Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
I repeatedly get the message "Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB device has malfunctioned and exceeded the power limits of its hub port. You should disconnect the device." This is despite the fact that no device is plugged in. It doesn't seem to affect the functionality of the computer as far as I can tell but it is still concerning. Any advice on how to address this?
Once the USB port(s) are disabled what is the repair to bring back USB 2.0 functionality?
Right click START ,choose properties,choose taskbar then customize ,and select power surge...and select ALWAYS HIDE
this way you get rid of the pop-up message and just don't worry about it
This is just some error with microsoft and it shouldn't be a big deal at all.
Let me know if you want further information on this, thanks

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.
