SOURCE: short circuit
If you look into the USB port and there are four finger like metal contacts and one of these is bent and touching the metal casing it is shorting out the 5 volts supply. Remove the connection to the power supply and remove the battery then straighten the finers so they dont touch anything. Replace the power adaptor and try again - if the laptop now works that is fine but you will not be able to use that damaged usb port.
