My Dell Laptop USB ports are not working any more

Do they not work on any device? Have you tried using a device that they used to detect in the past? Maybe the device you are using is too advanced for the old D600. For example, I would imagine it would have a hard time detecting a 1TB external hard drive.

If it will not detect a device that used to work in the past I would go into the BIOS or System Setup and make sure the USB is enabled. When you turn the laptop on just watch the screen and it will tell you which key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. I think it is the F2 key for the D600.

I have just purchased a new Belkin Bluetooth comfort mouse. my dell inspiron laptop is not detecting it please help, i think something is missing even when bluetooth is on

you might have a small usb dev ice that plugs into one of the usb ports --check this first--personaly i think optical mice are very smooth and precise and dont need any extra drivers.
check your soft for IRDA devices and enable if necessary --good luck!

Bluetooth device not detected in device manager and not even in bios. bluetooth device shown none in bios. what can be done to solve the problem.

if the bluetooth device is not detected in the BIOS, chances are, your laptop did not ship with a bluetooth device. Try to go to and check the original system configuration to verify if your system indeed came with a bluetooth card. you can also check with dell support about it. if you have verified the card is available and it is enabled in the BIOS, try to remove and reconnect the card and if it is still not detected, you may have to get a new bluetooth card or request for warranty service/replacement if applicable.

Dell inspiron's USB ports can't detect webcam

Try a different USB device...see if the PC detects it.
If other devices, like a flash drive run, then your web cam is dead. You can try the web cam on a friends computer to see if it's ok.

If the web cam is good, and no USB devices work in your USB slot, You can check the USB controllers in the "Device manager"

right click "My Computer"
select "Manage"
select "Device Manager"

Click the + sign for "Universal Serial Bus controllers"
Do you have any errors?

I hope this points you in the right direction...Good Luck!
