The reasons why would take too long to describe so, suffice to say that I have two USB rear ports and one front one. The front one was disabled by an expert helping me and that left only the two rear ones. I recently bought an HP mouse with no ball and a USB plug. My printer is also USB connected and when I want to use my scanner I have to disconnect the printer and connect the scanner up.
Result? I can no longer use the copying routine using my HP scanner since when the scanner is connected the printer is not.
Can anyone help and tell me how to enable the front port again please.
I have XP Pro on a NEC Direction SM 900 with 384 memory.
I hope some techie can help. Many thanks in anticipation..
Yes all he as done is removed the internal plugs for the ports but you need to know which plugs and the correct connection for the plugs also look for number one pin near the port pins this normally is the red wire
