It might be that they need a newer driver, right click on my computer and select properties on the hardware tab, select device manager. look for a tab called Universal Serial Bus Controllers, see if any of them have a yellow (!) by them if one of them does, it needs drivers, if not, try disabling the devices one by one and then restart your system. follow the steps to reinstall the devices in the add hardware wizard, and this should fix the problem. if not, it could be a hardware malfunction.

Can i use different usb ports? How?


Yes you can unless you have a conflict with another USB device. Simply try another usb port. If that does not work try a usb hub.. also remember most computers have usb port on the front of the computer as well as the back of the computer.

Where can I get a replacement for my 2 front usb ports on my optiplex 760..they are not working??


I've never seen 2 front USB ports that were bad. I've seen 1 that was defective because the USB device that was plugged into it was broken off. However in that case it caused the power supply to short out and prevent the computer from powering on. Here is a link to your model:

If the USB ports on the back of your computer work then the front ones should too unless there is a connector dislodged to motherboard. All USB ports use the same circuit.

I cannot get a SanDisk flashdrive to go into either of the USB ports on my new desktop computer. I am using the USB ports located on top of the computer


To test the functionality of the usb ports in front of the computer
1. Insert another flash drive or another usb device like a usb mouse on front the computer 2. If it detect the usb device that means 2 things flash drive might be bad and the front usb port is working 3. If it does not, It means that the flash drive might be bad or the usb port is not connected to the front panel of the computer 4. Try also inserting the flash drive at the back of the computer see if the usb drive is detected in all ports 5. Check the BIOS for any usb port associativity

My USB ports won't work on my gigabyte MA69VM-S2 mobo with win7


Unlikely to be issues with the OS. Have you recently upgraded to Win 7 from Vista or XP? and did the USB ports work with this OS?
Do ALL usb ports fail or is it just one or two and are these the front USB's or rear USBs?

Keyboard, mouse, front USBs,DVD recorder not working


It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.

Usb port


Probably they didn't set up the front USB ports when they were wiring the computer. If you have the motherboard schematic it will show where the front USB ports connect on the board. Best have a technician take a look at it to determine and hook it up.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Front side USB port is not working


On some computers the front usb ports are like a usb hub, they don't have enough power to power up a hard drive.
