Some USB 3.0 connectors are very tight plugging in.
I had that problem on my Dell laptop, but i tried another USB input and it was ok.
Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: dell precision not recognising usb 2.0

sounds not,  some of the older systems only have 1.1, Usb 2 is not all that old (about 2-3 years).
you can upgrade to USB2 bu adding a USB2 PCI card to your system, this would give you some ports on the back and it may be possible to link the ports on the front to the new PCI card to upgrade those as well (depending on how they are connected to the mobo)
you can get USB2 cards with a Pin header which would allow for a pin block connection.

SOURCE: USB port problem

I would try first of all making sure that all of your drivers are up to date. I am saying this because it is always a good first step, but I am not 100% confident that this will fix it. There are a few updates that are listed as URGENT for your specific computer. The link to your drivers is below. The main one that concerns me is the Intel Chipset Driver located under chipset. This is listed as URGENT and may be a solution to your problem. The chipset is part of the motherboard that can be responsible for controlling your USB ports. If this does not remedy the situation I would contact Dell support for a possible solution.

try reinstalling the chipset drivers from

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&osl=EN&catid=27&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PLX_GX620&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en

Select the Operating system
The Category as Chipset
Importance should be All
Click on the Intel driver
Download now
File name is R132539.EXE

If this does not work you will be having 2 usb at the back and in the front of the system.IF the back does not work than you need to get a local tech out at your place as it is a problem with the USB controller on the motherboard and that might have to be replced .If it is the front USB (Only if you have them) then there is a cable coming from the USB controller to the fromnt usb ports that cable might have got unplugged for that you need to open the tower.But i would still recommend a local tech.

SOURCE: usb ports not recognizing devices

You might be drawing too much power from the usb port, if you're not using a powered usb hub.
Unplug all your usb devices. Go to the device manager and uninstall the usb controllers, then reboot your system and they will be reinstalled. connect the usb devices one by one and try to ascertain which is causing the problem. Some powered devices like printers can conflict with devices that require power from the port, and sometimes there are driver conflicts that can be resolved through the use of a hub, or connecting the devices to different ports or in a different sequence. You may also need to update or reinstall drivers for usb devices such as the PCI bridge. Please see this link for more info on troubleshooting usb. And this for possible cause.
For further reading, see here and here.
If you work through that and still have trouble, write back with the results and we'll help you to sort it out.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

Computer does not reconize mermory stick


Either the port on the computer is bad or the memory stick is bad.

If you are using a usb port to plug in the memory stick, try another usb port.

Try plugging the memory stick into another computer to see if it works or if it is bad.

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in


Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

UBS port won't allow my memory stick to go in is there a lock on it???


Hello !

Be certain you are trying a USB port. It is rectangular in shape. The USB memory stick will only go in one way. Try flipping it over.

If still a problem ...

Either your USB memory stick is bad or your USB port on your notebook is bad.

Try another memory stick or try a different USB port on your notebook - should determine which is OK and which is bad.

Hope this helps.

USB PORTS


does your usb mem stick have any light indicators? if yes , whenever you put you usb stick, does it light? if it lights are USB ports is still ok,  You just have to reformat or partition you USB stick.
(you can also try other devices like usb mouse or any usb devices that lights up when you connect it)

if there are no lights if you plug, or no indication that a power goes to your stick, its possible that your usb your are busted. if this is the case, if your laptop has a PCMIA slot, you can find a pcmia USB card, if you dont have. your only option is replace the  motherboard.

Am I supposed to just put the memory stick in the usb port in the front of my cpu? How long does it take before it's done. This is the first time I've ever purchased this.


Most of these portable memory sticks are all plug and play. This simply means they are ready to be used whenever and wherever. Just plug in the drive to your USB port and drag files into the listed hard drive. Just remember, do not pull this stick out of the USB port without pressing "safely remove hardware" on your start bar. Failure to do this can result in frying your flash memory. Best of luck!

My computer usb ports are not recognizing my i pod or any other device.it wont accept a new drier.


Some usb ports on the front side of the computer may not function properly. So try to plug the device on back side usb ports. If no success, then check the bios setting to enable USB ports.

Usb ports not picking up memory stick


Is it just Memory Stick, or everything that you plug into USB?
Try following:
  1. plug in other USB device into ports
  2. if it does not detect any USB device on any port on your computer
  3. if both front and back USB do not work it may be taht USB is turned off in BIOS, or USB driver is corupted
  4. If you have front USBs and they just do not work there is wire connecting them to the motherboard since it may be loose, if connection is OK than they are dead.
  5. If just back USB do not work than they are dead>
