Question about Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook
I keep getting this error regarding my usb port: "A USB device has malfunctioned and exceeded the power limits of its hub port." Problem is that I have nothing in the port. The error message pops up every 15 seconds or so - very annoying. How do I fix this problem???
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

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:
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.
Close Device Manager.
I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.
Please let me know the result.
