I am running a brand new Lenovo Desktop

Model 90EDZ1DQUS

Win 10 Home 64Bit

Intel Core i5 6400 @2.70 GH





Sometimes, when booting up, I get the message.


Power Surge on USB Port

An unknown USB device needs more power than the port can supply.


The problem it that there are only two devices plugged into USB ports.

One is my printer that is not turned on.

The other is the brand new keyboard that came with this computer.

They are both plugged into a group of four USB ports in the rear of my rig.

How could this be overloading anything?

I did a search online, and this seems to be a common problem,.

After coming up several times at boot up the message goes away and the computer runs fine.

Any ideas on how to deal with this message?
