  • Forum Reply: Re: Keyboard failure

    I just had the same problem: 1. Keyboard failure message. 2. Neither keyboard nor mouse works. It happened after I had done a defrag on the hard drive. I don't know if that did it, but it's suspicious. The computer works--I can link to the hard drive from my other computer and update files on...
  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 8700 - FACTORY RESTORE FUNCTION DOES NOT WORK BECAUSE IT TURNS OFF USB ports!!!!!

    I recently had a similar problem and I think they are both related. I have not tried this using the factory restore.

    Restore didn't work--that was the easiest thing to try, so I tried it first. Next will be the jumpers. Then, the battery.

  • Forum Reply: Re: Keyboard failure

    In my case, I got past the error message because one USB port is working and I have a port extender plugged into it (although I haven't tried plugging anything else into that port just to see if something else--like a camera--would also work). So I have the computer working (hoping that it will keep...

  • Forum Thread: Studio XPS8100 Buzzing and Freezing

    Hello I have a 2.5 year old Studio XPS 8100 Windows 7 OS. Very infrequently, it would momentarily freeze and emit a loud buzz. Then it would be fine. It was so rare that I ignored it.

    The Optiplex 755 I'm working on has no power saving features in the BIOS Setup for USB devices. And about 3 sec. after the XP startup Logo appears the numlock and caps lock lights go out and the keyboard and mouse appear to be dead. I've tried other KB & Mouse but the results are the same...

  • Forum Reply: Re: Keyboard failure

    I just realized that the problem is not really a "keyboard failure" or a "mouse failure." Those are just the symptoms: it's really a USB port failure, because nothing using those ports works--keyboard, mouse, or picture transmissions from a camera. So the "real" questions...
