Try another keyboard and mouse or try your keyboard and mouse on another computer to make sure it's not just the keyboard and the mouse having the issues. if the keyboard and mouse work fine on another system, Test the USB ports with another USB device. could be the ports are going bad if it does not recognize another USB item plugged in.

@newcomer, hit start then control panel then mouse. Then after that Keyboard. You should have two pieces of hardware available.

Setting A.
1, The Synaptics mouse pad and Standard Microsoft keyboard that came as part of your Dell System.

Setting B (the USB alternative)

2. The aftermarket USB mouse and Keyboard that you are trying to make functional.

Make certain that you have the correct item checked as the one to use.
Then go to the properties portion of that device and set up the options of the mouse and keyboard.

3. If the new usb mouse came with installation software, Install it so the new device and drivers are available to the system.

Should be one of the three. Give em a go and let us know

This sounds like a hardware problem and you just need to purchase a new mouse and a keyboard as well.
