Usb ports do not active

\015 My laptop ,Acer travelmate 290E cannot support USB. When I plug in USB ,it shows "power surge on huport .A USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hubport .\015

Answers :

One of the great features of USB devices is they can get power from the USB port. Plug in a thumb drive and it just works. The power for operating the thumb drive comes from the USB port. This works for small devices like a thumb drive but not something big like a scanner. The scanner need its own power supply.
\015\012There could be several explinations for what you are seeing. Could be you are plugging in a device which is sucking too much power and the laptop is shutting it down. I would test the port with something small like a thumb drive and see if it works. If the thumb drive works but the other device does not a couple of things could be going on. Maybe the device just need power - is there a way to plug in a power supply? Or maybe the device is broken and shorted out. Does the device work on another computer?
\015\012If something like a thumb drive does not work then it is a problem with the motherboard. Could be the USB ports are bad. It happens and there usually is no easy fix short or replacing the motherboard ($$$). Occasionally there is a BIOS setting for the USB ports. A bit of a long shot but worth a look.
\015\012A possible work around would be to get a power USB hub. A hub plugs into a USB port and provides 4 or 7 USB ports. Good ones come with a power supply. When the hub is plugged into the power supply it does not draw power from the computer. Might solve your problem.
\015\012Good luck!

My Dell PowerEdge 2500 has 2 configurable com ports which are setup as Com1 IRQ-4, and Com2 IRQ-3. My problem is that everything seems to say that they are there and active, but my software only can talk to the Com2 port. I have (2) USB ports, but don't want to try to use an RS-232 to USB converter to see if I can use my software on those ports. I need access to both Com1 and Com2 at the same time. Any ideas?
