    Friend
    You mentioned that your USB drive is acting odd that means its getting connected sometimes and lapsing at other.
    Perhaps there is some kind of fault in your USB connector. You can try cleaning the US slot with a dry clean tidy cloth.
    Avoid using any untidy and wet piece of cloth. But I am afraid that it worsen if done manually.
    If this too doesn't help, I would recommend you to visit the nearest service centre.

    If your Dell Inspiron laptop is brand new and within warranty then it is good for you.
    Take it to your dealer shop and tell him about the problem. He will surely solve your problem without charging any money.
    Don't do any physical activity using equipment manually because it can damage your laptop.

    Hello,

    If you have problem with your USB drive than it means that the connection of the USB from the mother board is lose.
    To make sure that your USB drive is faulty try using the USB things on another computer.
    If those things are working correctly there than you can be sure that its the drive which is faulty.
    As you mentioned that it is a Dell inspiron .
    You can call the dell people and tell them this problem.
    I am sure they will have a solution for your problem


    All the best

    dear friend,

    It seems that the connection of your USB drive is no longer with the motherboard.

    At first try to clean up the UBS port manually by a bud or dry cotton.

    if the problem doesn't get solved then you have to contact with the service station.

    Good Luck.

    hii

    If your USB drive sometimes connect and sometimes not then the problem is pretty much clear that there is some fault in the USB drive slot of your laptop..

    Just try to clean it from inside and then use it ...
    As sometimes it happens that dust go inside the USB drive slot and causes this type of problem ...
    So , first remove any type of dust from the USB drive slot and then try to use ...

    If problem persists further then i would suggest you to take your laptop to the repair shop and get it checked...
    thanks

    Re: USB drive errors with Windows powered Dell Inspiron laptop

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............

    1.Firstly i hope this may be the problem of the drivers of the USB drive.

    2.The drivers of the USB drive may be corrupted.

    3.So you try to up-grade them.

    4.To do so you go to the desktop.

    5.Make a right click on 'My Computer' and click on 'manage'.

    6.Then you go to 'Device Manager'.

    7.Then you expand the option 'Universal Serial Bus Driver'.

    8.There you double click on any one of the driver.

    9.There you go to the 'Driver' tab and click on 'Upgrade Driver'.

    Have a nice day...................

    You brought up that a USB push is definitely appearing peculiar it means it is receiving associated in some cases and also lapsing with other.
    Perhaps there exists some kind of negligence with your USB connector. You can consider washing the US port with a dry thoroughly clean nice looking cloth.
    Don't utilize just about any sloppy and also wet part of cloth. Nevertheless My business is fearful it get worse in case done manually.
    If this type of as well does not help, I recommend anyone to go to the closest support centre.
