Usb ports on side of monitor does not work - Dell Computer Monitors


Answers :

First check that the USB cable is fully connected between the monitor and the computer. Next, check if the monitor's hub will work connected to another port on the computer. (Ports do fail and cables do loosen.) Next check that the device(s) in question will work when directly connected to the computer.

If the hub in the monitor has failed, check if your warranty covers the hub and is still valid. Otherwise, it will be cheaper to get a new USB hub.

I hope this helps.
