Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
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
Thank you for contacting Fixya.

Dell monitors with usb ports come with their own drivers cd. You'll have to install that first to get the usb ports working.

SOURCE: 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.

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.
If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me!
