory settings, and set it to Custom and an amount double the RAM (EG: 4 GB RAM set initial and Mas to 8200 MB VRAM)

What is max size HDD for a Dimension 8400


As far as I know, there is no known maximum size. If you are making it a slave drive, you need to go into your system's BIOS and tell the computer you have a new HDD.

Restart your PC, and you will either need to hit your F2 key or Delete key repeatedly on boot. Just watch the top right corner of your monitor to know which button to hit.

Once you're in BIOS, just move to the hardware section or hard drive section and make the necessary changes.

Reboot and enjoy!

Dell wireless keyboard - one button controls at top not working


Hi,
You will probably need to set up those keys. If you have an installation disc that came with the keyboard try to install the software.
If you don't try going to control panel and then go to keyboards to see whether you can modify the keyboard settings.

My dell dimension 8400 has no volume I tried new speakers and the volume is not muted how do i get it to work


Click on the speaker icon in the lower right side of the screen, and set the volume control to high. If no help, do you have amplified speakers? Line or headphone outputs are too low to drive speakers directly.
