Hi all, recently had a problem with a mates pc. After starting, i get the error message "USB over current status detected, PC will shutdown in 15 seconds". Prior to these the PC was just temporarily shut down as i have to use the power chord in another computer. After plugging the chord back in that's when it started.

A couple of things that i did are:
1. Disabled the front usb's by removing the wires. (as googled)
2. Replaced the power supply from another PC.
3. turned on the machine with only 1 RAM, Video card, and Processor.

but still encountered the problem.

I also could not access the bios since it shuts down after the error message.

Below is the specs:

Motherboard: Asus P5S-MX SE
OS: Windows XP Home Edition

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time in reading this.

PEACE...

Alright... I've gotta ask. What's plugged into the USB port?

Check to make sure that the motherboard isn't shorting to the case. You could also disconnect the USB cables one at a time to see if you have a bad cable.
