Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

Here are the HP published specs for your PC:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03137294

 

As you can see, it has six USB 2.0 ports, 2 on the front, 4 on the back.

Good Luck

From: https://www.amazon.ca/Belkin-Active-Extension-Cable-F3U130-16/dp/B0001STJ6M

The USB Active Extension Cable from Belkin ensures you get the best performance and maximum data integrity when you transfer information

 

It uses active electronics to sustain your data signal, so you can connect a peripheral to your PC from an extra 16 feet away.

 

Standard (passive) USB extension cable connections can cause significant data loss over distances of more than 16 feet.

 

So, IT DOES NOT MATTER what type of USB ports you have on your computer.
