All you have to do is connect the monitor to the CPU using a USB cable in addition to the usual installation ( check the slots available on the monitor for the type of USB cable you need ), then all your USB slots on the monitor will come alive. Its just like a USB extender ( except that this is included in the moniter).

I had similar problem after Windows Update. Instead of Generic USB HUB I had HX2LP Kit (3.03.0000.2). I update driver using old Generic USB HUB driver from Windows. After this everything in back to normal.

How do I connect NEXT7P12-G to bluetooth keyboard?

It looks like your tablet is not Bluetooth-enabled, in which case you cannot connect the Bluetooth keyboard to it. You may try to connect a regular keyboard via the USB port on the tablet (although I believe that USB port may accept only flash drives).

How to insert sandisk cruzer force usb flash drive into computer?

Usb sockets are all same. Haven't changed. There are other sockets that look similar. HDMI, eSata, display port. I would look very closely to make sure you are attempting to install in the correct port. You might first want to take a look at the flash drive end to make sure that there is no damage. Shouldn't be unless you really tried to force it into wrong port. Other than that, it will fit.

How do i activate my usb ports

Most USB ports are on by default.
If you are using a USB mouse / keyboard and they both work.
Your USB ports are working.
If somehow these were turned off, it is most likely in the bios.
Reboot and go into the bios screen. F2 or the Delete key are the most common keys. Usually the monitor will flash these one of these quickly during the boot up process. Hold down the appropriate key till the bios screen opens. Navigate to the USB section and be careful not to change anything else. Wrong setting here and the machine may not boot up. Check to make sure the USB is on Auto, enabled or whatever the bios is for enabling the usb ports. You may have more than one selection. you can experiment a little here. Just note what you select and under which category should you have to return and make another selection.
If your using a Windows machine you may have to reload or update the USB drivers. Slimdrivers is a good update utility found here >>
Download SlimDrivers MajorGeeks
You can update other areas but for now just focus on the USB drivers.
It is not a good idea to update everything at once and then wonder what happened if something goes horribly wrong. :)

Good luck and hope this helps

I have a voyager pro+, about a month old, and now the red light does not flash on when I press the 'on' button, or plug the charger into it. Any ideas?

If your are charging through the USB port, and you have put it in wrong at all at any time, the connection will be shot and it will not charge. If this is still under warranty try to see if you can get it replaced.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

The USB hub/connections cannot be used for driving the monitor... It is only an extra feature so that you can connect USB devices (such as a mouse & keyboard or flash drive) at the monitor instead of the computer ports.

You must use the RGB/VGA connection to use the monitor.

When you turn ON the monitor, it should "announce" itself with a logo...

When you were given the monitor, were you told that it works?

Please connect the monitor and comment back...

What can I use the 2 USB ports on the stand for?

This is a simple HUB that has two type A receptacles and one type B receptacle; you use a printer style plug to connect the Type B receptacle into an available USB port on your computer. Then one port becomes two. It's not a powered hub from what I can see (the ports are on the base, which isn't wired to the monitor, so no power), so that rules out most external hard drives. I don't know of any monitors that use USB for anything, but printers, flash drives, cameras, and the standard small gadgets should work fine on it.
