Question about Dell Dimension 4700C PC Desktop
I keep on getting a tab that says there is a "power surge on hub port" and it is causing my computer to run slowly. the message reads "a usb device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port. forassistence with this problem click this message".... then when i click the message it reads "the usb device has malfunctioned and exceeds the power limits of its ub port. you should disconnect the device." i don't know which hub it is referring to/ or it's location (it is the fourth one on the list), since there are only two hubs being used total. one hub, the sixth on the list is for a wireless g 'usb adapter, and the one that is in bold is the fourth one and is called "and unknown usb device". can't get the message to disappear.
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.
