ASUS USB Device Over Current Status

Last response: in Motherboards

Hi folks,

I am having a problem with my ASUS P7P55D mobo. Suddenly as of yesterday, I get the error "USB Device Over Current Status detected, will shut down in 15 seconds." Then the PC shuts down.

Some time back we broke a USB device in the front panel. I hadn't seen any problems since then, but it's the only thing I can think of that might have caused this.

I tried unplugging all devices but the keyboard and still get the error.

I have done a lot of searching on this forum about this, and there are a bunch of threads about this topic, like this one:

Following the advice in that thread, I tried to disconnect the USB ports connected to the front panel, but now it just hangs on the BIOS screen. However, I am not at all convinced that I unplugged the correct things. I looked for USB cables that appeared to be coming from the front panel. There were two, and I disconnected them.

If it was USB 2 then it would be a 8 pin connector w/ 7 pins

Thanks very much for your feedback!

Upon further review, it does seem to me that I unplugged the correct USB cables. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I could continue to troubleshoot this issue?

Short of replacing my motherboard, I seem to be at an impasse.
