Re: Dell wireless keyboard and mouse

Kbd, mouse and speakers are usually standard components and compatible on any PC. Only thing that could be an issue is if the speakers are of the older type that have no  power cord. Most new PC's use powered speakers.

Hello  lanatep1701, I can confirm that my Dell keyboard, mouse and powered speakers work quite well on at least two different newer HP models. These were the cable type and not wireless.


The wireless keyboard and mouse should work, since they use the standard Bluetooth modules.


You would need to insure the Bluetooth drivers are installed.


Hope this helps.
