My son tried to put a usb lead into my pc the wrong way and he bent all copper pins inside is it easy and cheap to repair or could i connect the tower to my laptop???? theres a hard one for you teckno


No, it isn't hard.

Wrapping your mind around Quantum Mechanics, and String Line theory, is a little tough; though. lol!

Will make sense in a moment.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
Those are Front Panel USB ports.

On the motherboard are USB headers.
Small rectangular shaped pieces of plastic, that have contact pins sticking up.

EACH USB header will support TWO USB ports in the Front Panel.

Therefore; there will be two cables coming from two USB ports, in the Front Panel; and connect to ONE USB header on the motherboard.

IF, you feel the contact pins in the USB ports in the Front Panel, may be Touching each other; I strongly advise disconnecting the cables TO them.

Disconnect from motherboard.

Why?
Because if they touch each other, it will short the USB header out; on the motherboard.
This = No.

Then just use the USB ports on the back of the computer.

!O_O!

This is to save money, Mark; and save your computer.

Going further; If there are enough funds available, then I suggest replacing the Front Panel I/O/USB/Audio Control Panel Board,

A) Removing the Computer Cover

B) Removing and Installing Parts


Connect desktop to laptop to do what?
For USB port availability? IMHO that is like shooting yourself in the foot.

Also, how do you propose to accomplish this?

The USB ports in the Front Panel, are for ease of accessibility.
(As the young tyke has found, lol!)

Connecting a laptop greatly detracts from this.
Jus sayin'.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hte usb 2.0 ports are not recognised


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View

Does the "tree" show any "question-marks"?
Expand the 'USB' branch of the tree.
Does it show that the device-drivers for the USB 2.0 ports have been installed?

and download the offered USB device-drivers.

Start up fault


I'm not an expert at this!!
I looked up Dell Tech Faults on another pc.
Disconnect power and press on button to discharge pc. Remove side panel. Remove all USB port cables including hubs. Remove memory from the CRIMMS. Reconnect memory. Reconnect usb's. Replace panel and power cord. You can always connect to Delle Tech Support - doesn't cost.

For some reason only known to anoraks or rocket scientists--- this works and pc is restored to former glory.

Hope this works for you too.

1 USB Port Failure


Hi Guys

Unfortunately after looking at the computer installation details i was at fault, although i have had
the computer for well over 2 years and this is the first time it has happened.
My Dell Dimension 5150 has 7 USB ports 5 at the back and 2 in the front and it appears that i have
connected the keyboard and mouse to the wrong ports.
There are two ports at the bottom allocated for the keyboard and mouse and for some reason i had
them in the top three ports hence my problem but still not sure why it happened.
Anyway my Dell Dimension 5150 is now running OK and no further help is needed.

Many Thanks.

Dell usb problems


the only thing i can think of is your usb support in the bios settings which can be accessed by pressing del button while the comp is starting that option should be enabled if that doesnt work i think your keyboard and mouse might need replacing i can't see all usb ports being faulty it's very unlikely jim regards
