    2 days ago I got an error, USB Over Current Status Detected, System will shut down in 15 seconds!! I have an Asus board, model: p5b-e, I have tried everything to fix it. I have taken out the usb connectors and tried booting w/o them, i did a complete reset, one reset was over 8 hours, which wasn't necessary. I do believe i did find out where the problem came from though. On my computer case i have 2 2.0 usb ports one of them is broken. a black piece fell out and 2 metal pieces are stationed in the middle of the port. Even with reseting the mobo and booting with no usb connectors i get the same error. I contacted ASUS all they told me to do was to RMA it. I was surprise they had put no effort in trying to fix it. Maybe it unfixable. Im not sure but does anyone know what going on here with my pc? i would like to use it since im on vacation :( thnx in advance

    Very hard to say what's wrong, but if you RMA it, they may fix it and send the same one back to you. RMA does not mean, "get a new one"!
