RE: Inspiron 531 usb problem
Many thanks for the reply
Sorry I was not clear enough on the front ports
The front ports work always.
I will try all the rear ports tomorrow to see if it one of the ports or all of them.
If any of the rear ports work this solves my problem
It has been a problem since I relocated the PC so one of the rear ports MAY work. I just assumed they would all perform the same. I cannot be sure the usb's are plugged in as they were originally
The wireless keyboard and mouse have the Dell transmitter plugged into the USB - it is wireless after this
It is clear after your note that some ports are not activated until start up is complete
Thanks and I will update the post tomorrow after I try the other rear ports
