usb device over current status detected will shutdown in 15 seconds

Ok so today I received all my new PC parts for my build. I set everything up in about 2-3 hours as it was my first build and I ran the test booth. I connected a VGA cable to the motherboard and to the monitor and what appeared was ''usb device over current status detected will shutdown in 15 seconds'. I proceeded to remove every single USB cable from the motherboard but the problem still persisted. I therefore guess it's a problem with the main motherboard usb slots.

Anywho, I then, while still having all the front usb cables unplugged from the motherboard unplugged every single USB device I had., even the VGA cable but the problem still persists. The trick is, sometimes it comes up and sometimes it dosen't. Sometimes it boots me into some menu thing with startup,nas or such since I have no operating system.

I may add that the problem only started when I connected my Keyboard to a USB slot. It wasn't showing me the error before. I own a MSI

    That thread says to disconnect the usb connectors from the motherboard. I've done that several times and no result. In fact, right now I don't even have them plugged in.
  2. From other forum:

    It was just built, however I figured out what the problem was. The metal cutout plating on the back of the case that covers the ports for the system board. Two of the prongs had been pushed into one of the USB ports, and caused a increase in the electricity powered to the computer. Hope that helps for anyone else that has this problem.
  3. I examined the USB ports. They all seem perfectly fine. I will post pictures in a few minutes.

    I removed the plate and the problem is still there.
  6. Hmmmmm... Try this:

    Grounding issues:

    Your USB ports are somehow getting short-circuited.
    To identify if this is the cause of your errors, simply remove your motherboard from your case and place it on a non-conductive surface (like wood) and try to start it from there.


    Causes:
    1. Screws used to mount the motherboard are too tight
    2. Rogue mounting bolts attached to your case are touching the underside of your motherboard
    3. Some kind of conductive material is under or on your motherboard causing short-circuits
    4. Wrong installation of front-panel cables
  7. Ok I fixed the problem. Lucky the standoffs weren't the problem. I have a MSI motherboard and they basically have these little plastic things with metal inside of them plugged onto a few pins. Since it was my first build I thought that's where the USB front header goes into so I removed the little plastic thing. As it turns out this was the thing that regulates the amount of power that is sent to the USB and the metal inside of the plastic thing does that. I put it back up and right now I am typing this from my new PC
  8. This worked for me! I tried resetting my BIOS by removing the battery, and I made sure my board was not being short circuited by the metal header panel, and I removed all of my USB inputs into the motherboard... But this was the solution that worked for me. Thanks!

    I fucking love you (no homo). Had nearly the identical problem. Am typing this at about midnight.

    Me too, love you both!!!
  11. Hey can you be more specific about these plastic things? I have a msi motherboard, and im having the same problem, but I dont remember taking any plastic things off the motherboard.

    So sorry for not replying on the forum. Issue was solved by removing the ram memory, this caused the issue.

    Wait,i am very confused. So you fixed it by removing the RAM? I thought you just said the problem was that you took some plastic caps of some pins.

    When this error appears, it seems like you lost your motherboard, but that isn’t the case. The problem is just that the USB unit is getting too much current, and it can’t process it. Because of that there’s a series of steps we can do to troubleshoot this problem: 1- Check your USB ports, and see if they are damaged (specifically, check if the internal pins of the port are bent and making contact inside). If that’s the case, get the pins straight. 2- If the USB ports are Ok, the next step is to open the PC and check if the Jumpers are properly located. The Jumpers are like little blue chips that connect some motherboard pins together. Check in your motherboard manual which is the default position of these jumpers. In each motherboard the number of jumpers needed may vary, in my case, my motherboard needed 3 pins: 1 for the keyboard power, and 2 for the USB power units (that are located separately, one near the back USB ports, and other near the motherboard connection with the PC case). REMEMBER: when you touch your motherboard (specially the pins), remember to disconnect the power source and touch metal to get the static energy out of your body. 3- If that doesn’t work, check if there’s any bent pin making contact with each other in the motherboard. 4- If the problem still persists, its probably because of the setting that your BIOS got, so probably you have to reset it. To see the further, you can check in your manual “how to clear CMOS”. Anyhow, here are some alternatives: you remember the position of the Jumper pins?, well check in your manual, there’s possibly another position or setting that it’s not meant to be the default position, but is to clear the CMOS. 5- If you don’t get to clear your CMOS this way, you may also retire your motherboard battery and put it back again after 2 minutes; this will reset the BIOS also.

    You are a lifesaver i took the little plastic thing off not knowing what it. Thank you so much
