Hi, please help, I have tried everything and I cannot for the life of me figure out what's wrong. So my PC booted a week ago, then I moved it around a little and then tried to boot it up again today. However it went to the American Megatrends screen and it said " USB device over current status detected, Shut down in 15 seconds!". But I do not know what's wrong, I have looked online and people say it is a USB port which has had a bit of metal touch the inside of the port then the USB port grounded. Although I looked at my motherboard and no metal parts were touching the USB ports at all. I have tried another power supply and that didn't work. I have tried booting without a keyboard and mouse or any USB devices yet I still get this message.

Please help, I can't do anything like enter the BIOS or enter the commands it recommends me to do.

Note: I have an ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2.

Please Help :(

Are there any front panel ports connected to headers on the motherboard? Open the case and take a look at those USB connectors, try booting with that unplugged even.

You might be able to stop the message by going into BIOS and disabling the USB controller, though that would obviously make the PC a lot less useful! Have you tried to reset the BIOS by removing the battery and unplugging the power for 30 seconds?
