Question

Viewsonic VP950b and USB ports

I have a Viewsonic VP950b and it has two USB ports attached to the monitor. There are no instructions in the User's Guide or anywhere else abouy using these USB ports that I can find. If I plug something into one of these ports, nothing happens under Windows Vista or Windows 7. Furthermore under Device Manager I can find nothing listed as to these two USB ports.

Does anyone know what has to be done to get these ports to be operable ?

It is nice to know it is a 4-port USB hub. But if I plug in a USB device, nothing happens. It does not show up under Windows and the device I plug in does not work.

You may have forgot the cable from the PC to the hub.
