    and it's been a week or so that i'm getting this message:
    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.

    when i click the message i get another message which i attached to this post.
    now, there's no device connected to a usb port on my pc which makes the whole thing ever more weird. also, i don't remember something special that i did prior to this problem.

    Looks like something is bad then.. Maybe the USB controller or the wiring for the front panel USB connections.

    Are you sure you have no actual USB devices? Things like memory card readers are somethimes wired to USB inside the computer.

    I'm not sure because I don't understand too much about this. Is there a way I can find out? The front usb ports are not connected to the motherboard and they don't work.
