Preferred Solution: USB over-current detected/comp wont turn on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We have a comp plugged into a surge protector, and when you flip the switch, it won't turn on unless you flip it on-off for about a minute (literally) We tried plugging it into the wall, and a different surge protector, and same problem. Is the relay switch inside the comp going bad?? If so, how do we fix it?

THe Hard Driver i think is the problem.

the yellow LED on the front is flashing. Whatever I do to the computer it wont turn on, so I pulled the power cord out to stop it(the led that was flashing). When I plugged it back in today, it just started flashing again. The computer is off but it still flashes, . instead of turnign on It just flashes this yellow light. Any ideas? i am runing windows Xp home and a 71GB hard driver
it worked fine when changed the hard driver to another hard driver(20GB Windows Xp media center). i pluged the 71GB as slave and it steal wont turn on.
i really need to access that hard drive my entire website data is in there.
PLease if some one can help me

Thanx in advence

A:HELP MY COMP. Wont turn on

Hi Igli and welcome to the Techspot Forum :wave:

First its a Hard Drive not a hard driver, from your post I can only guess that the 71GB Hard Drive has failed, either mechanically or electronically.

Suggestions, go to the maufacturers website and download the test tool for the drive in question and test it, sorry to say if the test tool finds it faulty then all your data is gone.

hey, i just finished putting together a pc for my grandpas office, ive checked like 81239812 times, everything is connected properly. When i hit the power button, nothing happens. Not even an attempt to boot, no fans turn on, nothing.

any suggestions??

A:New comp wont turn on

Don't worry this happens all the time! Remember to power off before disconnecting anything. Do you get any beeps? 1 beep is good - more beeps is bad and can tell you what is going wrong.
First take out the motherboard and make sure that there not too many stand-offs; any extras can short out the board.
If this is OK, check you have all the front panel connections on the right pins - an LED connection on the reset button for example will stop it booting.
If this still does not sort it, disconnect everything and take out all the cards except the front panel and power supply cables. Does it boot? Reconnect one thing at a time and that will tell you what is causing the problem.
Get back to us!

I was on my computer i got a bright flash and now my comp wont turn on is this just my power supply or worse

A:Comp wont turn on

Where did the bright flash come from?
If you're lucky it's just the power supply. Worst case scenario? Everything in it is fried.
I'd try a different power supply first, then take it from there.

I'm running a Prescott P4 3.2 gHz, 1.5 gigs of ram, nVidia 5500 card, on an ASRock Motherboard model p4v88, running WinXp sp2 and every single update...

Last night I shut down the system before I left with no problems. I haven't had *any* problems with it, really, as long as I've owned it. I take great care of it and it's been devoid of viruses or disk error or anything since I've had it (only 5 months). Also no BIOS updates in a long time, and no windows updates in a few weeks.

This morning I pushed power and the fans whirred up for maybe a half a second before the system turned off. I pushed power again and the same thing happened. I unplugged everything from the back but the power, same. I opened it up (unplugged) and pulled out the ram - same. Uplugged the harddrives - same. Cdroms/pci cards/video card/ etc., until the only thing that was plugged in was the motherboard. I'm still having the same problem. The little green LED on the front of the case remains lit even tho the sys isn't on. I think the PSU is okay... what the hell could the problem be? The computer was plugged into a surge protector so I don't think it got a shock. I haven't like spilled water on it or anthing.. ahh...

A:Comp Wont Turn On - No Symptoms!

Read other 12 answers

Well my computer doesn't turn on anymore. It was working fine and then the power cord of the surge got unplugged from the outlet. Needless to say the comp wont turn on anymore. I was wondering if its the psu or the mobo that has messed up. When I plug in the comp the steady power light turns on, on the mobo which i assume it means it receiving some type of power. But when I press the power button the led lights of comp flash on and then turn back off. So does anybody know if its the psu or the mobo that is damaged?

