# Power surge on hub when using NooElec nesdr mini

I'm trying to set up sdrSharp on my PC using a NooElec nesdr mini for the receiver. I've read a bunch of setup instructions which all suggest using Zadig to install the usb drivers for the receiver.

However, whenever I plug the nesdr into my usb port I receive an error Power Surge on Hub after which my computer disconnects the port which means I can't install the drivers for that device.

Has anyone run into this? Any suggestions?
