Since those ports are plug and play, there should be something wrong with the operationg system. Are you using Vista, if yes, you better use XP.

I need to know if my computer has usb 2.0 or usb 3.0 as i am wanting to buy a external hard drive.


I'm posting a pic to show you the difference.

The blue colored receptacles, labeled SS with a 3-legged symbol, are USB 3 (higher speed).
But if the plastic tab in the receptacle is not blue (white, gray, or black) then it is USB 2.

(in the pic the 4 bottom connectors are USB connectors, with the top two being USB 3 and the bottom two being USB 2)

Physically can't plug into front usb ports on new Inspiron 660. port will not accept the plug,


I've only ever come across this once before as a technician, and it turned out to be the board, with the ports mounted on, not being set in quite the right place on the inside of the front pannel. I only had to push the board and it located. Hope this helps you.

How to hook up keyboard to my dell Inspiron 530


Keyboard come with two different connection options these days. The old PS2-style (circular with ~5 pins) port are less common on current machines these days. The Dell Inspiron 530 is one of them; you need a USB keyboard or a PS2 to USB adapter. This adapter, http://www.amazon.com/Adesso-Adapter-connects-connectors-ADP-PU21/dp/B00008ZPED , is an example of how you would connect your old keyboard to your new computer. There are USB ports on the front and back of the tower.

If you bought the computer new, it should have come with a USB keyboard.

I hope this helps.

The USB ports have stopped working on my Dell inspiron 620, thus now I can't use my mouse or keyboard.How do I fix this problem?


Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed. You can get to "Device Manger" by clicking on your "Start" button, right click on "Computer" and select "Properties". It will be on the left side top of menu. If there are "Flags" click on them and see what the issue is. It might might be a corrupted software driver.

Dell inspiron n4010 right side usb port not working what is the resolution


Hi,
I also faced the same issue on my dell Inspiron.
The problem is that my USB driver got corrupted somehow and hence my laptop stopped detecting nay USB drive.
I found out that there is a driver that we need to re- install. But then again the problem is
Dell N4010 does not have drivers for Windows 8 :-(
So I needed to install it in compatibility mode.
I made a small article about this issue with snapshots.

This is an external link outside dell forum, I am not sure If I am allowed to do so but I cant write all the steps here:

My Dell Inspiron 530S beeps three times when powered up, the USB ports have no power and the monitor isn't getting a signal. Any suggestions?


Beeps during startup/POST means you have a hardware failure that is stoping the computer from starting up normal. 3 beeps means you have faulty RAM. You could trying removing a stick if u have more then 1 installed, however replacement is ideal. RAM is highly inexpensive and is a DIY project that would take less than 10 minutes to complete. However if your computer is under warranty I suggest calling dell and letting them deal with it.
Here is link to beep codes for future reference
Let me know if you need instructions on to swap out RAM, I would gladly assist, please rate

How do i unlock my dell keyboard?


Dell Inspiron 530s keyboard unlock
Is the keyboard usb or ps2? If its usb then try another port. If its ps2(Green) then power down the pc by holding in the power button for 8 to 10 seconds. Pull the plug and make sure no pins are bent. Plug it back in and boot back up. This should fix the problem if its ps2. Regards

Hi
You probably have a mother board issue. Most likely the video chip. Take this to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com.