A:Comp Wont Turn ON is it the PSU or the Mobo

Probably Power Supply (hard to say really)

Just for a quick option:

Remove the power cord
Hold the On button in for 30 secs (releasing all internal voltage)
Put the power cord back in (securely)
Turn on (I hope)

ok, so lets start like this: i dont know too much about computers, but i did a little research. i know what the motherboard is and i know that the actual power button on the tower just sends the signal to switch on or off to the power supply unit... And i havent done anything to my computer recently just have gone online. So All i did was shut my computer down last night, and it WOULDNT TURN ON this morning.
- i already tried unplugging and plugging back in, and changed the the power bar. everything else on the bar works (my light, the monitor, the dsl box, and the speakers) except the computer base.

I know I made a thread about building a new comp from scratch before and I asked my parents for the parts for christmas. If they say no to the parts its going to take a while for me to get the cash together to buy the stuff I want for the computer I am building.

So, if my parents dont get the stuff for me I want to at least have a halfway decent gaming computer while I am saving up for the one I am going to build. The game I am going to be playing mostly (after christmas) is going to be World Of Warcraft, so I want the game to run smoothly with minimum lag.

Right now my comp matches all the minimum requirments for the game, but I am pretty sure even with that the game isnt going to run very well.

So I was thinking of getting a new vid card (I am currently running a GeForce FX5500) and I have about 350mb of ram (max my comp can take is 550 ram).

What else would be worth getting for my current computer. Specs in sig.

Edit: Here are the system requirments to run the game

A:USB OVER Current Detected

You need to isolate the USB device that is causing the problem.

First make sure you can boot normally with only mouse and keyboard plugged in.
Then power down, plug in one USB d3vice then power up.
Repeat until you find the one causing the problem and replace it.

My PC this morning has suddenly and without any warning, gone wrong and cannot be started up.

I am getting the American Megatrends (AMI) warning " USB Device Over Current Detected, system will shut down in 15 seconds"

Even after unplugging everything, including even the monitor, the PC is shutting down after 15 seconds.

What is the cause? Has the motherboard failed? If so can this be replaced without loosing data ( I know this is on the HD so should be ok).

Any advice please?

A:USB Device Over Current Detected??

Have a look in the motherboard manual for USB jumpers. Most of the threads I found about this problem were caused by a loose jumper on the mobo or one that had fallen off.

It can also be caused by a damaged USB socket. Check that none of the PC's USB sockets are damaged.

2 days ago I got an error, USB Over Current Status Detected, System will shut down in 15 seconds!! I have an Asus board, model: p5b-e, I have tried everything to fix it. I have taken out the usb connectors and tried booting w/o them, i did a complete reset, one reset was over 8 hours, which wasn't necessary. I do believe i did find out where the problem came from though. On my computer case i have 2 2.0 usb ports one of them is broken. a black piece fell out and 2 metal pieces are stationed in the middle of the port. Even with reseting the mobo and booting with no usb connectors i get the same error. I contacted ASUS all they told me to do was to RMA it. I was surprise they had put no effort in trying to fix it. Maybe it unfixable. Im not sure but does anyone know what going on here with my pc? i would like to use it since im on vacation thnx in advance

First of all, I have a 64 bit windows 7 that has been running fine for about a year and a half until now. Due to the nature of the problem, I am not able to run SysInfo to tell many more details.
When I turn on my computer, it almost finishes loading through the bios when I get an error which says "Usb Over Current Status Detected. Computer will shut down in 15 seconds." I cannot get to the setup menu.
I have tried:
adding more ram, remove all but one stick of ram, unplugging everything plugged into my usb ports, unplugging every usb port from the motherboard, resetting the date/time jumper, reseting the cmos, updating motherboard drivers, and updating the bios.
The weird part is, everything that I has tried has worked temporarily. Most of these solutions have allowed me to start up my computer and everything works for a few hours, but then the computer get the blue screen and when I start it up again, the same error happens. I have seen plenty of other people with this issue and I have tried every solution that they have done to fix it, but they have not worked.

