I have a Macbook Pro 2.16GHz intel core 2 duo, GB 667 MHz RAM and have recently just tried to put a powered USB hub into my left USB port and a pop up window came up saying

"USB over current notice" - The USB device is currently drawing too much power. The port it's attached to will be deactivated".

This port no longer works with any USB device and all devices work on the other USB port. Could anyone tell me how to resolve this problem?

Apparently it cost around 32 exc VAT to fix if its your left board but if its your main board then apparently its very expensive.
