Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hello everyone, in the past few months I have continued to get messages saying that the maximum amount of power has been delivered and to unplug a usb device, and the red dots start blinking on the controller but then I get control again.
Since then, the battery has been slowly dying even though I always have the controller plugged in, and now the controller doesn't work at all any more, when I first turn on the system the controller starts to charge but after a few seconds it stops and says the battery is low, then it dies.
Can anyone help me with this problem? I have never stepped on or thrown the controller.
Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw .
You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar
to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to
your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you
did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and
you should be OK.
Grabbed this from Kaivarri. Thx!

Tips for a great answer:
This is how I got it to work:
1. Put batteries in it (obviously)
2. Have everything powered down.
3. Put the USB Receiver into the front USB port.
4. Turn on the PS3, let it boot to the desktop/XMB/whatever.
5. Turn on the controller.
6. Hold down the "Home" button (the one that should the the one with the PS symbol on it) for a few seconds
7. Hold down the "Sync" button for a few seconds.
I believe that's how I did it. The manual seemed to offer fairly vague directions on syncing it. If you did it right, the LED on the top of the controller should be lit, letting you know what player slot it is assigned to.
Let me know how it goes.

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.