A:Usb Over Current Status Detected

Read other 16 answers

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem. About 3 days ago I got the message 'USB Over Current Status Detected, THE PC WILL BE SHUT DOWN IN 15 SECONDS!!'. Unplugged my keyboard, mouse and internet reception booster thingy, replugged them in and everything worked fine.

The time between then and this morning everything worked fine, no problems. Went out to buy a new USB mouse as my last one the wheel was starting to become dodgy. Plugged that in this morning, turned on my PC and I'm getting that message again. Unplugged the mouse, keyboard and internet booster and I'm still getting the message.

I've turned the computer off, unplugged everything and replugged in everything but to no avail.

The motherboard I'm using is 'ASUS m4a77td'.

Basically I do not care if I end up without a USB slot, I have 8 and only use 3, so if there's anyway of disableing some of the ports in a sort of trial and error check?

If it is broken beyond quickfix repair and has to be sent off for repairs is there anyway to get work off of my PC as I've got revision on there for one of my last year university exams and dissertation work.

Any help would be majorly majorly appreciated.

Alright, those these two issues are most likely unrelated, it's awfully coincidental that they concluded tonight in my computer being dead.

I'm a World of Warcraft player who recently began experiencing critical errors. Rapidly, over two days, the problem got progressively worse, until I couldn't even start the game. Then my browser began to crash, and then I began to blue screen. It occurred to me around this time that the computer itself may be the problem. So I set up windows memory diagnostic tool and ran it, and just about every test it ran failed. So, I decided to try and identify which of my 4 ram sticks (1 gig each) were the problem. I first took out the ram in the 2nd and 4th slot, and ran the test again. Perfect, every test passed. Great. Just needed to replace those two sticks and I'd be set.

I noticed however that one of the sticks I removed in the 4th slot had a hard time getting out. I decided to see if that port was in error. I moved the obviously good ram from 1/3 to 2/4, and as I was putting the ram in, the plastic that contained it snapped. Now... I'm 99% sure I wasn't putting it in with extraordinary pressure, but obviously I broke it. Oh well... this is no good. I put the RAM back into 1/4 and started the computer up..

I now have to give a very brief side story, and I really appreciate you taking the time to read all this. I had, on rare, non-repeating occurences, experienced an error when I booted up my computer for a few ... Read more

I'm reluctant to be one of those guys that joins a forum just because I have a problem, but I feel like I've run into a dead end. I haven't been able to boot up my desktop because every time I do, I get a message saying 'USB Device Over Current Status Detected!!' The computer then shuts down after 15 seconds. From what I've read on similar threads, this is not an uncommon problem on ASUS boards, but none of the solutions have worked for me.

The problem began a couple nights ago when I used my one of desktop's front panel USB ports to charge up my Syma S107 RC helicopter. However, after an hour of being plugged in, the indicator light never turned on the show the helicopter was charged. In fact, it had not even charged enough to turn on. I shut down my computer for the night and the next morning, the machine wouldn't boot up.

Things I have tried:
*Removing all USB devices from the board
*Unplugging the front panel USB ports from the motherboard
*Checking the case for loose screws, metal chips, etc.
*Removing the mobo from the case and resting it on cardboard, then trying to boot up with only the monitor and keyboard connected
*Removing the CMOS battery to reset the motherboard
*Resetting the motherboard using the CLRTC jumper

While the above attempts have worked for other people, I haven't had similar luck. The only thing I haven't tried is manually downgrading or upgrading the BIOS version, because I'm unsure of what ... Read more

A:USB Device Over Current Status Detected

Read other 9 answers

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. And I have the most up to date BIOS from Asus.

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


A:USB Device Over Current Status Detected !!

Hi. I did use search function and still have the USB current status over detected and cannot boot properly. Here is a list of everything I did - if anyone has any additional suggestions please let me know.

