Hey, guys,

I wonder if you can help me out here, Iīm in one hell of a problem.

A few minutes ago I inserted a pen drive into my old computer's USB and the computer froze.
I pressed the reset button hoping to reboot it and now it wonīt restart.

When I switch on the computer, the screen appears with the P5K SE ASUS screen.
Then I get this message:

USB device over current detected!!
System will shut down in 15 seconds.

And the computer switches off by itself.

Windows XP home edition
P5K SE motherboard
3-4 gigs ram
Ge force board, canīt remember the series

Is there a way to remedy this?

I have tried disconnecting all USB devices but the problem persists.

Help. :(

Hey man,

You may have damaged your USB connector. Try opening up your computer, and unplug the wire that runs from your USB hub to your motherboard.
