    I have the usb over current status message. I have cleared the cmos, checked the jumpers, pulled the mobo and tried to run it on cardboard to see if it was a grounding problem. I'm stuck. This is a new build and my fourth. Any suggestions?

Situation Remedies If you have encountered this error and would like to fix your computer, here are some remedies for each situation:
CMOS Battery Not Functioning Properly: If you suspect your CMOS battery is not functioning properly you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all settings are lost, you can usually get them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computers manual or tech support to remove your battery. Take down the CMOS batteries information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have remedied the problem.
Your BIOS has Been Updated (either by you or possibly a virus): If your BIOS has been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have become reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
The Computer Was Shut Down Improperly: Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your laptop or desktop without first properly shutting down your operating system it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer before turning off the power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu/ Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If you received the error, shut down the computer properly, if this is the cause of the error, the error message will not return.

    I Update the Bios myself because it was the first version with 3 years old, but when the system reboot the message "Cmos checksum bad" appeared, so I downgrade the Bios version 1 time, and again the same message, downgrade twice and the same, then I reset the Bios to the default settings and it worked.
    Thank you very much.

Fixed - there was two jumpers on different places on the motherboard, that selects if USB items can wake the computers sleep mode. One of those jumpers was missing.

It is in your bios this motherboard has been known to have isues with the bios chip.I am useing this motherboard and have been lucky I did not get this problem you are haveing.You may try flashing to the curent bios 1903 geting the download from the Asus site.

Then remove file
Rename file to P5LD2.rom
Put renamed file only on three and a half floppy disk
Reboot Holding alt F2 at same time
flash will start

If you do not feel safe doing this then you can get a new bios chip from asus with the 1903

Good Luck
Also make sure you have no air gaps on your heatsink to proc this will cause the pc to heat up and shut down.

Hi ihave apple power book g4 i want reboot

login in single user mode as below:

Starting up in single-user or verbose mode
    1. Shut down the computer if it is on.
    2. Press the power button to start the computer.
    3. Immediately press and hold the Command (Apple) key and one of the following:
    • the "s" key for single-user mode. (Command-S)
    • the "v" key for verbose mode. (Command-V)
You have successfully entered single-user or verbose mode when you see white text appear on the screen.

Once you are in the Single user mode type the following:

fsck -fy <then press enter>

If this command returns with an error or reports that is found an error but fixed it then run the command again and repeat until the drive checks good.

Once you are done with the repair or feel satisfied, type 'reboot' and press enter.
