Question about Computers & Internet
Did the system power down as soon as you plugged it in? Or just at the next reboot some time later? It is possible there was a short at the usb port. It is unusual to burn out the mobo, since most usb ports are fused.
Unplug all peripherals, drives and cards, then try to roboot just the motherboard. If that's ok, the plug things back in, one by one and boot each time.
Also, if the usb jack is damaged somehow, unplug it from the motherboard headers and try to boot.
