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.

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.
