Switching keyboard and mouse

Hi-I have a Dimension 8400 desktop and I am trying to switch the keyboard and mouse. My current mouse is a Dell 2 button with wheel. I am trying to replace it with a Dell 2 button that has a USB port at the end. My current keyboard is Model: SK-8100 and I am trying to replace it with a model: RT7D50. How do I do this? Please help. Thank you very much.

Mice and keyboard are the two most basic input devices for the modern computer. Not much is needed to change them out.

Turn your computer off. Remove the old keyboard and mouse. Connect the new keyboard and mouse into an available usb port. Restart your computer.

You may have to wait anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, depending on your computer, before the operating system recognizes the new hardware, but once it does, it will start responding.

Have a Dell Dimension. rebooted cpu and says keyboard failure hit F1 or F12. Mouse works and keyboard works in bios mode, but will not boot to XP Pro desktop. Tryed 2 sets of keyboards and mice. What do...


First, I would try booting to Safe Mode and see if that gets you to Windows. If it does, then it's a driver issue that can be relatively easily fixed by "Uninstalling" the keyboard in the Control Panel/Device Manager, then rebooting and letting the system reinstall the driver.

If that doesn't do it, then it sounds like the (assuming you're using a PS2 keyboard) PS2 keyboard plug port may be compromised (ie., damaged). Try using a USB keyboard instead and see if that solves your issue (as trying to repair a PS2 keyboard port is not practical).

Hope that's helpful.

Dell keyboard locked up


Dear Sir,

PLzz folow this step to unlock your keyboard

Step 1 Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.
  • Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.
  • Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  • Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  • Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  • Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard


  • Thanks For Your Time.

    The cursor only moves vertically on my dimension 8400


    Is this a USB or PS2 mouse? Have you tried a different mouse already. More than likely this is a bad mouse. If it has a ball in it and is not optical, try removing the ball and cleaning out the inside. If this doesn't work, replace the mouse.

    Wireless laser mouse stopped working. KB OK. Tried Everything


    Hi,
    Under the mouse near the optical lens there should be a small connect button, press that and the button on the receiver too.
    Also make sure the batteries in the mouse are new or fully charged.



    Good luck

    Mouse not responding


    Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud

    Keyboard not recognized


    I'm assuming it's a wireless keyboard?

    Have you tried "ReSyncing" the keyboard?

    1) On the base unit for the keyboard/mouse plugged into the computer press the button on it.
    2) Press the button on the bottom of your keyboard.
    3) Try to use the keyboard.

    You might have to try it a couple of times. That'll fix the problem 99% of the time. The other 1% means your keyboard is dead.
