USB device exceeds power surge

Specs: Windows XP
I had a power surge on my computer and had to replace the power supply. Now I have an error message:

Power Surge on Hub Port
USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port.

I can not plug a printer or wireless mouse into these front USB ports. Do I need to replace the front USB ports?

I have a six year old Dell desktop which is mainly a back up to my newer laptop.

It could be that your PS is not up to par. I don't know which way I'd go. Maybe I'd return the PS for a much better model.

To be sure I'd make sure the usb devices are not burned out too.

Guess you could have bumped something or a plug is off a bit.

Lastly there would be no easy way to test the board.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
