monitor usb ports do not work
I just installed windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I was running xp. After I installed the new os my usb ports on my monitor quit working.
My monitor is a dell 1905fp. I assumed it was a driver issue and looked on the dell site but the only driver they had for this monitor was an xp driver.
I also note that the fonts and windows are smaller than they were. I checked the settings and it said this was the best setting for this monitor
I use my usb ports and I would like for my display to be correct again.
I have also posted this to the dell community forum in hopes someone there has resolved this already.
Any ideas would be appreciated

Well this is solved. I checked the device manager and saw that I had an unknown device in the usb section with an 43 error. I don't know why I didn't check this before. I guess I am about 2 days into working with the windows 7 os.
Anyhow I put google to work and found someone with the same error. He suggested.
1. shut the computer down
2. unplug the power to the computer
3. unplug all usb cables to the computer
4. plug them all back in
5. plug in the power cord
6. restart the computer
Yahoo! It worked. My monitor usb ports are working again. I figure I can work around with the resolution settings to get my display back as I like it.
I would say just unplugging the usb cable and plugging them back in would do the trick but this is something I had already tried.
Sorry for the false alarm. It apparently wasn't driver related at all. I think I am going to learn to like this os but it will take me a while to become real familiar with it. After all, I had 7 years to learn xp
