Wont connect up to my computer and other mouses work in the usb slot so its my mouse and when i wiggle the usb it sometimes will connect and work.


Throw the mouse in the trash and replace it with a new USB laser mouse. They are cheap, not worth fixing.
If you are dead set on fixing it, you'll need a new USB plug. You can clip it off a broken something, or you can purchase the plug itself. Match up the wires and you're golden. I would just replace it myself. Good luck.

MY DELL E520 FREEZES AFTER START UP


Is this a recent occurance? Try a System restore. Have you done ANY Driver updates? Any updates at all? Added any hardware? When you boot to safe mode it only loads minimal drivers.

Use wired mouse and keyboard (not wireless) and change the USB port you are using to another one.

Connect them directly to the computer, do not use USB hubs.

If no joy reboot in safe mode: turn on your computer and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the Advanced Boot screen. Select "SAFE MODE" and press ENTER. After that, restart in normal mode.

Thank you

Hi, first my acerone is plugged to energy, use a usb keyboard and an usb mouse, then I unplug the acerone from energy, disconnect the key board and the mouse, but if I reconnect for example the usb mouse...


'Hot-plugging' accessories doesn't work well all the time but you might try reinstalling the USB driver; it may be slightly ill. Windows like to keep us on our toes by trashing drivers now and then.

Mouse works fine but cant get keyboard to sync


Might be a defective keyboard. Check and make sure its compatible for windows vista but all keyboards should work with any system.. As well maybe the port on the computer is bad..

Unable to start in Safe Mode with Command Prompt in XP Media Center 2005


Hi there. My name is Alex and I am here to help solve this problem

Depending if the BIOS has legacy USB support for keyboard and mouse enabled, you should be able to run safe mode by pressing F8 before the computer boots into windows. I would not recommend going into the BIOS if you do not have much knowledge to the computer as one wrong configuration could cause some behaviour problems or even damage to the pc's components

I recommend connecting a keyboard and mouse that have cable and the PS/2 connectors (purple and green) which can be found at back of the computer at the top. Then restart your computer, hold down F8 and you will be able to run safe mode. The mouse and keyboard will then work

Keep both the keyboard and mouse plugged in and boot windows. When you get into windows, plug in the USB keyboard and mouse into a USB slot and wait whilst it detects it. After a couple of minutes you should be able to use your USB mouse and keyboard and take out the PS/2 keyboard and mouse

I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
