SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • On a computer that is running Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008, you connect a USB device to a USB port.
  • An overcurrent condition occurs on the USB device.
In this scenario, you do not receive a notification. Additionally, the port does not automatically recover from this overcurrent condition. Instead, the USB device becomes unresponsive until you restart the computer. This symptom remains even after you disconnect and then reconnect the USB device.

Note An overcurrent condition occurs on an electrical circuit when devices that are connected to a computer draw too much power from the USB port. An overcurrent condition may occur when the USB wiring is crossed up (short-circuited). This condition may also occur when too many devices are connected to the same hub. (This overloads the hub.)

RESOLUTION

After you apply this hotfix, devices can automatically recover from overcurrent conditions.

Note Even after you apply this hotfix, you still do not receive overcurrent notifications.
