No you only need 1 USB but its a hard thing to do. see if you can do it whit the internet port first. connect our Dell to you PS3 it will look for it on you pc and then it will find it but not connect. im not that good at it but if you run dxdiag and test connect in networks. now go onto you ps3 and go to network connect and test it there to.

good luck

My TV (42" Full HD


Hi,

Yes you can - but not with a USB cable. USB is only for data (file) transfer.

What you are attempting to do is use your TV as a PC monitor, therefore it needs to be connected to your TV using a PC monitor cable (15-pin D-SUB/VGA). You will also need a separate audio cable from your PC to your TV if you want to use the TV speakers for audio. If you are using a receiver or amplifier with external speakers, you can connect the audio out from the PC directly to the amplifier/receiver.

It is also possible to connect the PC to the TV with an HDMI cable if your PC has an HDMI out port. However, some TVs wont accept an HDMI signal from a PC and this method of connection can cause other issues, so I would recommend using the PC monitor cable method.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Ip address failed


  • In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
  • Laptop with WiFi
  • Ethernet cables
  • USB cable
  • Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
    File Sharing
  1. Step 1 Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connectionmag-glass_10x10.gif Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
  2. Step 2 Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
  3. Step 3 Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
    Connecting to a Monitor
  4. Step 1 Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
  5. Step 2 Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
  6. Step 3 Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
  7. Step 4 Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE

HOW DO YOU CONNECT THE PS3 HARD DRIVE TO UR PC?


The hard drive in the PS3 is the same as a laptop hard drive.

Unfortunately there is no way yet to connect the PS3 to the PC over a network, so you will have to remove the hard drive from the computer and physically connect it to the computer.

There are two ways that I know of:
First:
1) Take the hard drive out of the PS3
2) Open your computer case.
3) Install the hard drive just like you would any other hard drive.

Second:
1) Take the hard drive out of your PS3
2) Put the hard drive into an external usb 2.5" hard drive enclosure.
3) Plug the enclosure into your computer's USB port.

Where do hook up wireless. I have dell desk top.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, wireless mouse makes use of the USB port to connect its base/receiver. Depending on the exact model of the Dell desktop, there would normally be USB ports at the rear of the computer. Some others have 2 USB ports at the front or side.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

No cable to connect priner with computer came in the box


A lot of the newer printers, to save money, come without the connection cables (especially if they are "bundled" free with other equipment). It's just a standard USB cable (looks like a flat connector at one end and a box with one edge rounded at the other) and can be purchased at just about any retail store that carries electronics. Just let them know that you need a USB cable. The standard length is 6 feet but you can also get them in 8 or 10 feet, as well, for a little extra.

One extra note, if you don't have enough USB ports on the front or back of your computer USB hubs (usually comes with 4 ports) are fairly inexpensive (around $20US) and very handy for putting the plugs somewhere easier to reach (like on top of your desk instead of under it).

Let us know how it turns out!
