Hello Vikask
Happy Holidays
Depending on your PC arquitecture, year etc, sometimes, this message can be seen from different ways, 1) you have a 1.0 USB ports, that Not support 2.0 devices, like 2.0 complaint flash drives. 2) the USB device you try to connect is 2.0 USB complaint. or some PCs, have 1.0 usb ports at back others have the 2 flavors, 2.0 and 1.0, so you put the device where the message won't come out.
3) You also check if in your BIOS is ENABLE the USB funtions.
and drivers are the right for the USB device you try to install.

This usually happens when you plug a 2.0 usb device into a 1.0 device. If your appliance works then i wouldn't worry about it but if you have older technology then it may be time to upgrade

Usb wont work in 2.0

Go into device manager and look at your Universal Controller Bus (USB). Make sure you don't have any that has a Question Mark or Exclamation Point on them. It looks like somewhere you don't have the correct drivers. Are you sure your USB Ports are 2.0?

My computer tells me that if my wireless adaptor was plugged into a different USB root hub it would work faster. How is this done?

Try plugging the wireless adapter into one of the usb slots on the back of the computer. If it still shows that message, I wouldn't worry. The difference in speed is negligible at best. hope this helps

Need high speed usb driver

Unfortunately, being that you are using USB 1.1 ports, the high speed 2.0 devices cannot be used. They look the same, but are different hardwares. Even if you hook up a USB 2.0 hub to the USB 1.1 port, you are still stuck with USB 1.1 speed.

Sorry to break the bad news. Let me know if there are any more questions regarding this issue.

Anytime I plug something in to the USB port it give a error message that states, Power Surge on the USB port. What can I do to fix this?

The USB device could be drawing more current than the USB port can supply or the USB port may be faulty.
Get a powered USB hub and plug it into your computer's USB port and then plug the USB devices into the powered USB hub.

If you have a USB port on the back of computer plug it in there. Or use USB extension if it is uneasy for you to plug your pen drive from time to time. From there you can hook up your pen drive much easy.

Power surge on hub port

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.

Location of USB Root Hub

Hi dottyo,

Generally the front USB ports on a computer are USB version 1.1, good for USB keyboard and mouse or printer.

But, almost always the USB ports on the back of the pc are USB version 2.0 which is what you are looking for. Try any ports on the back of the pc case.

Hope that helps!
