Well, I think its something else now? I have a 4gb flash drive and it also gives me a power surge alert. What would make the 4 usb ports built in to the motherboard not have enough power? For a flash drive. I unhooked everything but the DVD,CD, hard drive and mother board. I even took out my graphix card. Is there a fuse or a switch in the M.B. or power supply that could be doing it? My power supply is on the 115 setting and not the 230. The PC wont turn on when set to 230. Maybe my power supply is have burned out?
Hello, I have an(E.H.D) external hard drive enclosure and when I plug it(into the back) in I get an alert. Power surge on usb port. It will not recognize it and does not show up on my pc anywhere. This use to work fine on this computer? The hard drive works fine on my other computer. I have 6 usb ports 4 in back connected to the M.B, and 2 in front. When I plug the E.H.D. into the front it does not power surge and shows up in the device manager as a mass storage unit. It also says that there is no driver installed. The driver for this is built in so I cant install it, besides it works on my other computer. I can not access the E.H.D at all. It should show up as a 40gb hard disk right below my local hard drive when you go to "my computer". The computer and all six usb ports seem to be working normally except when It come to the E.H.D???
I think it might be the ---motherboard,power supply, a setting,
Got any ideas?
