:welcome:   09PCDEADBH,

 

You may have shorted out the motherboard but to do so you would have needed to force the USB device into a port where it was not meant to go, is that what happened.

 

What are the brand and exact model name or number details of the notebook.

 

Tip

Please do not reply to your own OP or last reply as it may lead to your request for help being overlooked, staff and members who assist on the forums will always check out a topic that has not received any replies to see if they are able to help, if you reply to your own OP it will appear to others viewing the board that you have received a reply and so are already being helped, use the edit tab to add additional information while you are waiting for a reply to your OP or last reply, nothing gets overlooked that way  :thumbsup:

When bent contacts inside a USB port touch each other, it can immediately short out the motherboard.
