Damaged USB Port


Ok I think the best method to "Fix" this would be to get your self a 4 - 5 port USB card, they are, real cheap, insert it into a spare slot, inside your PC, and install the drivers, if any, and use that one. And simply ignore the other one all together.

Greetings....

Please try to check if your USB port both rear and front USB port are not defective. Most common problem of defective usb ports are when plug your usb devices it won't recognize the device you inserted. So to make sure that your USB Ports are not the main cause why your computer won't recognize devices you inserted.

Anytime I plug something in to the USB port it give a error message that states, Power Surge on the USB port. What can I do to fix this?


The USB device could be drawing more current than the USB port can supply or the USB port may be faulty.
Get a powered USB hub and plug it into your computer's USB port and then plug the USB devices into the powered USB hub.

I inserted my memory stick and an icon popped up and I click it since it said overloaded. It gave me an option to reset it, then removable disk is gone. so I can't use my USB now.


Do you have many other items plugged into additional USB ports? You can "overload"power on a USB hub, i would try to leave your memory stick plugeed in, and restart your computer to see what happens. That or unplug other USB devices that may be in use such as scanner, printer, camera, etc. and try it with those unplugged. A longterm solution if this works is to pick up a powered usb hub, you can pick one up online for around 15-20 bucks.

The Media reader is not reading any cards but the indicator light comes on when I insert the cards


Try plugging your media reader into another USB port. If it is plugged into a USB hub, then that is your problem, plug it directly into your computer. Although you should be able to daisy chain USB devices, in actuallity that does not seem to be the case. I have found a lot of devices do not like USB hubs. Also you may want to try another USB cable. These things get corrosion on the contacts and sometimes make poor connections when plugged into the computer and/or devices.

I can't get my Compac Evo N610 to reconize my docking station usb ports what do i do?


I have a solutions that might work, please for the love of god, next time give it as much detail as possible. Navigate to Start>run type:MSCONFIG. Enable everything unless you are absolutely sure you don't need it.
Right click on My Computer, click on properties. Go to the hardware tab at the top, click on device manager to see if there is a conflict.
Try a different port.
Try the hub on a different computer.
If your hub has a power input, now would be the best time to plug it in.
Plug directly into computer.
Make sure the device is plugged in securely, same goes for the devices plugged into it.
If that port is for power only and you plugged it in thinking it would work for data, please don't ask.
Any error messages?
If your computer can boot off a flash drive, Go to bios, test the port and the hub.

Power surge on hub port


Try this to find out which one of your components has an issue. Turn off your machine then unplug all of your USB cables. Turn your machine back on and plug in one of your USB cables. Verify the component you just plugged in works correctly and if it does plug in another cable and verify that component is working. Continue these steps until you have the one component that displays the error you have seen. That component is most likely the cause of your issue and should be replaced.

Good luck, Greased.
