Hey,

I had a problem where my PC would not display anything at all, that was narrowed down to a faulty motherboard which was replaced yesterday. After replacing it the computer started normally then gave an error, 'USB Device Over Current Status Detected' it then shut down after 15 seconds. I looked around for potential fixes and so removed the USB header from the motherboard, that still didn't fix the problem.

The next fix was to remove and re-insert the motherboard, even though this one was brand new and had only just been put in i did it anyway. Now the PC will not start up whatsoever. Everything is connected and when I press the power button there is no response, the only thing that is on is the motherboard light (it turns on once the power is connected).

I then tried all sorts of fixes for this problem, removing everything to see if the motherboard will start on its own, removing each piece of RAM to check for a faulty one. No response from the machine at all. Could it be that the motherboard has had it after 2 minutes?

The motherboard is an Asus H81M-E, I am now truly lost, any help is greatly appreciated.

Dis-assembly could have led to a lost washer/insulator for one of the standoffs.  That would  cause both problems you're seeing.

If you got an over current warning, likely something was shorting in one of the usb ports or as mentioned above, a screw or washer may be under the board shorting. It may have caused permanent damage. It could be a usb device such as a mouse or keyboard that has a problem. I would suggest visually inspecting all of the devices that connect through usb and all of the usb ports themselves.

I just re-assembled it again and there is no sign of anything like that, the PC still will not start up. It is exactly the same from when it was actually turning on.
