CHECK THE RATING ON YOUR POWER SUPPLY BECAUSE SOME LAPTOPS WILL REGISTER THE POWER CONNECTION PORT AS A USB PORT AND IF YOUR POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE IS TO HIGH FOR THE COMPUTER IT WILL REGISTER IT AS SUCH, "HUB-PORT" IS SHORT FOR MAINBOARD PORT ON SOME DELLS. UNPLUG YOUR POWER SUPPLY AND CHECK THE RATING ON IT COMPARED TO THE DELLS INPUT VOLTAGE, THE INFORMATION IS NEXT TO YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS AND LABELS ON BOTH PEICES KEEP ME POSTED... JON-T

Apple mobile device usb drivers has malfunctioned and exceed the power limits of its hub port.


Ewwwwwww... no fun.

You should try a "POWERED"

4 Port USB 3.0 Hub It's important that it's a "POWERED HUB" because you need the HUB to supply it's OWN power and not depend on your Apple E to provide power to your connected USB devices!

The good news is they don't cost much: $8 on eBay
Auction: 202096902632
Note that they include the power supply! Many other HUBS don't.

Your HUB is even LESS if you pick on the USB 2.0. Version, AND YES, each HUB MUST have it's own power supply and that's just what YOU need.

The ONE thing I didn't like about this HUB is the LED lights that are provided for each port! They are TOO bright so I opened it up and plucked all but one LED out. I also bought the 8 and 10 Port HUB versions and 'fixed' them too.

I also didn't need the switches to confuse things (accidentally turn one or more ports OFF)... so my trusty hot glue gun fixed that! All are constant ON now.

Using a different USB port might solve the problem, turn the phone off completely and plug the phone in after doing so turn the phone on if the same problem persists then contact the phone manufacturer and ask if its a common fault

A usb has exceeded the power limits of its hub port


Simply put its what it says.

you have too many devices drawing power from the USB ports of your laptop.

A fix for this is to use a USB hub but it MUST be one with its own power supply.

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.

If your using a USB hub, unplug another device (i.e printer or scanner, fax, etc.). Plug in your One Touch. Then turn off your pc and turn it back on. This should work.
If you use a alot of USB devices, you may need to get a USB Power Hub.
You can try an plug in the One Touch straight to the pc and unpluging all other usb device except the keyboard and mouse.
Let me know if this helps. You also may need to move the ac power to another outlet.

Hello,

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.

I'll be glad to help you.
