New PC build problem USB device over current status detected

July 28, 2014 at 18:02:55
Specs: Windows 7
Ok so today I received all my new PC parts for my build. I set everything up in about 2-3 hours as it was my first build and I ran the test booth. I connected a VGA cable to the motherboard and to the monitor and what appeared was ''usb device over current status detected will shutdown in 15 seconds'. I proceeded to remove every single USB cable from the motherboard but the problem still persisted. I therefore guess it's a problem with the main motherboard usb slots.

Anywho, I then, while still having all the front usb cables unplugged from the motherboard unplugged every single USB device I had., even the VGA cable but the problem still persists. The trick is, sometimes it comes up and sometimes it dosen't. Sometimes it boots me into some menu thing with startup,nas or such since I have no operating system.

I may add that the problem only started when I connected my Keyboard to a USB slot. It wasn't showing me the error before. I own a MSI

Has that keyboard been used on other systems without incident?

Does the keyboard have any memory card or USB ports built into it?

Did you connect any USB ports to any USB headers on the motherboard?

How about borrowing another keyboard and trying it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
