Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I reformatted my 4600 and my USB arent working.. No troubles showing in the device manager. Computer doesnt recognize any new device when I plug into the USB. Trying to install my printer, but doesnt see it so I tried another usb device but doesnt see that either. I also tried this in all USB on machine. What to do now?

    I have the same issue, but I installed the network and desktop system drivers first and now the chipset driver won't install (hangs at 90%).

    What now?

When you reinstalled XP on your Dimension 4600, did you install the drivers in this order. USB is part of the chipset and the driver will need to be loaded for USB to function normally.

I can't get my usb devices to work on my dell 4600 series pc. It won't reconise anything I try to plug in to the usb ports.


Try deleting your usb drivers.

Right-click My Computer
Manage
Device Manager
USB Controllers
Delete (Generic USB Hub)
Restart computer
(Windows will auto-install the drivers, on reboot)

Plug your device back in, and see i've it works.

Why doesnt it show on computer when i plug it in


What kind of flash drive and computer are u working with? Let me know and I may be able to give u a more accurate answer. Try inserting another device in that USB port and check to see if ur computer is recognizing it in your device manager. Click on Start Tab then Go To Settings , Control Panel Then Click on System Icon , Then Click on the Hardware Tab and Click on Device Manager, scroll down to see if there are any yellow question marks or flags? Leave that Device manager window open and try to re insert your flash drive again and see what response u get?

Cannot connect to computer


FIRST OF ALL, NEVER EVER PLUG IT INTO THE COMPUTER WHILE ITS ON. ALWAYS TURN THE PHONE OFF BEFORE HAND. AS FAR AS YOUR COMPUTER NOT RECOGNIZING THE USB CABLE, IT MAY ACTUALLY BE YOUR COMPUTER. AFTER ALL IF IT WAS THE CABLE, YOUR PHONE WOULDN'T CHARGE SINCE IT IS THE SAME CABLE FOR CHARGING AND USB CONNECTIONS. MY COMPUTER HAS HAD TROUBLE SEVERAL TIMES WHEN PLUGGING IN NEW OR DIFFERENT DEVICES INTO THE PORT. TO CHECK THE USB PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER.... GO TO CONTROL PANEL, THEN DEVICE MANAGER. DOUBLE CLICK UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. IF ANY OF THEM ARENT WORKING PROPERLY THERE WILL BE A YELLOW TRIANGLE WITH AN EXCLAMTION POINT BESIDE THE UNFUNCTIONING USB. IF IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING YOU WILL HAVE TO UPDATE THE DRIVER. IF YOUR PORTS, DRIVERS ETC DONT SHOW THE YELLOW TRIANGLE, THEY ARE WORKING. TRY PLUGGING THE PHONE INTO A DIFFERENT PORT UNTIL YOU FIND ONE THAT WILL ACCEPT IT. I HAVE A LAPTOP AND MY PHONE ISNT RECOGNIZED IN THE SAME USB PORT (ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE COMPUTER) THAT I USE FOR MY PRINTER. I USE A DIFFERENT PORT FOR MY CELL PHONE. IF YOUR COMPUTER IS OLDER , THE USB PORT MAY NOT BE HIGH SPEED. OLDER COMPUTERS HAVE USB PORTS WITH A SPEED OF 1x OR A MIX OF PORTS WITH 1x AND 2.O (2.0 IS HIGHSPEED 1x IS NOT). I HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

Since you have these many problems with your laptop, Firstly try to reformat the system and reinstall all the neccessary drivers. Many times reformatting works well as your OS might malfunction when you have virus or malwares in your laptop.

a. for USB:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. The Device Manager window opens.
  2. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  3. Right-click a USB Root Hub in the list, and then click Properties. The USB Root Hub Properties dialog box is displayed.
  4. Click the Power Management tab.
  5. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each USB Root Hub in the list.
  7. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.

    Windows XP recognizes the new device.
  8. Close the Device Manager window.
b. SD CARD

No usb


If your USB ports are installed correctly and enabled in BIOS, you will see Universal Bus Controller list in the the Device Manager. Double-click your USB in the Device Manager and a dialog box will appear. Click on the driver tab and update the driver. To get to Device Manager right-click on My Computer>click on Hardware>Device Manager. If your computer has a built-in USB device and does not detect the device through the Device Manager, confirm that the USB is enabled in the computers BIOS and that the BIOS supprts USB devices.
