Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a new Dell Inspiron 530s and upgraded to the S510 silver wireless mouse and keyboard. I have been unable to set the system up because I can't get the mouse to work. I called Dell and they told me that I must first use a wired mouse and keyboard to set the system up. Is that true and what do I do now?

Certainly, its true... First make your system up with wired mouse and keyboard and then try installing wireless mouse and keyboard drivers on it... it's only for first time and after that you can use your wireless mouse and keyboard as default...

Hi there,

I am a Dell Certified System Expert and a Dell Advanced Resolution Expert Certified. For this issue, First I recommend to check all the keys on the keyboard, as it might be there are pressed key that can cause keyboard lock up and encounter your issue, also might be try to use a good known working keyboard. If the issue persist I highly recommend to contact Dell Support as this pertains to hardware issue, might need to reseat some hardware in the computer such as memory or hard drive.

Help i have a dell inspiron 530s and all of a sudden my keyboard and mouse do not work on when the logo of windows comes on in start up nor the mouse or keyboard work but my keyboard works on f2 and f8...


Try restoring your system bios to factory default and this may fix your problem. If not- post again with results and we'll go from there.

Entering System Setup

Turn on your computer.

When the blue DELL logo is displayed watch for the F2 prompt to appear (black screen / white text).

Once this F2 prompt appears, immdiately press F2 .

The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized and is detected. This prompt can appear very quickly. Watch for it to display as the screen powers up, and then press F2. If you press F2 before you are prompted, this keystroke will be lost. There is a small window of time to do this before Windows starts.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again to enter setup. At setup check your bios version. It may need to be flashed (upgraded). Select load factory defaults to see if that will resolve your PCI issues.

How do i unlock my dell keyboard?


Dell Inspiron 530s keyboard unlock
Is the keyboard usb or ps2? If its usb then try another port. If its ps2(Green) then power down the pc by holding in the power button for 8 to 10 seconds. Pull the plug and make sure no pins are bent. Plug it back in and boot back up. This should fix the problem if its ps2. Regards

Wireless mouse does not work after changing batteries.it always has in the past The Dell computer and mouse is probably 8 years old but has always worked.


Try moving the mouse receivers usb plug in to another port. Unplug any new devices and restart computer. Then replug in any new usb devices.
If still not working.......
Look at Office Depot and other office stores for a replacement wireless mouse. I have seen them as low a $9.99 on up. You might even want to upgrade and get a wireless mouse and keyboard set.

Its not the problem with the keyboard or the mouse
it seems that you need the full system scan..
of if you have wired keyboard and mouse connect them to the computer and check using them with the same browsers ... which will determine where the problem is ?

if the wireless keyboard and mouse are working fine
then need to update the drivers
or there is some problem Hack / Virus scan (not sure) but don't worry it could be a magnetic effect of speakers or monitor
you have to check them out
