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.

Help, can't seem to get the USB ports on my monitor to work again. I have the following dell monitor 1704fpt 17in. running windows XP Pro sp. 2


Since the USB ports on this monitor are just the powered USB Hub, you should try it with another PC if you know for sure that the USB port of the PC taht is feeding this Powered USB Hub on the monitor are OK, also check the cable.
The USB board replacement for thsi will not be woth it. Also check for 5vdc on PIN1 of the USB port.

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 dell monitor usb ports don't work anyone how to fix it?


Please check if the monitor's usb port is connected to the tower, the monitor only acts like a USB hub / junction. If it is connected then disconnect it from the existing USB port and connect it to a different USB port. Please refer to the monitor manual link given below

Why don't the ports on the monitor work?


This monitor has 8-port USB hub that the USB input of the monitor must be connected to the PC USB port. There are fuses for the USB port also to protect the 5VDC output at the USB ports.

Dell 1907fp USB port not working


The big question is do you have the USB uplink cabled from the monitor, connected to a USB port on the system?

Item #5 needs to be connected to your system's USB port via a USB cable. The ports on the monitor are just a USB hub.

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.
