I have built a PC for a friend, it is happly running XP Pro with SP2. Intermittently an error is comming up, as follows... The error which pops up every other attempt is: POWER SURGE ON HUB PORT A USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message.
This leads to a window that shows an unknown USB device which can be highlighted and then reset or a close option. The note says if you click close the port will cease to operate. I've tried both options several times. There is nothing plugged into any! USB ports.
No - its not something connected to a USB port - its a use port connected to the Front USB connections on the motherboard that can be causeong the problem. This is a set of nine prongs onto which you slot individual wires from your USB connection. If this is miswired, the report you are receiving can occur.
