Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I want to use the USB Hubs (4) located on my monitor. Which port do I run the usb cable to the back of the tower? Would it be the square one or one of the rectangular ports. I have tried running a cable from the square port to the usb port in the back of the tower but this will not work. Thanks for your help...

Hook up to home pc


Today's laptops and desktop computers are more user-friendly. As more people start use computers, operating systems, software and hardware accessories are coming with better instruction manuals and streamlined interfaces. Here are a few basic steps to hook up your computer no matter which brand you bought.

Connect the power cable to the back of the computer tower. The male end of this plug is often on the computer, but it is recessed into the casing. Once this power plug is connected, you don't want to plug it into an outlet until the entire computer is set up. Attach the monitor cables to the back of the monitor and then to the back of the computer tower. This cable will probably be the VGA type, which has a wide set of prongs in the middle and two screws on the outside. Be sure to twist the screws in to ensure the cable has a solid connection. Secure the monitor's power cable to the back of the monitor and then plug it into an outlet or power strip. Attach the mouse to the USB port on the back of your keyboard. The keyboard then plugs into another USB port on the back of the computer tower. Turn on the computer and the monitor.

If the computer powers up but the monitor doesn't display anything, make sure the VGA monitor cable is secured. If the status light on your monitor doesn't turn on, check the power cable connection. Check that the mouse and keyboard work once the computer turns on. Now you can hook up other devices, such as a printer or a web cam. A printer often can connect to a USB port and also may have its own power cable; a web cam usually just plugs into a USB or firewire port.

Where is the port for a computer hookup


The USB port is hidden inside the unit. For pictures see here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000500/000057/faq000557_002.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc240c_all&Cat=2

Use the plastic tabs on the sides of the machine to lift the scanner cover up until it locks in the open position. Behind the control panel on the front, the USB cable port on the right (sort of in a ditch). Route the USB cable through the trench and out the back of the printer. Then connect the other end of the cable to the computer. (direct connections are preferred, self-powered USB hubs usually can work. Bus powered hubs often can not send the scanner data properly.)

I hope this helps.

Damaged USB Port


Ok I think the best method to "Fix" this would be to get your self a 4 - 5 port USB card, they are, real cheap, insert it into a spare slot, inside your PC, and install the drivers, if any, and use that one. And simply ignore the other one all together.

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.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini 250GB hard drive beeping


I had the same problem and the Maxtor/Seagate website did not have any solutions. I finally got in touch with Tech Support and got a fix. I was using it with a Dell tower and plugging into a USB port in the front. I also was using an after market cable.

I learned the Maxtor is a power hog and beeps and shuts down when it is not getting enough power. I did not know but the USB ports on the front of a desktop/tower computer do not provide as much power as a port on the back (the back ports are sometimes directly connected to the motherboard). I got a USB extension cable and connected it to a USB port in the back and it solved the problem.

I also learned that most laptop USB ports are not powerful enough to run the Maxtor. Mine would also not work if you attempt to share it by using an unpowered USB hub. I have gotten it to work with a powered desktop USB hub (Belkin).

I believe that this may explain why you get a "Y" cable with the drive. I could not find an explaination for the cable or how to use. There may be an accessory to purchase that attached to the cable and powers it.

Why don't the usb ports work on the side of monitor


is there an extra cable, aside from the Power Cord, and the VGA Cable? if not, look on the back of the monitor, there should be a similar plug in like a USB printer would have, its kinda square. If there is, you just need a USB printer cable to make it work.

USB outlets


I'm assuming you are speaking of the USB ports on the Monitor?

Do you have the USB cable running from the back of your computer to the back of your monitor? For those ports to work, you need a USB cable that runs from the computer to your monitor. This is a cable in addition to the power cable and the video cable. Verify you have three cables connected.

If you are not speaking about the USB ports on the monitor, please advise...

Side USB ports


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.

Monitor usb


There should be a USB cable from one of the usb ports on your computer to a small square (upstream) USB port on the back of your monitor. This will activate the four (downstream) usb ports on your monitor.
Good luck...and I hope this is helpful!!

Replacement USB port for my scanner, how can I find the one I need?


If you mean the USB Cable (not USB port as in your question) then you need a standard 'computer to peripheral' cable. It has the regular USB rectangular plug on one end (this part goes into the computer) and an almost-square plug on the other end (this part goes into the scanner.) I say "almost" square because it has two rounded corners to help with orientation.

As additional reference, these types of cables are commonly used to connect USB hubs to computers. For example, the USB hub built into my Dell monitor also uses this standard cable.
