Usb power surge

I keep getting the message one of the usb ports has malfunctioned and has exceeded its power limits or something like that. Ive never had a problem up until the past few days and now my usb ports on the top front of my case wont operate unless I reboot. Once i reboot they are fine for a short time; but then the same thing happens all over again. Now, even as much as a computer guy as i am ; this one has me stumped. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling the usb hubs, etc and that has done nothing. What should i do here?

nevermind; solved my own problem. It appears I have a bad sync cable for my iphone. And that seems to have been causing the issue for some reason.
