Computer comes on but keyboard and mouse does not and the monitor is on but no signal



how do you know the mouse and keyboard are not working without a screen
if they are not getting any lights check the ps2 connections also the batteries if applicable

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

once you have checked these

restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer


click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x

right click you will need to update the driver


click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver rollback driver or uninstall also


I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop


then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7


in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar


hope this helps

No mice will work in my computer


make sure the battery is good ((has full charge))also you make sure the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable) or if its a lead
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty
((if applicable)) if this fails to fix the problem you could try it in safe mode

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x right click to update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the driver could be on it
hope this helps you

I had it wiped from a virus a month ago. It hasnt been working very well since, it keeps shutting down, i keep restarting it and keeps shutting down. I have just left it alone shut off for at least two...


Attempt to restart the computer to get it to start up normallly.

If this does not work then you may have to install new windows to correct the issues the virus may have caused.

Power save mode


You have to have a wired mouse mouse to fix it. Purchase a cheap one, or borrow a friends. Reboot the computer and go to the power options to make the changes.

Inspiron 530S Power Save Mode Loop


First you need to make sure that there are no other removable devices plug on the system, like usb, external hard drives, then if that will work try to go to the bios, press f2 when you see the dell logo, and go to the system setup, go to the boot device configuration and make sure that removable device is not the first boot device, if it is the first one choose hard disk and then second boot device ad cd rom/dvd rom and then disable the 3rd boot and the fourth boot device. Make sure to save the changes. And restart the system again. Once the computer is back and running try to go to support.dell.com and check the bios, download if there is a bios update for the system.

Message saying alps pointing devive has stopped working, can still move mouse pointer but cant use the scroll function


A possible fix for the Alps problem Your Alps pointer problem is probably driver related. To fix it:
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Right click on Computer & choose properties
3. Open Device Manager (Admin password may be required)
4. Under Mice & other pointing devices, right click Alps pointing-device & choose Update driver software
5. Choose Search automatically & it will download and install the latest signed driver from the windows repositories & hopefully that will fix that problem.
