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

Hi!

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

SOURCE: 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.

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

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.

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.

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...
