The Optiplex GX1p did have two USB ports which are on the back. They are the small rectangular jacks just to the right of the round PS/2 keyboard and mouse connectors.

Given the age of the system and the type of processors supported (Pentium II and early Pentium III), these would be the older USB1.0 specification ports, whch are much slower than today's USB2.0 ports. The good news is that this model also has expansion PCI slots, so you can buy a card to go into the unit to add 2 or 4 high speed USB ports if needed. Such a card would cost probably $15 for a two port or $30 for a four port, and should be available in any computer store in your area.

Most older computes have usb ports on the back, if they have them at all. Problem is the older usb ports are slower then the newer usb 2.0 ports. You may want to go and buy a usb card and either install it - which is very easy to do, or have someone else install it for you.

Where do you connect a digital camera on your computer?


Hello again,

Yes, most likely you can transfer pictures with your camera. The only that is required is that you install the camera software to your computer. What brand camera and model do you have? Do you have the cd that comes with the camera? What windows do you have? (95,98,XP, etc..)

Can't load os do you computer Dell only has usb ports


Ensure the Keyboard and mouse are connected to the USB ports nearest the PS2 port on the back of the chassis.

Boot to the BIOS F2 and ensure USB emulation is ON.

If you can't access the bios, reset the BIOS using the Jumper on the motherboard, then USB ports should then work.
