Hi I recently posted on tkms hardware regarding my psu or mobo being broken. Ive since installed a 750 watt psu and used my computer without a hitch.

But today after trying to boot I receive a bios screen that tells me "USB Device Over Current Status Detected!! System will shut down after 15 second.
A: it doesnt im currently typing this on my phone and the screen and computer has been on for like 5 minutes.

B; I have disconnected all usb devices, alternated one by one etc with seperate boots. And no solution. There was one time when I put one usb device in at a time it booted. I have been unable to produce the resupt a second time.


C; as I said my psu is new. Im asking toms hardware as a last ditch effort before I spend money on someone at NCIX to fix my computer. Im really frustrated. And my patience is wearing thin. As much ad id like to fix it myself. I dont know what im doing and I literally cannot afford another mistake or unesscessary part.

Thanks any and all replies appreciated.

Two things to try. One check your mb bios to see if he vendor dropped any patches. I seen a few for gaming keyboards and mice. The second is look at your front and rear USB ports with a flashlight. You could have had a bad USB device that bent the USB header pins together. If it not a bent pin try unplugging the case USB header. On the read USB ports check that the io shield fingers not shorting out the USB port or mb.
