Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me with an issue i'm facing with my laptop. When I connect my laptop to an HDMI cable (using HDMI to Type C converter in the type C port on my laptop) and connect the other end to my TV/other device I get an error message on my laptop saying there is "power surge on the USB port - unknown usb device needs more power than the port can supply". Then, even after I remove the device, this message pops up repeatedly until I restart my whole laptop. I'm quite concerned by this issue as it seems to have started suddenly. I have connected my laptop to my TV (for movies etc) many times in the past and this has never happened. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
