What OS are you using? What's your computer model? What cable are you using to connect it? Give us something to work with. – gronostaj Aug 30 '13 at 8:42
Window 7 Pro on a Dell Latitude E6410 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 32-bit Operating System. And I don't know cables, but it's the one with the blue plug. – user249913 Aug 31 '13 at 10:49
