Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of it's Hub port

This started popping up when I put the computer in Standby. So I clicked unplugged/replugged and reset. Now the keyboard, mouse and printer won't work? I just had the motherboard replaced so I downloaded new drives for all. The printer still does not print. I used the trouble shooting and followed all directions even checking the firewall. The printer still does not work. The new message I get is Printer designed to work with USB cables only. The current software and setting is not set to USB port. Does this mean I should go purchase a new cable?

Make and model number would help me. The voltage output of USB ports is +5 VDC. "Standby" on a computer is a is a power saving feature that is really only needed for Laptops.

If this IS a laptop: try unplugging it, remove the battery and press the power button to drain residual voltage from the system. Do the same thing with your printer and any other USB peripheral devices.

If it is a Desktop, unplug the power cord that is plugged into the wall ie kill the power to everything and do as described above.

If this doesn't work, some damage may have occurred to one of the peripherals or the system itself due to the voltage drop.

A workaround after all the above fails to resolve the issue is to purchase an inexpensive USB pci card and install it into one of the open pci slots inside your computer. For a laptop, plug in cards are available but you need to check the specs before purchasing.

Hope this helps.
Bill

SOURCE: a usb has exceeded the power limits of its hub port

Simply put its what it says.

you have too many devices drawing power from the USB ports of your laptop.

A fix for this is to use a USB hub but it MUST be one with its own power supply.

If you are using a usb hub it could be the problem; try disconnecting the hub. Try to plug the pen drive into a usb port on the pc not on a hub. If the usb hub has a separate power supply make sure it is working. Hope I was of some help, Thanks for using FixYa

My PC shows that my printer is offline when it is not, and the option to "scan to image" is no longer on the scan menu on the device.


This means that the computer cannot communicate with the printer. Try a new data cable and plugging the unit into a different port (USB). Make sure the port works with a known working device.

USB ports can be disabled for security and power savings. Legacy ports (parallel or serial) are not always enabled on the few boards that have them.

If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

Ps2 port doesn't recognize Microsoft Optical mouse


You might think about a USB hub for all your USB devices. ps2 port is more or less dedicated for mouse, which is why your mouse pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen. Go ahead and get an externally powered USB Hub to power other USB devices. To answer, ps2 for mouse needs just a mouse, not USB device.
