Hi. 2 of my USB ports keep telling me there's a power surge whenever I try to hook anything up to them, even keyboard and mouse. What would cause this?? It's an older PC (2002), and it's a Gateway 500X. Thanks.
I've heard of this... it could mean you have to many USB devices drawing to much current through your USB bus, or if you have nothing else plugged into the USB ports then the USB ports themselves are going out.
Wouldn't hurt to try the mouse/keyboard in a different computer just to rule them out though.
