How to copy all driver installation software from my pc tower onto a 16gb usb drive and then plug usb into old laptop with new software


It doesn't work that way. The current driver software that you have installed will not work on another install. Your best bet is is to go Dell website and enter your service tag(serial number) of your computer and download drivers. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04?c=&l=&s=bsd?c=us

USB suddenly malfunctioning on Dell TOwer


It does sound like your ports on the front might be bad. They usually connect to a seperate port on the motherboard than the rear ones, and I have seen devices short out the front ports, such as a USB music player.

You can remove the ports on the device manager, and they should come back ok, without worry. However, I doubt that is going to help the front ones. I think you have a hardware problem.

If that is the case, the easiest solution is to get a USB hub, and run a USB cable from the rear, to the front of the computer.

Flash drive not working


An option that you could do is to plug the flash drive in the back of the computer. The reason is because flash drives derive power from the USB port itself unlike other usb devices that you are using may have their own power or because the USB port in front does not give as much power as the one from the back.

Front panel USB connector


First try plugging it into the motherboard USB on the back of the computer. Sometimes the front panel ones act up a bit. Then make sure the drive letter (f) is not in conflict with another device. You can actually change the drive letter in computer administrator.
