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.

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
Select the Operating system
The Category as Chipset
Importance should be All
Click on the Intel driver
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.

do one thing disconnect all the devices connected to the usb and if possible use a ps2 mouse to do the step i am going to tell you or if u can use the keyboard that would be fine ...
go to device manager and uninstall all that is under universal serial bus ... remove everything that says root hub and than restart the system

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.

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.
