Gateway Optical Mouse w/USB not working on Dell Dimension 8400

\015 I recently purchased a Gateway Optical for my Dell Dimention 8400. I did not pay attention that it had a USB plug in. When I plugged it into the back of the PC in the one open USB port, turn on the PC, nothing happens.\015\012\015\012Is is possible for the two to work together or should I return it?\015\012\015\012Thank you for your time and patience.\015

My husband and I share the Gateway - We usually want to use it at the same times. So a friend gave me the Dell. I had already purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse(for use on a tabletop I had but Staples ruined). I don't remember what makes them work, but I want to access the Roadrunner Internet on the Dell and possible use the wireless keyboard and mouse too since they are more convenient. I don't know how to make this all work.


The wireless keyboard and mouse must have come with some sort of receieved that is plugged into your Dell. If you can unplug this receiever from the Dell and plug it into the Gateway, it should automatically allow the keyboard and mouse to work. ... PC Desktops
