Windows Surface Pro1 Not enough USB Resources

I am using my Surface Pro 1 with Windows 8.1.
I have a USB3 powered HUB by Sabrent(10 USB3 ports).
My Surface is plugged into that.
I have 5 monitors, an external SSD hard drive connected to it.
One of the ports, I have another USB3 powered HUB, this one allows a Ethernet port to be connected to it.  That is how I get my internet service, I do not like WiFi while at home.  The HUB is from PLUGGABLE.
On that home I have a thumbdrive connected to it.

I am trying to plug my BeagleBone Black to it but I get an error message that not enough USB resources.  If I connect it directly to mu Suface I can use it.
If I plug in into any of the two HUBs, I get the error message of not enough USB resources.
I have scoured the internet for clues on how to resolve this but to no avail.

Any one knows a fix for this?

probably because you can only get a certain amount of power from a usb port and you just have too many things connected

I have two different usb3 powered hubs. They have there own power supply.
The device powers on i just can not access it because it says not enough resources.

Some devices just need to be connected directly, without having hubs in between.

Rindi, it appears you are correct.
Some devices must be connected directly.
I experimented by connecting other USB3 devices and they were able to connect successfully.
I take it then that my beaglebone black I must not use via USB.
I decided to use Ethernet to communicate with it instead.
I then used a separate USB hub off the network only simply to power it up.

Thanks for your solution.
