    Hi all,

    When I would check out 'USB Root Hub' in Device Manager, there would be a 'Power' tab that would list the name of the connected device and how much power it was drawing. Somehow, that particular tab has 'gone the way of the dodo,' and does not appear. Currently, the only tabs I see are General, Driver, Details and Power Management. It would be appreciated if anyone can assist in getting that tab back.

    I am currently using XP Pro SP2.

    Cheers,
    Mike T.

    Hi ozrom1e,

    Thanks for responding to my post.

    Removing the 'USB Root Hub' entries (4 in my case) in Device Manager and rebooting did the trick. Simple and elegant...

    Thanks again! (y)

    Cheers,
    Mike T.
