HP w2207h USB does not work

I have the HP  w2207h  HDMI monitor, it has 2 extra USB inputs on the side, I have tried to plug any USB into it and nothing. everything is working just fine except for that. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Re: HP w2207h USB does not work

Hi DebbieDeaton,

 

  The USB ports will work only if there's another USB cable that connects the monitor to your computer.  So, aside from the power and video cables going into the back of your monitor, you'd also need to connect a USB cable.  This will enable the ports.

 

  If you already have a USB cable connected, then I would suggest  just doublechecking the connection (by disconnecting and reconnecting it).  If you don't have a cable connected, the port for it is on the far edge (the right edge if you're looking at the back).  Take a look at this document for more details on where to connect the cables: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00845864&tmp_track_link=ot_recdoc/c01182749/en_...

 

Regards,

Although I am an HP Employee, the advice given here is my own, and not necessarily that of HP's.

Please post rather than send me a Message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly.

I HAAVE THE SAME MONITOR WITH THE SAME RESULTS!  I GUESS IT IS DUMMY USB PORTS?  JUST BUY A USB PORT WITH 6-8 OUT PORTS, WHICH I DID-PROBLEM SOLVED.

 

SINCERELY,

They are no dummy ports - rtfm:

-> Connecting the monitor to the computer - point 5 - the cable should have come with the monitor.

tried step 5,  I DO NOT HAVE A PLACE TO PLUG USB IN THE BACK OF THE COMPUTOR. I only have a audio in, a  vga plug and HDMI plug. No usb plug. so I can not do "5"
