L220x usb problems

Have the Lenovo L220x 22" monitor. None of the usb ports seem to work - any device, including flash drives, plugged into the monitor isb ports are not recognized. The devices work when plugged into the CPU ports. OS is Vista. Can anyone point me to a solution? Thanks.

Re: L220x usb problems

do you have a USB A:B cable connecting your computer to the hub of the display?

Re: L220x usb problems

ahh, that explains it.   connect the A:B cable from the display (the one next to the VGA connector) to your computer and your hub will work.
