PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows 2000
Problem Application Name & Version: N/A
Problem Hardware Make & Model: DELL 1703FPs monitor
Error Messages: The installation failed because a function driver was not specified for this device instance.



I get the above error whenever I try to plug the monitor with built in USB ports into the computers USB port.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers.  I've tried all the USB ports on the computer and still get the same message.  Any help would be appreciated.

First off, are you trying to run you monitor through the USB ports? If so, be advised that this won't work. Attach the monitor to the primary VGA out on either the videocard or the motherboard.

If you are trying to attach it as a secondary monitor, attach it to the secondary VGA outlet on the videocard or videochip on the motherboard.

Second, if you are trying to use the USB hub underneath the monitor, maybe you want to install the drivers for this hub before you try to attach it to any of your USB ports. It is also wise to check which USB hub it is (USB 1.1 or USB 2.0), before trying to daisy-chain it further.

In other words, you need drivers before you can attach it.

The monitor is connected to the VGA port.  Where would I get drivers for the USB hub?  The ports were working and then suddenly started giving this error.

If the hub is integrated into the monitor, I would look for the drivers on the monitor manufacturer's site.
