Screen Shot 2013-06-28 at 22.40.56.pngHi All.

 

When I logged on to my computer this evening and I was on skype, I clicked on a link to view something and this popped up on my screen.

 

I don't have any USB devices plugged in to my computer. So what is this and why is it showing? Any Idea anyone? and what should I do about it?

 

Thanks.

Tricia

    Hello Tricia,

     

    If you have no USB devices connected, not even a keyboard or mouse then the only thing left connected to USB is your internal iSight camera, which may have been called on by Skype when you clicked a link. Restart your Mac and open the Photo Booth app to see if the camera works ok and gives no similar warnings.

    You probably need a powered USB hub to support the unpowered USB devices connnected to your iMac. These devices can be things like cameras, printers, etc...
