Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

I have a dell computer I think its a 3100 and none of the three usb ports are working. Is there a way to have this fixed?


Answers :

Dear,
have you install the new windows..
is it you first try..

If you have installed the windows and the usb ports are not working, you need to install the drivers of the motherboard and can be got from this site..
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_3100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=-1&impid=-1

you need to select your operating system and the other selection and can recieved the drivers..

if it was working fine and immeditely, it stopped working due to some reason then again do this step..
hope it will surely fix the issue...
By the way, if this method doesnt work, then you have check whether the usb ports are enable from the CMOS setup by pressing DEL of F key that if shows in startup to go in it..

goodluck dear....
