USB device has exceeded the power limits

Hey, so my mouse stopped working. After couple of minutes so did my keybord and internet. I tried to restart the PC couple of times, it didn't fix anything, but now my PC started to restart itself after 1-5minutes of turning it on. I went to computer repair shop, they said my power supply was messed up and it had to be changed. They changed the power supply, now everything was working except I was getting this "USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port" error upon pluging my mouse in, after I get that error my mouse turns off. I tried the same mouse on my brother's PC and it seems to work without any errors. So is there a way to fix this ?Or the only thing is to change my mouse ? My mouse is Razer Deathadder Chroma if that changes anything.

Thanks for any help.

the hub ports have a power limit of 500mA and a mouse should not be anywhere near that.

try another mouse or plug a powered USB hub into the port and plug your mouse into the powered Hub.
