Asus Deluxe SLI Mobo - USB Over Current Status Detected, Computer will shut down in 15 secs

This computer worked just fine since last Christmas, until my son moved it downstairs and hooked it up. I looked everywhere and ensured all is plugged in, etc. The error still persists. I cannot boot to a floppy or CD, nor can I get into Bios.

Should I try taking out the battery and reset CMOs (how do I do that?)? would that help? I have a 500 watt Ultra power supply, works great. However, I went to their website and noticed that they have new SLI compatible Power Supplies. Would that make a difference?

Thanks in advance!

>  It should be listed in the mobo manual.
>>  USB Over Current Status Detected  <<  what devices were running on the USB ? if it was a disk drive, without external power supply, it may have caused it. - and once you have it, if the cmos reset (or a bios flash) does not cure it, i know of no way to reset it.
Do you have the error with ALL usb devices removed?

If your speakers are USB, they will also draw a lot of power...try connecting some mains powered speakers instead...

Reset the bios as nobus has suggested if you still get the error i would say the usb controller is freid and the motherboard will need to be replaced

I had to remove an unused card that has some USB on there. It solved the problem.
