Hey there, I just got two great new Dell Ultrasharp 1908FP monitors. The USB ports on the left side are not working on either! The USB ports in the rear work fine (I have my keyboard and mouse plugged into them now!) I've tested all ports with a flash drive and again, only the rear ones work, not the side ones.
I've gone thru the USB reset procedure as outlined in other threads with no luck.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!

I plugged in a mouse and a web cam into the side USB ports and both were recognized immediately. I tried them in the rear as well and again both worked fine. Seems as though my flash drive is the only thing that won't work on the side ports, which of course is the one thing I need to work there! Please explain!
It is a Lexar JumpDrive 1GB, model # JDA1GB-00-501. It is USB 2.0 and comes up as such on the rear USB ports on the monitor, as well as USB ports on the computer itself and other computers.
it's a very plain-jane USB flash drive. I'm sure you're familiar with the type... about the size of your thumb with a USB connector on one end. Plugs into any USB port. No security features or encryption or passwords on it.
Hope this helps.
As stated, I had done this before. I tried again and same result: The flash drive is not recognized in the side USB ports yet works everywhere else.
Thanks again for your continued support!
