    Best solutions is ti use a Dell - USB compatable Mouse and Keyboard.
    IF no Dell Mouse/Keyboard; try any USB mouse & keyboard, most work some don't.

    You need to get into the Dell System file recovery partition. The easiest way is to call Dell support.

    Go here for more information; http://support2.jp.dell.com/docs/systems/opsx280/en/ug/advfeat.htm#1052715
