Dell Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

redux 1. (a 100% HDMI issue) and KVM
Keyboard video mouse switch box fails.

now that more information is provided
we see that the DELL PC (not Lenovo)
fails to reconnect to this KVM.
them means the KVM is not making the DELL happy
or the DELL fails to like the KVM.
discovering why HDMI fails and which end is failing is not easy lacking special HDMI tools.
1: try a better KVM, there are many made,
each has weaknesses ! HMDI does not work well or easy in any KVM environment.

1:or use DVI buy a 12 buck DVI switch and end it
2: buy 2nd monitor and avoid KVM forever.
3: buy new and bigger (dream big) monitor with 2 DMI ports on the rear, that allows you to switch DVI in the OSD menus of said screen monitor.

A: the newest dell driver for intel GPU fails.
B: The KVM might have firmware upgrade, IDK ask them.

Ctrl and Alt are not repeat keys. While holding them down, press and release the Del key and you may get the required result.

But to get control again, you may have to hold the power button down for a few seconds till the computer actually shuts off, not just till it goes into sleep mode. Then a restart may give you some choices to proceed.

Please connect an external speaker or headphones and check if you get sound. If sound works then the issue is with the onboard speakers in the laptop.

If sound does not work with the external speakers or headphones then the issue could be with the sound card driver or settings.

It sounds to me like the mouse buillt into your laptop is conflicting with the Dell external mouse. If you go into control panel and click on mouse, you can disable your built-in mouse. Restart your computer with the USB mouse plugged in and see if that does the trick. I would be surprised if it does not. On the off chance it doesn't work, you will have to enable your built-in mouse and we can check to see if there are any additional conflicts happening through your hardware profiles in the system area of control panel.

wiki, TPM and UEFI, by laws we made it harder.

the service manuals, cover this, if easy.
the service manual online shows, zero on this topic.
BIOS PW reset..

ask at dell.

post to them , and magic happens,
only Dell secrets are at real DELL.

nice post, but no problems stated.
no issues or bad symptoms stated.
why not try it first then ask.? if there is a problem.?

it is not a DELL keyboard, it's made by Logitech (top brand)
if they are old,???? both need a new battery or it will not work.
inside mouse, inside keyboard, wireless needs a good battery.

NO PC stated, DELL. just DELL. dell what? it has model.
NO OS stated, of the 100s possible.
if windows, say that and the version for 10x better answers.
is the PC on the internet (connected) if yes windows plug and play will load drivers to your alien keyboard/mouse.
but not if XP, I bet. i bet that fails hard.
XP can not use newer devices, on USB, do to its dead state.
Same is true of VISTA, (it too is dead for new things added)

this thing from year 2000?

Dell Computers &... | Answered on Apr 22, 2018

well, they told you the truth,
so what is the question/?
is it failing? (unstated by you)
no ! then use it, and do nothing.
yes?,failing tell the helper what is failing (actions that fail)
then we fix only that failure, the hard way.
best is join an Android Forum (dell is not that , here)