I did the following:

1) Disconnect front panel USB
2) Check all USB slots for damage, there was no damage
3) Reset the BIOS by removing battery
4) Change the memory
5) Change the motherboard battery
6) Flash BIOS to newest version

I still get this USB error. I shined a flashlight at all the USB slots at the back and they look pretty fine to me. Note that previously, the computer could not boot into Windows properly because of a damaged SATA cable and I have changed it. It boot fine for 1 day and on the 2nd day, I received this error.

Thanks in advance to everyone who can help.

A:Asus P5k-VM USB current status over detected, tried almost everything

So you have all USB devices disconnected?

On the motherboard I believe there are jumpers for USB standby, possibly just one but could be a few, check the motherboard to verify. If it does indeed have them, try changing the jumper positions from enabled to disabled or vice versa.

Otherwise you may have faulty motherboard.

EDIT: you may want to see if removing the motherboard from the case clears the error, just set it up on card board and try booting it up.

A:USB device over current status detected!

Your first error: The system has detected what appears to be a failure with the keyboard controller, which interfaces the keyboard to
the motherboard.
There is a problem either with the keyboard or with the keyboard controller on the motherboard.
This is almost always a configuration or connection problem. It's extremely rare for a keyboard to fail outright;
they're just too simple of a device to have a lot of failures. A common problem is having the keyboard not inserted
fully into the connector on the motherboard.
Meaning: Remove keyboard from Computer and replace it carefully. Check pins to make sure none are bent in the process. If you're still recieving the message, it means the Motherboard where the keyboard is connected has a problem.

Second Error: Think I'd go to ASUS as it appears you are not alone with the USB but rather many owners of ASUS have the same problem. There are various ways to by pass the problem but there are also various reasons it occurs. Biggest reason seems to be a gliche' in the Bios. (You also need to make sure your USB is enabled in your bios, and you don't have anything attached to the usb ports when you boot. If you do remove them and reboot without them.
Go to your ASUS manufacture and either email or call them. If your keyboard continues to have an interface problem you need to be requesting a replacement for the Motherboard you have as soon as possible. Luck and let us know...Jazz

I recently attained a 4th GB of RAM and installed it today. I am aware that Windows XP 32bit does not support fully up to 4GB of RAM but I got it for free (it was a gift and was bought from Best Buy) so I decided to at least install it and let it use partial of it for an added boost.

However, now I am getting different readouts on how much RAM I currently have.

Help and Support (General System Information hcp://system/sysinfo/sysinfomain.htm) says: 3GB

DirectX Diagnostic (dxdiag) says: 1GB

Windows Task Manager says: 1GB


System (in Control Panel) says: 1GB of RAM - Physical Address Extension

The weird part is, I checked my boot.ini and I do not have PAE enabled at all. So I do not know why it says this.

Is this something I should be deeply worried about or is it just showing 1GB but uses 3GB-3.5GB in actuality?

Computer Specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 4800+ (2.5GHz Dual Core)
HDD: 320GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
Graphics Card: nVidia GeForce 8500 1GB
Memory: 4GB RAM Total
3GB (1GB sticks) CORSAIR XMS2 240-Pin DDR2 (PC2 6400)
1GB PNY 240-Pin DDR2 (PC2 5300)
OS: Windows XP 32bit SP3

I apologize if this is in the wrong section. (Seeing as I have no clue if this is a OS fault or a Hardware fault) I don't know if this should be in Windows XP or RAM. If a moderator would please move this to the appropriate section it would be much appreciated.

A:Different Variations of RAM Detected on Current Computer

How much RAM does the BIOS report?

If the BIOS reports 4GB of RAM installed, then that is what is installed, even if Windows won't report it. 32 bit systems are weird when it comes to RAM.

I started my computer and startup stops at American Megatrends screen with the message "USB device over current status detected" and shutting down in 15 secs. Motherboard of PC is P8H61-M LX3. Following were tried after referring to websites.

1.USB connections (as well as Audio connection) to front panel and USB mouse connected from back panel removed.
2.Tried to install BIOS from given CD for ASUS motherboard.
3.Tried to install latest BIOS downloaded from ASUS website to flashdrive.
4.At last cleared RTC RAM using Jumpers hoping it will prompt to BIOS setup.

