    I have the same problem. I saw the solution from jmassengill, but I don't agree that R40 has USB 1.1. The specs tell it has 2.0. So, the problem is still unresolved.

On some laptops that are older (an IBM R40 is a bit older) there are no high speed usb ports but if you plug in a usb device that is USB 2.0 into a usb port that is not high speed, the operating system (Sounds like Windows XP) will display that message even though you don't have a high speed usb controller. The USB device will still work but at a slower speed. You can ignore this message without a problem

USB Port can preform faster error message


This is because you are plugging in a USB 2 device to a standard USB port, or a USB 3 device into a USB 2 port. The computer is just telling you that if you upgrade the hardware, the device will work faster. Its more of an information message than an error. Your device should still function fine.

What is the version of the usb port on a compaq presario 1200


Hi again, after extensively searching I believe your Laptop has a USB version 2.0.

Most PC's manufactured before 2001 were USB 1.0 and USB 1.1.

The Spec Guides for your PC indicate 2002 was the year of manufacture.

USB 2.0 is a faster USB connection than version 1.0 or 1.1. You might have trouble connecting devices that are USB 2.0 (which all new devices are now - since 2001).

To double check, use your Device Manager on the PC to look up the USB device and see what is written.

If you are using XP then do the following:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. In the Control Panel double-click the Systems icon.
  5. In the System Properties window click the Hardware tab.
  6. In the Hardware tab click the Device Manager button and you will see a list of devices.
  7. Click the + button next to the word the Universal Serial Bus controllers.
If it is USB 2.0 then it should say something like USB Enhanced or USB High Speed, this means it is USB 2.0 compatible.

I hope this helps. Please rate. Regards,

My Panasonic CF-74 doesn't seem to be detecting anything I am plugging into the USB ports or the COM port.


Some motherboard BIOS's allow you to specify how many USB ports you want enabled
go to your Control Panel, System, Device Manager.

go down to where it says Universal Serial Bus Controllers, click the + sign,
you will see a list of devices, probably something like this
via rev5 usb host controller
via rev5 usb host controller
usb printing support
usb mass storage controller
usb root hub
usb root hub

right click on the ones that say via or intel or SIS, or ALI, or Standard open host controller, and choose uninstall.

you will be asked if your sure, and you will see some of the USB root hubs disappear.

If you are asked to restart, choose no, and remove the other via/sis/intel/etc open host controller (s) from your system, when they have all been removed restart your computer.

when the computer restarts, it will detect the USB controller and connected devices, reinstall the drivers/software

Hi,
are you using windows xp sp2, this issue normally occurs with it
a fast fix is:
go to start menu> run > type in devmgmt.msc > ok

1) Device Manager will open

2) Locate "Universal Serial Bus controllers" in the list and expand

3) Select the first USB Universal Host Controller.

4) Right click and select "Properties"

5) Go to the "Advanced" tab

6) Check "Don't tell me about USB errors"

7) Click "OK"

Note. If you have multiple host controllers then they should all be affected by the above action.

8) Close Device Manager

further Queries are welcome

USB ports work at 1.1; s/b 2.0


Your computer is functioning correctly.
The USB ports on your laptop are USB1 ports its pard of the hardware.
Your PCMCIA USB 2 card runs at USB 2 speed and therefore when you connect a USB 2 device to this port you will not get this USB message.

Power Surge error message


Hello,

 

 

I guess that this could be your error message:

"Error message when you wake up a Windows XP-based computer from hibernation or from standby: "Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port"

 

If it is the case, please try below solution:

 

SYMPTOMS

 

When you wake up a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer from hibernation or from standby, you may receive the following error message:

 

Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port. This error message is displayed even if there are no USB devices connected to the computer.   WORKAROUND loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); To work around this issue, disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller.

Note When you disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, you lose USB 2.0 functionality. That is, you revert to USB 1.1 functionality.

To disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, follow these steps: 1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager. 3. In the Device Manager pane, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. 4. Right-click the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, and then click Disable.

Note The name of the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller may vary. 5. When you receive the confirmation message, click Yes. 6.

Close Device Manager.

 

 

I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

 

 

Please let me know the result. 

 

you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com for any further assistance on this issue.

 

I'll be glad to help you.
