It sounds like you have smoked up your motherboard i.e. damaged a component.

If you are lucky, there will be a fuse for the USB power.  But if you're not so lucky, the motherboard will need repair or replacement.  Either way, a costly and time consuming business Frown

Either the MB is poorly designed/faulty componenty or one of your attached devices is likewise poorly designed/had faulty componentry as overloading of the power circuitry to cause permanent damage should not be possible.

Good luck proving which device it was with a manufacturer/supplier however.

No, that doesn't have anything to do with your problem. This message is displayed by default and I would guess your PC isn't plugged into an uninterruptible power supply at all, not that it would matter anyway.

Do you know which model motherboard you have? It will be printed on the motherboard surface somewhere in big characters.

Hi,

I had a similiar problem not long ago and I fixed it by turning off the computer, unplugging it from the wall and leaving it for about 5 minutes. Try that and see if it works.

It worked a treat for me so give it a go and see what happens. In the worse case you've blown something on your motherboard but it could just be as simple as unplugging it completely for a little bit.

Cheers,

lillow
