Question about Sony VAIO FRV37 Notebook
When I bought my pcg-frv37, it was advertised as having 3 usb2.0 ports. The VIA Universal Host Controller listed in the device manager is not capable of USB2.0. The correct driver can't be loaded unless the Host controller is listed correctly in the BIOS. The BIOS can't be changed on this particular model. Has anyone figured out how to change the BIOS, driver description in the Device Manager and successfully loaded the correct driver for USB2.0? It's my understanding that the rights to USB2.0 were being bought by microsoft at the time and all these laptops were delivered without the correct description in Device Manager or the correct driver. I have windows XP.
Try getting a update of windows or install the xp sp3 this might solve your problem anotherway is to uninstall teh usb port by entering the device manager and see if the correct drivers load at this point because if the driver are still not loading then the ports may not be USB 2.0

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:

Close Device Manager.
