USB Device Over Current Status Detected !! P5B-E

I have an Asus P5B-E motherboard and have been getting the following message when I boot the system:

USB Device Over Current Status Detected !!
System will Shut Down After 15 Seconds.

The odd thing is that my system actually boots up 10% of the time just fine. I even installed XP on the system (in between the problematice boot problem I'm describing here). This sometimes occurs after I jiggle with some of the wires. So from there, I replugged everything in (three times) and still have this intermittent problem. I even tried on numerours occassions having nothing but the power and monitor connected (that is, no USB devices or other items connected) and get the same error message. With the error message, I am unable to even get to Setup.

All my other hardware is operating just fine and like I mentioned I have been able to get the system to run intermittently.

I reset the CMOS a couple times and that didn't help either.

Anyone have any advice or has anyone seen this problem before?

  1. Update your BIOS. It's a well known issue on Asus mobo.
  2. Thanks for the response but unfortunately I have the most up to date BIOS and that seems to make no difference.
