    well all four of the usb ports on back work great it is just the on the front that i am trying to get working and it is plugged into the mobo but also like i had said there are two places it can be plugged into and i dont know which one is the correct one...i really perfer to having the ones on the front work because it is easier to access and i dont have an extention for the usb on the back and a lso tried to redown load the drivers but said that they already existed...so i guess i might be good there...well i hope i am..

    i will recheck the circuit but i didnt see anything the first time round, but thank you for trying. I was hoping it was just the drivers for it, but that is not it either and if don't get them to working I will just have to get an extension for the back panel, and once again thank you

Hello,

Do use in the front ports, sometime this port is unplug to the motherboard so it need to connect before you can use that port. In the back port you can always use that ports in there it is safe to connect any plug and play device such as flash disk or usb port printer. if this both not recognize your any device you inserted then probably your device is dead. try insert your device to other pc to see if still working if not then maybe the driver of your pc are not installed. try reinstall all the driver of your system.

may this help.

    It is great, then your problem is in the front ports, I recommend that maybe extension work great, however if you insist to connect the front panel then you can refer to this picture for right connection.(careful wrong connection it damage your device that is why i suggest usb extension from back ports)

    Hello Again,

    That is why i giving you this link http://vermeulen.ca/PICT5339-frontpanel-... for the proper cable coding in connecting your front panel usb ports. Just open your casing and then trace the wire connecting to front P usb ports and then refer to the picture (the given link) to connect to the mainboard.

    thank you for using fixya.

    Ok,

    USB cable connection code are the same in all motherboards what ever brand is it. so if you tried that then probably the front panel uSB ports got grounded. If you have a slight knowledge in electronic then repairing the circuit in it will resolve your problem.

    Sorry for not resolving the issue but in every issue there is a very useful option. so why don't utilize the very good option.
    "Don't let your ideas block by this problem. This will make you create complex ideas. but if you consider the issue and utilize it you end up in open minded and it will resolve the issue.

Usb ports stopped working


Hi thedrogue429. it would be hard to tell if it's a hardware or a software problem because you hear something when you connect. You will have to try with other USB devices to see. In case you DID try with other devices and none of them worked. Get a PCI usb card. They cost prob $10 and you can install it yourself. It's really easy. In case that doesnt work you will need to reinstall Windows but anyways you will have more USB ports. I hope this helps and dont forget to rate and give positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

Pictures not generated through usb port.Is there any softwere to solve the problem.


ok if its a digital camera? that you are pluggin into usb port, look at the camera does it ask to connect to pc?, select yes on the camera, windows should detect the device and install the relevant drivers to communicate to your computer, then just go to my computer select your camera like a hard drive by double clicking and this should bring up your photos onto computer, I really need more info so if this doesnt work please feel free to get back to me.
Your welcome,

I just bought a Loigitech Premium 4-port hub but it does not work on my computer. I have a Dell Inspiron 510m laptop of about 2002/03 vintage. when I first plugged it in I got the message (something...


First go ahead and plug the hub back in and see if the ports are working. If they are not. I would try to go into control panel and then goto system and then hardware and then Device Manager. Scoll down to the USB Connection Field. See if they are any explanation points in yellow over any of the devices in the usb connection fields. If there are, Then its a driver issue. I would right click on them and click uninstall... Once doing so you can right click on any field and then click on scan for hardware changes. This will make the computer re scan for the USB Device Hub that you just purchased.

Note: Currently there doesnt seem to be any drivers availible for this device for Windows Vista.

Hope this helps

Usb ports


do you have the lastest drivers for your chipset (motherboard) installed? are you using the front or rear USB ports? If you're using the front then make sure the front panel USB ports are actually plugged into the motherboard.

First turn off your computer let it rest for about 5 minutes. Then restart it again. Usually this is all what systems need. Next try checking the usb attached to the computer before turning it on again. Plug and unplug it. If there is no major problem on your mouse. This should do the trick. Please dont forget to rate me.

Trouble with Kensington Pocket Mini Hub USB 2.0 and Apple iPod.


I believe the reason you have this problem is your trying to run too many USB items than your pc can handle at the same time. Since you only have 1 USB port on your pc it may not have enough power to run an iPod and your DSL at the same time.
