    My computer is on the floor (tower case) and I have mobility issues so sometimes it is hard for me to bend down to plug my headphones into the computer for private listening. I inadvertently touched the USB port with the headphone jack by mistake and it detected a power surge issue, so I disconnected the headphones, selected the reset option instead of close and rebooted. All is well and Device Manager shows no conflicts. I have a Dell Dimension 3000 and it is very difficult to feel those ports with the plug.

    Hi Jack, After reading your post I happened to look at my speakers on my desk and noticed that the actual speaker also has a headphone jack. Maybe that is something you could look into, it would save any bending as the speakers sit on the desk. Easy to see and easy to access. No more accidents. As I said only noticed it after I read your post :)
