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.

When we turn the printer on the menu window just flashes and we can't see the menu. can't do anything other than print.


Seems as though the menu needs to be reset. Unplug printer and then replug after 20+ seconds. If problem persists, reinstall the print driver from the Device Manager. In Windows 7 you would go to Start, Devices and Printers, right click mouse to reveal drop down menu, select remove device. Now, unplug your printer's USB cable and turn off your computer. Wait the 20+ seconds. Turn on computer. After fully loaded, turn on printer and plug in its USB cable. Computer should conduct "plug & play" search for printer driver and reinstall the printer. Hope this solves your problem.

Windows XP Professional, can't log in, try to type


Which model of laptop ?

Nearly every device in your computer system can be turned off and on by accessing the Windows Device Manager with a few clicks of the mouse. It gives you plenty of flexibility and allows you to customize your computer on a whim. The Device Manager will allow you to enable your factory keyboard and mouse and disable your current ones, effectively resetting them to the default settings

Make sure that your default mouse and keyboard are plugged into your computer. Click on the Windows "Start" button in the lower right corner of your desktop. Type "Device Manager" in the "Start Search" box. Click "Device Manager" under "Programs." Click "Continue" if the Windows permission window pops up. Click the "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the default mouse and click "Enable." Switch to your default mouse then right-click your other mouse and click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the warning popup window. Unplug the other mouse. Press the "+" next to "Keyboards." Right-click your default keyboard and click "Properties." Click the "Driver" tab then click "Enable." Click "OK." Right-click your other keyboard and select "Properties." Click the driver tab then click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the permission window then click "OK." Your computer is reset to the default keyboard and mouse.

I put in new batteries ! how do I reboot it


You can unplug the usb cable and replug it on the computer(the one for the keyboard and mouse) if that does not do the trick. On the wireless broadcaster there is a connect button to sync up the keyboard and mouse, press it (some models need it to be pressed for 3-5 secs) then press the same buttons under the keyboard and mouse. This should sync the mouse and keyboard and you are on your way!

Wireless mouse stopped working.


Unplug the wireless receiver from the back of the computer. Wait 10 seconds and replug back in. Check connectivity. If nothing then check batteries in mouse, if still nothing try click the Connect button on the wireless receiever and then underneath the keyboard...repaet the process for the mouse. You should get something on the screen stating the channel 1 is for the keyboard and channel 2 is for the mouse. Hope this helps! - Erick :-)

Scorpius K3NT USB Keyboard prevents resume after standby in Win2K


When entering standby, the usb ports go to sleep. Most motherboards allow you to tell the bios that you are using a usb keyboard. That should solve the problem. I keep an old ps2 keyboard plugged in and on the floor as a 'just in case'.
