    Usb Device Over Current Status Detected Caused by Graphics Card


      "Usb Device Over Current Status Detected"


      Power Supply: Cooler master G550M

      Motherboard: Asus P8H61 LX R2.0

      Processor: Core i3

      Ram: 4GB

      Graphics Card: Asus R7 260x 2GB OC Edition


      My External graphics card is causing the problem.


      When I turn on my pc it's showing that "Usb Device Over Current Status Detected!! System will shutdown after 15 second". But without the graphins card my pc starts fine and doesn't shutdown automatically in 15 second. But there is no display in motherboard's vga port.


      I tried the folloing solution:


      1. Tested everything using another powersupply.

      2. Removed front usb and sound line from motherboard.

      3. Removed all unnecessary connection from motherboard(front led,sound,restart,dvd etc.)

      4. I checked the 4 wire connected to motherboard near processor.

      5. I checked my pc using another ram.

      6. Back usb's are totaly fine.

      7. There is no cross connection over the pin's of motherboard.

      8. Tested everything(motherboard,psu,hdd) outside the pc case.

      9. I put my graphcs card(16x) from 16x slot to 1x slot(but still getting the same error)


      Do I have to change my graphics card?

      Thanks for advice.

          This error message means that a USB port or connection is damaged. It is unlikely to be a faulty graphics card.


          Disconnect all USB devices, memory cards and hubs except the keyboard and mouse.  Plug the keyboard and mouse into the back USB ports and give it a go.


          If you get the same issue then move the mouse to a front port.


          If the above doesn't work then use a flashlight can look closely into each back and front USB port for a bent pin.


          Another thing to try is to open up the PC, find the USB cables going to a motherboard and header, remove one cable (marking where it was remove from) and then boot up and see if the issue persists.  do the same procedure for each USB cable going to the motherboard.
