USB Device Over Current Status Detected!!

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I bought a new motherboard for my PC and I have this error. I tried almost everything I know, reset the BIOS and change the jumpers but nothing works. I read the manual and I found nothing about this error. Does anyone have any idea why this error appears? How can this one be fixed?


Please enter setup to recover BIOS settings. USB Device Over Current Status Detected!!

System Will Shut Down After 15 Seconds.

USB Device Over Current Status Detected!!


I don’t think that message will really appear on your Windows desktop after installing a new motherboard. You will only see that message on your screen during BIOS startup and before loading Windows so that’s very odd if that appeared when Windows is already running. When installing a new motherboard on your CPU, you need to have its drivers which usually come as a CD together with the board.

Once the motherboard is installed and fixed inside the CPU, make necessary modifications on the BIOS setup. All devices should be installed in their respective ports and sockets like the memory card, video card, network adapter, hard drive, DVD drive, and so on. Since modern motherboards nowadays are already equipped with SATA ports for SATA drives, make sure your SATA hard drive is detected and configured in the BIOS.

The label indicated in “SATA Port 1” on the screenshot, I think, is the serial number or maybe the model number of the SATA drive installed on your computer. I think that message appeared on your screen because you have a USB flash drive attached on one of the ports of your CPU while booting the computer and it will interfere with the entire booting process.

If this happens, instead of the CPU booting the system with the default SATA hard drive, it will be started with the USB flash drive. To fix this, go to the BIOS setup then change the booting sequence selecting your SATA drive to boot first then putting your USB at the bottom of the list and then save the changes. After this, your system will now start with your SATA drive even if there is a USB flash drive attached on your CPU.
