Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
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?
I have desktop and its prompting me usb power limit exceed how to solve this problum

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.

I have no usb plugged in still I get this error and plus my laptop freezes after a while. I assume this is the problem. If I fix this the laptop should work again fine.

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.

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.
