Heya all. i got a problem with the usb-current-overload.
after researched i found out that has to do with a usb device wanting more then the standard usb current.
well now the advanced problem is following.

i dont have front usb devices, i cleaned out my computer from dust, dont have any devices connected, and still cant boot system unless i put all my USB devices off in my BIOS.

i got an AMD mobo. if you want to know.

well i now know the problem HAS to be in the usb slots itself ( atleast... thats how far my computer knowledge goes XD). but the problem is, how can i fix this?

i cant see anything thats fried from the outside, and everything but the USB ports works normally.
I heared something about USB jumpers of wich i have NO idea what they are :) so that might be a cause too.

anyone has any suggestions? thanks in advance

okey a lil update now.
when in bios theres 3 options in the usb menu.
1 enable or disabled entire usb. ( wich i did disabled first to check if i could reboot)
2 enable EHPI ( thought it was tho.) ( this enabled the use of every USB 2.0 Device)
3 enable legacy ( make use of USB keyboard and mouse).

now i tried some stuff.
and it only crashes when i got EHPI enabled.

i can use the legacy one... could this be a driver problem perhaps?

How many usb slots do you have? And where are they located?
Will the computer boot at all with the usb keyboard and mouse only?
Can you get into safe mode by tapping F8 on startup?

This could possibly just a couple of bad ports.

well my keyboard has a ps-2 exit so it will boot up normally with that.
my mouse has a usb. but if i get the legacy USB type on it will boot aswell.

only when i put the other USB type for all usb 2.0 devices on i get problems.

i got 4 usb ports all in the back of the computer attached to the motherboard.
problem seems to lie in them.

did a system back up to 2 days ago to make sure a lately installed driver didnt cause the problem

other thing ill try later tonight. but is it safe mode of windows your speaking of?
