You'll want to confirm if there is, then determine where.Do you have a multimeter? I'd start by checking the actual usb voltage, if it's a desktop you can probably get at a header on the motherboard to check this, if it's a laptop you might need to sacrifice a usb cable to get at the power lines.If that was high and it was a desktop I'd check the 5-volt line on one of the molex connectors to see if it's reading high. If so, swap the PSU.If the USB voltage was reading high and it's a laptop or the PSU reading looked ok, then I think you might be out of luck as it would point to the power regulation on the motherboard being knackered. Although some laptops do have separate power boards off the motherboard that might be replaceable.
