Lenovo z580 usb power surge

2012-12-23, 15:25 PM

Greetings all. Today when I was casually watching youtube videos, a message appeared on my hotbar which says: 

"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"

 

So I click on the message and reset the ports but that doesn't fix it....can anyone help? More importantly, will I have to send it in to lenovo to get a new motherboard?

 

Cheers

Was it an usb 3 or usb 2 port and i suppose you have restarted your notebook and you still have a problem.

have you tried re-runing the usb 3.0 drivers from your d drives driver backup if you have one or download , it will uninstall the drivers, then reboot and try and install them again.

It looks like the fan may have damaged your usb port.
