    After dell logo on screen I get this USB Over Current Error. It directs me to F1 to continue or F2 to setup. I've continued with F1 to bootup and it takes me to desktop and I am able to run programs. It's just this usb over current error that comes up each time at startup. My specs are:

    Dell Inspiron 530s desktop computer
    150GB HDD
    2GB Ram
    Processor Intel Celeron CPU 2.00ghz
    32-bit Operating System
    Windows Vista Basic SP2

    CMOS checksum error - Defaults loaded

    that checksum, maybe a battery bios low - should not be an issue on having the keyboard and mouse disconnected BUT may just be a keyboard test

    how old is the PC

    2007 model.The computer had not been used for 6 months. The psu had gone bad and I just bought a new one and then post screen would freeze before ever getting to screen with usb over current error. I changed the cmos battery and then was able to startup. After pressing f1 I am able to use computer. Just a nuisance with the usb over current error.
