Power Surge on Hub Port, Windows XP SP2

I'm receiving the following error message when i connect a mouse to any of the USB ports on a HP Compaq nc6120 laptop running XP SP2.

"Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port."

I've checked the Microsoft Help & Support page and along with other forums but can't find any answer.

I know that the error notifications can be prevented from displaying but i was wondering if anyone knew of a solution that would stop the error from happening.

Are you sure the mouse is OK? Does it happen with all mice or just one?

I've used the mouse on other machines so i know theres no problems with that.

Although we get the USB error on the nc6120 laptop the mouse does still work.
