    I got this popup in Windows that looks like this:

    It comes up when I plug in my headphones or anything else on my computer. This errors will sometimes cause my mouse and keyboard to go out, forcing me to manually restart my computer to get it back. :wtc:

    I just bought a new power supply today (480W, was 350W) because I thought that might be the problem, but it's still happening.

    Anyone have any idea? :noes:

    the USB bus has a limited current draw, and you're exceeding it. Purchasing a "powered hub" may solve the problem.
