How do i restore my dell e520 back to factory settings I no longer have the boot cd and it's an xp pc. Please help - I can no longer use the mouse or keyboard when windows buts up but I can get onto tho...


xp is kind of not supported as much anymore by Microsoft.

Vista will soon be this way as well.

If you lost the installation cd then you are out of luck.

Try getting windows 7 full version and installing it on the machine, if it's worth the money to you to try to revamp this computer.

Dell C521 Will boot to User login But cannot use mouse or keyboar


If it is a USB then it should work with any keyboard and mouse. When you say it shuts off after XP loading screen, does the machine power off? have you tried unplugging the mouse and keybaord and let Windows load?

Dell Dimension 3100 e10 ...usb won't work


Does the system respond to boot keys (F2, F12) when the DELL logo appears? If so the problem is with Windows drivers and probably can be resolved by reinstalling or rolling back the drivers, but how? Do you have access to another keyboard? Does the system have PS/2 ports? Do you have access to a PS/2 keyboard or adapter? If boot keys work, you could also choose F8 for Last Known Good Config (XP) or System Restore (Vista).

Have you tried different ports (front if using back or visa-versa)?
Try using just keyboard or mouse to see if one has somehow shorted. Also check the ports for any sign of damage.

Newer monitor to older xp pc


If your monitors are displaying "no signal" they aren't receiving input from the video card. If your PC has two video outputs (onboard) try charging to the other output to see if it will come on. Also reseat your video card in its slot. Also, what can you see that lets you know the keyboard and mouse are not working?

I am trying to move my Bookkeeper program to a new Vista Computer. I am getting a message that I am trying to run an older version of Bookkeeper with newer pogram. My old computer is XP and the new one...


Most programs written for Windows XP also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If an older program doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard to simulate the behavior of earlier versions of Windows.
• Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
NoteTo find out if your programs (or programs you plan to buy) are compatible with Windows Vista, go online to the Windows Vista Compatibility Center. This website contains a comprehensive list of programs, computers, and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.
