I plug in my naga mouse into a USB port on my motherboard(Asus Z97-A) and it says "A USB device has exceeded the power limit of its hub port." I don't know why it says that. Anyway I can fix this???

Probably means your Naga mouse is a bit of a power hog it must use more than 150mA or 500mA. The USB spec allows board makers to deliver different levels of power through the port with a minimum of 150mA or 500mA for USB 1.0 or 2.0, 900mA for USB 3.0, and 2A for USB 3.1 and so called "Power Delivery" ports.

EDIT: Made a correction (again)

Have you tried another usb port? The blue ones should be the most powerful at least at being able to supply power. Otherwise it is likely an issue with the mouse itself. Of course it could be the motherboard or even the PSU but not as likely.

Tried the blue USB slots and same thing. Shouldn't be the motherboard or psu they are brand new as well. Asus Z97-A motherboard and EVGA Supernova NEX650G.

On another note it does the same thing on my Alienware M14x R2 Laptop.

That kind of leaves it down to an issue with the mouse if it is still under warranty I would contact Razer about it and have them replace it for you considering how much those mice cost.
