I kinda feel like i'm spamming the forum since this is my 3rd thread in the same week...

Anyway, i was working in BIOS then i saved and restarted nothing pops up on screen so i clear the bios then starts the computer looks fine till its supposed to start booting into windows, instead it says "Warning!!! USB Device over current status detected!!! unplug USB device!!! computer will restart in 18 seconds."

Anyone have any idea what the heck this is? By the way the only things plugged into the USB is my keyboard and mouse and i tried unplugging those with no success...

EDIT: err... i just realized i posted this in the wrong topic, meant to post it in the hardware and stuff topic.

Theres only three things I can think of for this known problem with asus boards

Try another keyboard and mouse
Reset the cmos again by removing the motherboard battery for 15 minutes with the machine unpluged
Dis connect front usb if you have it to see if thats causing the problem

Great job finding that and thanks for reporting it, this problem is all over the web with no one solution, I remember to suggest checking that.

Electrical tape cpould possibly work, what seems to be making contact with the case?

Just make sure all the standoffs line up with the mounting holes on the board, no more and no less, if you have a extra in there that will do it

I have this issue also. I have not found any fixes for this, only a dodgy work around.

Go into the BIOS and change "Halt on all Errors" to none. Keeps you working for now...
