You need to connect a USB cable from your PC to the USB port under the monitor.
It is a standard usb cable used by printers with a flat plug on one end and a squareish plug on the other.
You should also have 2 more usb ports under the screen as well. There are normally 4 on Dell screens. 2 side, 2 under, and the one square plug to connect to the PC.

Usb ports do not work


I have a 24" Dell monitor with built-in USB and SD sockets. Sometimes I have had problems with these not being responsive. This usually comes down to electrical connection.

You should do these in order, also testing for USB port availability at each step .
#1 is the monitor powered up? (USB is active only when monitor is switched on with power button on front of bezel)
#2 check that the USB cable at both ends is plugged in! (you need electrical connectivity)
#3 check that the USB port on the PC can see another device like a memory stick

#4 check your PC's software (drivers must be loaded and the USB port recognized)

Can I use the USB ports on the left side of my Dell 1704FPT monitor to connect devices? (e.g., Logitech webcam)


yes you can use the usb port but let me tell you one thing very clearly there is problem with these ports either they dont recognize your usb or maybe your monitor screen flickers... so use monitor port with a lot of care and i advised you to atlest read the manual before you do anything.

My usb ports on the side of my Dell LCD monitor do not work


Did it work before? It may have lost 5vdc feeding the USB interface board or the USB IC may have gone out, Check to see if pin 1 of the USB has 5vdc on it.

Enabling USB ports on Dell monitor


On the back side of the monitor, next to the power connector, you'll find a USB "B" connector (the boxy, square one) You need a USB A-to-B cable to connect your PC to the monitor, not a male-to-male (A-to-A) cable.

Hook that up, and you should get the boo-deep sound from your PC as it adds the new USB hub that's inside the monitor.

If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me!

Dell monitor setup


There is a USB cable that goes from the monitor to your computer. It's the same kind of USB cable that is used to connect to printers.
