The USB power problem might be difficult to diagnose and resolve. An option would be to restore your computer using the recovery discs, make sure you backup all your data first as this will format your hard drive and delete everything on it.

Using a wireless mouse with a laptop is a convenient way to
avoid using the laptop's built in mouse.
Moreover, even if you use an external mouse, carrying a
wireless mouse is easier than the wired version.
Here is how to use a wireless mouse with a laptop.
Ensure that your laptop is compatible with a wireless mouse.
Most wireless mice use Bluetooth technology.
Any Bluetooth enabled laptop can connect to a Bluetooth
Unpack your mouse and insert batteries to the battery
While doing so, make sure that the positive side of the
battery is inserted into the positive niche in the compartment.
Place the mouse in a way that makes it easy for you to use
and less stressful for your fingers.
Use a wireless receiver if your laptop does not have an
built in wireless receiver (either Bluetooth or 802.11b).
It should be kept at least eight inches away from the laptop
or any other object that would cause any interference.
Insert the drivers, if any, for the mouse to function
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the
mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop.
If you do not have any free USB ports, simply use an
external USB hub for more ports.
INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.
It sounds like the motherboard is causing the usb ports to malfunction by allowing power surges into the power input to the ports.You maybe should try a powered usb hub to power your hardware or you may face motherboard replacement
Follow these steps : 1. Check to see if your laptop supports wireless technology (Bluetooth, 802.11 or other). If it doesn't, you will need a wireless receiver. If it does, verify that your laptop is compatible with your wireless mouse, which could use either Bluetooth technology or a radio signal.
2. Unpack your mouse and open its battery compartment. The wireless mouse won't receive any power from the laptop, making batteries necessary.
3. Add new batteries to the compartment. Make sure that the + battery end is inserted into the + niche in the compartment.
4. Place the mouse where it is easy to use and least stressful on your fingers.
5. Place your wireless receiver appropriately if your laptop doesn't support wireless technology. The receiver should be kept at least 8 inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.
6. Place the wireless receiver anywhere from 8 inches to 6 feet from the mouse.
7. Insert the driver CD into your laptop and follow the instructions to install the software for running the mouse.
8. Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop. If you do not have a free USB port, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.
Uninstall the SP2, or just mouse over the START menue and right click then chose properties then costumize then find the power surge then thick ALways hide...i beleive there is un update for this but you will need to llok for it as it is bug in windows.
OK if you have anything plugged into the USB Ports at bootup, unless Keyboard or Mouse, remove everything, and see if it boots normally, if it does, then the "Hub" you are using may be faulty, or a device you are using is drawing a lot of current at switch on and overloading the USB bus, that can only supply 500mA. If it still does it, and you do use a USB KB & Mouse, then remove them one at a time & reboot, between, and see if it was one of them causing the problem. If you have nothing attached then your internal USB bus is flaky.
This error occures when a USB device draws more power than the USB port can supply.
To fix this problem, purchase a powered USB hub. Power up the hub and connect it to the laptop's USB port and then plug the USB device into the powered USB hub.
Some USB devices draw excessive power from the USB port, especially USB scanners. When this happens you need a powered USB hub, connect this to your computer's USB port and connect the USB device into the powered USB hub, you should not have any further error power surge problems.
