P5K-E/WiFi-AP: USB Device Over Current Status

Hi guys,

After restarting my computer (Motherboard is Asus P5K-E/WiFi-AP) I got this error for the first time:

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

I did a quick Google search on the error and decided to "reset the CMOS" - something I'd never heard off, and didn't really understand, but it has instructions in my manual. I followed the instructions carefully and turned off PC, removed all cables, removed battery (had to remove graphics card first as battery was underneath) and then moved the jumper to 2-3 (well I think it was 2-3 as it was not labelled like that, but I removed the plsatic thing off to the right, from the 3 pins, left it for a bit then put it back.) and then put battery in and tried booting up again.

My boot screen looked a bit different (not sure why I didn't build PC) and then got this error instead, the same but with something added:

CMOS Settings Wrong.
CMOS Date/Time Not Set.
USB Device Over Current Status Detected !!
System will Shut Down after 15 Seconds.

I'd really appreciate any help!
