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.
Please let me know the result.
