External mice are usually plug and play. Plug it in restart your comp. this first time and on bottom right of the task bar (by your clock) you should see "new device detected"/"installing new hardware for your device"/ device is ready to use.
I'm assuming by "external mouse" you mean a usb not wireless right?

I lost my installation cd please help what can i do to get my external drive to work


A bit more info would be helpful. Tell us, please, exactly what laptop you have (make and model) and what operating system (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, etc. Exactly what external hard drive do you have? How does the external hard drive connect to the laptop (USB? Firewire? UTP (RJ-41)? eSATA?)

There are just not any a, b, c answers to questions as general as "how do I install my external hard drive to my laptop?) It is very likely you will NOT have to have an installation CD. The purpose of the installation CD is to keep you from having to answer all the questions I just asked. So, tell me in considerable detail what you have and I'll do my best to help. (I'm sure others will offer help also.)

Built in mouse has not worked properly from day 1. Now my external mouse won't work either. I tried a different external moue, but it doesn't work either.


Unplug everything except the power cord, including the following:

Speakers
Printers
Scanners
USB devices
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
USB flash drive or other external storage devices
External Monitor
External Keyboard
External Mouse
If your computer is attached to a docking station, undock it.



Make sure the touchpad or your finger has no dirt, grease, liquids or food on it (the touchpad has to make a good contact with your finger to work correctly).


Turn the computer back on and retest the touchpad.

When the touchpad still does not work correctly proceed to step 5.

When the touchpad does work correctly, attach one external device at a time and test the touchpad to see which one may have caused the issue.



Make sure the latest driver for the touchpad is installed (you may need to use a external USB or Bluetooth mouse), for more information refer to:

How to install windows xp on a totally brand new hp mini laptop


Hi, you have to have an external drive / USB since HP minies does not have CD Drive, if u already have the cd installer of the XP operating system, just connect the USB / external drive to the computer then insert the cd installer, then follow the prompt on the screen on how to install the system, should be licensed installer with product key. If you have saved the installer in a flash drive, just insert the flash drive and install, no need for cd.

Thank you.

Unable to type on keyboard. The mouse works fine but I can not type any text. unsure how this happened??? currently using a different computer for help.


"I'mlooking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper versionof Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to"drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag",(serialnumber) of the laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer'scomputer they sell.


To boot from a CD disk, power on your computer and tap the key to bringyou to the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD into the top CD/DVD drive andthen select "Boot from CD/DVD" and hit key. Select the "Runthe 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics.

If all tests pass then reload OS ( Operating Software ).

Installing windows xp


You will have to purchase an external dvd rom drive. Then select the external to boot from in system bios. You can copy win cd to usb stick and install from that but it is a little tricky. Good Luck.

Copyright 2007 by Morris Rosenthal -All Rights Reserved contact info How to replace a Notebook Keyboard and Mouse with USB Adapter When your laptop keyboard fails, you can usually buy a replacement for somewhere between $60 and $120, but putting it in is a real bear, and given the current prcies laptops have fallen to, it's tough to justify as well. When you own the same notebook computer for as long as I have, the pointing device, be it a pad or an intellipoint thingy, is going to fail. Laptop keyboard life is also somewhat limited compared to regular keyboards, hair winding around the works is a big problem, but I'd hate to encorage folks with limited mechanical skills to go prying off their keys because it takes some skill to get them back on. So, most notebooks have a PS/2 port to allow for an external mouse or keyboard, but few have both. You can try a PS/2 splitter if you can find one, but the more elegant solution is a USB to PS/2 adaper, shown at right. usb1.jpg USB Keyboard and Mouse Adapter
usb2.jpg Computer End of USB Cable
The USB to PS/2 adapter comes equipped with a standard USB input, the rectangular shaped connector (left). The other end sports two PS/2 ports, green and purple, green is for mouse, purple is for keyboard. You don't have to use them both at the same time, but for a notebook with a failing keyboard and pointer (Ahem) it's a good solution. Windows has had native support for USB mice and keyboards at least as far back as Windows 98, I wouldn't bet on '95 as all the USB support was sketchy. The point is, as long as you're using WIndows 98 or later, you don't need any special software with the USB to PS/2 adapter. So, what's the big deal about installing a USB adapter that I did a whole page about it? Try it when the laptop CD drive has failed:-) The CD drive on my notebook went south over a year ago and I never got around to replacing it because I figured with a failing keyboard and mouse, I should be looking for a new notebook. The solution is to actually install the USB to PS/2 adapter on another PC with the same version of Windows. Then, install it on the notebook, and every time Windows looks for a driver on the CD that doesn't work, point it to the A: drive instead, go to the other PC and copy the reqired file onto a floppy, and do sneaker net. It may have taken 20 minutes, but it's a once in a lifetime job, so it was worth it.

Don't replace anything without troubleshooting first! Thinking about doing this for a living?
In case you're wondering, if you want to install real software, as in programs that won't fit on a floppy, onto a notebook with a dead CD drive, you can buy an external USB CD for much cheaper than a replacment drive for the notebook. Installing the software from the USB CD can be just as much fun as above, unless they provide the drive on a floppy, you'll have to install the software on another PC with the same OS first and then bring the required files over one at a time as Windows asks for them. You can use a Jump Drive instead of a floppy, though it's the same amount of work. BTW, I know I use laptop and notebook unterchangably, it's habitual, not intentional:-)

Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote.Thank You.
