Hi, the side mounted USB ports on my NEC Multisync 90gx2 monitor do not work


The USB ports on the LCD is a USB hub. To use these ports you have to connect the input of the USB Hub of the LCD to one of the USB ports of the computer through a USB cable. You need a simple USB Printer Cable, which is easily available from any Computer Accessories store. Below is the picture of the cable. The normal USB plug (on the left) goes to the USB Post of the PC and the square one at the right should be connected to the LCD.

yes you can use the usb port but let me tell you one thing very clearly there is problem with these ports either they dont recognize your usb or maybe your monitor screen flickers... so use monitor port with a lot of care and i advised you to atlest read the manual before you do anything.

Why don't the ports on the monitor work?


This monitor has 8-port USB hub that the USB input of the monitor must be connected to the PC USB port. There are fuses for the USB port also to protect the 5VDC output at the USB ports.

Enabling USB ports on Dell monitor


On the back side of the monitor, next to the power connector, you'll find a USB "B" connector (the boxy, square one) You need a USB A-to-B cable to connect your PC to the monitor, not a male-to-male (A-to-A) cable.

Hook that up, and you should get the boo-deep sound from your PC as it adds the new USB hub that's inside the monitor.

If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me!

Side USB ports


You need to connect a USB cable from your PC to the USB port under the monitor.
It is a standard usb cable used by printers with a flat plug on one end and a squareish plug on the other.
You should also have 2 more usb ports under the screen as well. There are normally 4 on Dell screens. 2 side, 2 under, and the one square plug to connect to the PC.