None of above worked so far. How could I fix the issue? Appreciate help.

I'm trying to figur out a way to have MY COMPUTER by default for all type of browsing/save as instead of ending up on the "Library one".

I found a way to do it for Windows Explorer but when i browse/save as in misc application it always end up on the Library folders by default.

There the way to get it done for Windows Explorer:

Open any Windows Explorer windows, right click on it, go to properties then in the target write this down: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

Okay, I am now a member of the "USB device over current status detected" club. Here's what led up to the error, as I'm stumped as to what to try.

I've had this computer for years, since it was new, with zero problems. For memory I had 4 sticks of Ult30215 512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz for a total of 2 gigs of memory (my computer recognized all 2 gigs with no problems).

Recently I decided I'd like to bump my memory to the max of 4 gigs (or a little less, as detailed by the manual). So I purchased four sticks of 1GB PC3200 184pin DIMM non-ECC 400MHz. I don't know the brand name because I got them on eBay. 18004memory's system scan just shows two 1gig sticks.

When the new 1gig sticks arrived I powered the computer down, removed the four 512MB sticks and installed the four 1gig sticks. Power on and beep, "USB Device Over Current Status Detected System will Shut Down in 15 seconds."

I made NO other changes other than installing the four new 1gig sticks of RAM. The tower was not moved. No jumpers were dislodged and remain in place. No motherboard screws were adjusted in any way. I've never had front USB ports connected and they remain disconnected.

I unplugged all USB devices and reinstalled the four 512MB sticks and the system booted flawlessly ("System" showed 2 gigs of RAM). I removed the four 512MB sticks and installed ONE 1gig stick in slot B1 (the correct slot for just 1 stick of RAM, per the manual). The syst... Read more

So there are a few threads about this, but I wanted to run my scenario by someone.

Recently the ASUS P5SD1 motherboard failed in my Fujitsu Scaleo P desktop.
It's a few years old now so the nearest good value (read cheap!) replacement I could find was the ASUS P5KPL which I ordered with a new pair of 2GB Kingston DIMMS to replace the now defunct PC3200 stuff on the old board.

The installation seemed to go well initially after reactivating XP with Microsoft I reinstalled the Wifi card and ATI Radeon X550 graphics card.

Then the PC would no longer boot showing the USB over current message.

I read a few threads one of which suggested removing the graphics card and this seems to have worked.

My question is WHY!

Why should the graphics card cause a USB over current problem??
The only USB devices attached are a mouse and keyboard, and with the graphics card disconnected they work fine.

I suppose I can stick with the onboard graphics of the new mobo, but it seems a shame not to use the Radeon card if I have it.

For the past week this error message has appeared on my screen upon boot:

USB Over Current Status Detected, Computer will shut down in 15 seconds

I've been determined to solve it but it just won't go away. I cannot get my computer started at all, or even access BIOS settings. My computer specification can be found in the link in the top right, the motherboard in question is the ASUS P5K-E.

After reading forum discussions involving the same problem, I've tried nearly everything.

Disconnecting front USB panel,
Removing all USB devices before switching on
Resetting CMOS
Powering up the computer with minimum components connected
Checked for short circuit problems (spare screws/motherboard touching case...)

The remaining suggestions are;

starting it up outside of the case
loosening the screws that connect the motherboard to the case

I'm going to attempt them solutions tomorrow. I would like to know if there are any other solutions to this problem though, as I am quickly running out of ideas. Perhaps the error is not caused by a short circuit and could be something else?

Lastly, I must mention that the computer has operated without the problem for 12 months. HOWEVER; one USB port (onboard) has been unstable for around two months since I tried connecting my keyboard (instrument) to my computer. I seen a message pop up in the bottom right hand corner indicating "power surge on USB port" (or something close). When I seen th... Read more

Okay so yesterday I was making music and had just finished when my mouse started to be really sluggish. I turned the computer off and then back on.

