Over current on USB port

Go to solution Solved by Applefreak,

When charging your laptop? Or is it your motherboard?

 

If it's a pc, you most likely are experiencing a grounding issue. Your IO cover should have those small metal pieces that touch the usb and other ports on the motherboard on the inside. If contact is bad or missing, you need to remove the motherboard and make sure there is sufficient contact.

 

Now if the issue is with your laptop and occurs while charging via usb, you are either using a faulty power supply or the laptop has a defective port.

Am alway getting over current on USB port notifications. any advice?
