I assume you are using a USB printer in which case you would insert the USB cable form your printer into the USB socket in the front of your e-machine computer. A USB port is the rectangular port, either found at the rear of the computer mainboard or in the front of the computer chassis/case.

My printer is plugged into one of the two usb ports at the front but I got a message saying it would run faster if it was plugged into a high speed port which when I checked it says I have 8 of but where...

Usually the main usb ports for the pc will be on the rear panel of the machine. If you feel safe to do so, switch the machine off and unplug from the power source, remove the side of the machine and touch a piece of bare metal on the chassis to remove any static build up in your body, then have a look around on your mainboard, try to trace the cable from the front usb connections to the mainboard, and see if there is a usb2 version of the socket which they are plugged into, swapping to this may solve your problem.

Hope this has been helpful.

Usually the printers have only one USB port. If you had broke it, then it can be replaced (if mainboard is NOT DAMAGED). USB port is very cheep but you will need tools and skills to replace it. There is only USB input port(from flash memory stick) in front of the printer
good luck

Printer installation Don't see a place to plug in a cable for my HP 970cse printer

The HP 970cse is a USB printer. The ET135201 has 6 USB ports

  • 6 - USB 2.0 (2 front, 4 rear)

  • Connect your printer to either the front or rear ports. Note: a USB cable is not included with the printer and must be purchased separately.

    Thanks, Jim

    My printer says it is, "Off the hook."

    hello, i think that you may have the phone line plugged into the wrong port, the phone line from the wall to the machine should be plugged in the whit colored port, there is also some lettering that says 1-line, if you have something plugged into the 2-ext port, check that device.

    The printer is no longer recognized when it is plugged into my USB port

    I suggest you test the cable and the port. Get a known working USB device and see if it is recognized. Try the printer on another port (preferably with a known good cable). Check if your computer has been set to disable any of the ports (to avoid a security problem or to save power).

    I hope this helps.

    (the front ports on a desktop can have their cable come loose inside the machine so that is one more place to check)

    Please try to check if your USB port both rear and front USB port are not defective. Most common problem of defective usb ports are when plug your usb devices it won't recognize the device you inserted. So to make sure that your USB Ports are not the main cause why your computer won't recognize devices you inserted.
