Question about Computers & Internet
My friend had that happen to his laptop after something had shorted out in a USB port.
Any additional info would be great, such as things you did with the PC for prior to this problem.

Tips for a great answer:
What makes you think the USB hub took a surge? If the surge
got into your computer the Driver will not fix the interface if the circuit (inside
your computer) got blown out.
It does not hurt to try the driver, you can download
the driver from IBM directly. Here is the link;

Remember the help below is only a fix for seeing the error message not for overdrawing the port.
To stop overdrawing the port you need to either use a power supply or a double USB cable.
To prevent seeing the USB Power Surge alert message, complete the following steps:
Click on START, Click on CONTROL PANEL, Double-click on the SYSTEM icon, Click on the HARDWARE tab, Click the DEVICE MANAGER button, Click the "+" next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand the selection.,Right-click and select PROPERTIES on the Intel® USB UNIVERSAL HOST CONTROLLER (not the USB Root Hub),Click the ADVANCED Tab, Check the box that says: "Don't tell me about USB errors"

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.
you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any further assistance on this issue.
I'll be glad to help you.
