    sounds like a short on the board. Make sure you have no screws or feet under it making contact.

    Hi scsaus, welcome to Hexus

    I agree with jay's post above, it certainly sounds like a short.

    Did you pack the tower in a box when you were moving it by any chance ? A box with other stuff in perhaps ?

    I would also check each of the USB sockets to make sure nothing metallic has become lodged in one of them causing the pins to short out... plugging a regular USB plug in and out of each socket and checking it goes in all the way without resistance should suffice...

    Do you have any USB Devices connected ? It might also be worth removing all of them and seeing if you get the same 'over current' error on boot.

    Once you get to the desktop, go round each USB socket and plug something in and see if windows recognises it ok, if so, remove it and try another socket, etc...
