Unexpected power surge on the USB port error message


New Member
Hi everyone, currently running an SP3 that is throwing this error. It boots up fine, and then starts throwing this error. I’ve reinstalled the USB controller/drivers, which makes me think there’s a physical problem with the port or connection. I tried checking with Microsoft but they won’t take it in for repair (in fact, their site pretty much says “we’d be happy to help you upgrade”). Is there anyone out there who isn’t too pricy who is equipped to do a USB port replacement like this?
