Question about Dell (E210882) Motherboard
Verify that indeed it's the computer or USB device that's failing if possible by using the device on another computer.
Also it's possible the USB device requires a 2.0 interface but your dell MB only provides 1.x, or that it has a larger power requirement then that USB port will provide.
Go to http://support.dell.com/ and make sure you are using a, and the proper chipset driver and see if there are any supplemental USB drivers/fixes there.
Assuming your OS is windows, it might be a good idea to go to
http://www.update.microsoft.com and make sure you have all the updates (with a possible hardware one).
Else if you determine the USB port is bad or necessary (to meet 2.0 or power requirement) , you can always get a USB port PCI card.
You can buy a 5 port USB card for around as low as $5 USD online.
