Question about Dell 0Y3740 Keyboard

Need to use a Dell L100 keyboard on my old Win 98 SE computer (custom built). No USB on computer so tried an adaptor. Doesn't work at all. Do I need to download a driver? Where can I find this to download it?

Hello,
Those USB to PS2 adaptors are hit and miss. They shouldn't need a driver. What you could do is buy a USB PCI controller, which will allow you to connect USB devices to your legacy system. Best buy sells one for $20 and it works for 98 SE - Windows 7.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

Dell e310 won't start after power failure ,orange


First up, don't buy a Dell again unless you like old **** with horrible support.

On Topic

- Did you pull out the keyboard and try another USB port (if it is an USB keyboard), or try another keyboard.
- If that doesn't work try clearing the CMOS (remove power plug, power on (to empty capasitors), either remove the CMOS battery and power on, or find a jumper to reset the CMOS. (since this is a Dell a that might not exist but check the manual).

I am unable to find your computer on the Dell Support site, so it may no longer be supported. You can try searching for drivers for your macine on Google, but you best option may be to buy a PCI adapter that gives you USB 2.0 ports. The USB ports on your computer are likely USB 1.0 which will either transer data very slowly perhaps not at all with the flash drive you mentioned.

How do I get a Win 98 SE computer to talk to a USB II external disc running from a Thermaltake deck dock with a SATA disc in the dock?


to be honest you have more of a chance of hell freezing over, win 98 se although being the better out of the lot, you will never get the drivers for it, usb2 will never work with that os and it will never recognise the sata disk, you could try using win xp drivers for it, but i very much doubt you will get any response, your best bet would be to upgrade to xp...sorry its negative, but Microsoft stopped updates for 98 years ago...

Driver for v220 logitech mouse os win 98


Hi

I'm afraid the USB mouses will not work on windows 98, please use the adapter so it fits into a ps2 port. (the old mouse plug) then of course you can check the logitechs website if they offer any drivers for windows 98 but its very unlikely.

Actually I looked myself and the oldest they offer is xp.
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/428/3295&hub=1&cl=us,en

so it would be a good time to buy a new computer, yours must be around 12 years old. considering that 5 year old machine is considered old, your 12year old machine is ancient.

250 GB Western Digital external HD not detected by Win 98 SE


If you installed SE on Win 98, then here is a link to a generic USB driver that should work with your HD. If at some point you decide to install a newer OS or go dual-boot, you can always partition the HD so you don't lose any storage. Best of luck.

Is there a driver to allow sony micro vault 2.0gb on win 98?


Specs say it is compatible with Windows 98 SE. Also says no drivers are needed for it. Make sure your plug 'n play is enabled on your computer. Once it is enabled just plug the drive in & Win 98SE should install it. If it does not work then try a different usb port as maybe a port is bad. Hope this helps.

Need to backup content of Windows 98 computer via USB device


install XP next to win 98 on a separate partition, XP will automaticlly create a bootoption. If not possible, install XP over win98. documents etc will remain intact if you have enough diskspace.

If both are no option, create a backup from windows98 and than copy that one to any USB drive. Backing up from 98 takes veryvery long and so doesn copying to USB.