I now get the message:
"USB device over current status detected"

Here's an image:
Things that I have tried in order to fix things:

1. I've tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery and also the jumper for about 2-3 minutes with no power to the motherboard.

2. Updated/flashed the BIOS to the most current version.

3. Re-seated things such as RAM, processor, hard drives.

4. The cables from the front USB ports aren't even connected as I never really used them anyway and they sometimes caused problems because my gf accidentally damaged the port.

5. Tried a different CMOS battery.

I have consired re-installing Windows as, for about 10 minutes or so, I kept getting an error message saying that a file was missing or corrupt.

If I could get to the BIOS it'd be a start but it only allows me to use the EZ Flash 2 by pressing ALT+F2. F8 doesn't work, TAB doesn't work and neither does DEL.

My motherboard is an Asus M5A78L-M USB3. Is there anything else that I could try? I don't give up easily and if re-installing Windows is an option then I'll do it but I'm not thinking that this is the issue here.
Any help would be great!

Okay I left the BIOS battery out for half an hour as well as the jumper on different pins. I'm able to access the BIOS again now as it thankfully seems to have reset itself... Read more

A:USB device over current status detected, can't enter BIOS.

If it's overcurrent on a USB port then something is shorting, basically one or more of your USB ports could be knackered. How many ports do you have and what peripherals do you have plugged into them?

I have seen a lot of similar threads to his on the web, but none seem to have the same set of circumstances as me, please help!
My problems started after a windows update which required me to restart my system. Now it barely boots up before showing a message USB Over Current Status Detected, Computer will shut down in 15 seconds.

I have tried unplugging all the USB devices to no avail. I am unable to boot into BIOS using Tab or delete as instructed on the opening screen, it just boots a little further before coming up with the same message.

I have not opened the case or connected any new devices so I am pretty sure it's something to do with the upgrade.

How can I correct this when I can'teven boot into Bios?

I am running Windows XP SP3, the computer is not home built, but a generic box bought on-line which has been running good as gold for the past 18 months. Thanks

A:Solved: USB Over Current Status Detected, Computer will shut down in 15 seconds

After doing some Googling, the common consensus is that you may have a short circuit somewhere.

Personally, I would remove the cover and check all cables.

Ensure the motherboard is not in direct contact with the case.

Also, give it a (gentle) shake and ensure there are no loose screws roling around inside your case.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate with 3Gb RAM ( 2 x 512Mb and 2 x 1 Gb DIMMS ) - system runs perfectly.

Upgraded to 4Mb ( 4 x 1Gb DIMMS ) and system will not boot - error message is as follows :

"USB device over current status detected. System will shut down in 15 seconds"

And it does ! Restored memory back down to a total of 3Gb, and hey presto, all is well again.

I have an ASUS A8V Deluxe motherboard - would a BIOS flash update help solve this problem?

hello and to start off i'd like to thank anyone who takes time to read this and try to help me out, thank you.

I'm running win xp sp2.

On July 1st an infected file was downloaded and run. AVG and Winpatrol noticed this and prompted the user to take action. The user checked to block all changes that the infected file tried to make, and deleted the file. Then music started to come from the speakers. All kinds of completly random stuff that is not installed on the computer. In task manager there was a file "c.exe" after ending this process the music stopped and it never came back. I don't know if it is related, but the next day the computer started to have problems.

Gaim 99% of the time hangs and timeouts when trying to connect a screen name. I do not have a firewall and windows one is disabled.

To get firefox to work, i had to open the browser, it wouldnt appear on screen but the process showed in task manager. Then i used task manager to end the process tree. Then when i opened the browser it would open but run slowly. This no longer works. Now when i click to open it nothing happens and the process does not show up in task manager.

Internet explorer works fine and that is what i'm using to write this. The computer was also having this overall lag with everything i'd try to do on it. Ex: open the start menu, open folders, etc. However as of this last computer restart, not that i've done anything to fix it, the computer runs at normal spe... Read more
