"USB device drawing too much power" error on startup with no devices
"USB device drawing too much power" error on startup with no devices connected.
dear all, I've been doing some upgrades to a Mac Mini Model A1176. During the process I accidentally cooked the sound card but have replaced it and have sound working again. However I believe this accident has damaged something else on the Mini as I now get the above error every time on startup. This is irrespective of whichever OS i have installed; i.e. Snow Leopard, Lion etc. It also happens when no USB devices are plugged in. So I've got a feeling there's something wrong with the USB Bus, possibly due to the previous accident. I'm in the process of replacing the Interconnect board & hope this might fix things.
Has anyone had this problem and found a resolve or correctly diagnosed the cause?
best regards, SCH
Is this a good question?
