    usually when it says insufficient memory, it means the desktop manager is not installed. that needs to be installed for your bb to properly charge, in your case, im not sure why your laptop changed its mind and decided now its ok to charge it.

    He didn't say insufficient memory.

    Some computers do not produce the proper voltage to properly charge your BB. It will still charge it, but it might take longer, or not give you as "clean" a charge as plugging it into the wall. I don't think it will actually hurt your device to charge it that way, but to be on the safe side I'd use the wall adapter for charging.

    regular usb does not originally exude enough power to charge your bberry

    installing the desktop manager and the proper usb drivers will solve this problem

    More technically, USB only provides 100mA of power without the device requesting more. If the device requests higher-power, it can get upto 500mA. Not being certain on the BB specifics, that might mean that the host did not allow for the device to go into high-power mode (as in the case of unpowered hubs). It could be that the hub can't supply the higher power or you don't have the drivers installed.
