Im not sure if you're serious. However, you can do that by plugging in to the socket the male part of the power cord. :)

My pc wont continue booting because of usb overload

what makes you think its usb overload ?

Check your computer's power cable and the power cables to any devices connected to the computer. Make sure all cables are firmly plugged into electrical outlets and into the computer and other devices. If you have an extra power cable for your computer, swap it in to see if your computer's power cable is the problem. Remove your computer's battery, if it is a laptop, and connect the computer to a electrical outlet to see if it will start up. Sometimes a discharged battery will prevent a laptop from powering up. If your laptop still won't power up, remove the power cable, replace the battery and try to run the computer off battery power. Unplug your computer and plug a lamp or radio into the same electrical outlet and see if that device works.
If the lamp or radio doesn't work, the outlet is the problem. Unplug your computer and open your computer's case, if it is a desktop system. Look for loose cables, cards and connections and attach them firmly. Blow out any dust with a can of compressed air. Also, check your computer's memory chips to make sure they are all plugged in and seated properly. Close the case once you are done and plug in the computer. Disconnect any USB devices connected to your computer and try to power up the system. Sometimes a USB device not connected properly will stop a computer system from powering on. Disconnect any new devices recently added to your system. Sometimes new devices will conflict with other hardware within your computer and cause an overload on your computer's power supply. Disconnect any other devices connected to your computer such as the keyboard, mouse, monitor, printer or scanner and plug your computer into a electrical outlet by itself. Check to see if the computer works. If does work, shut it down and connect just one device, such as the monitor. Turn on the computer and monitor and see if everything works. Continue connecting devices until you find the one that is stopping your entire system from powering up. Hope it helps.

Inspiron 2305 power cord doesn't turn the desktop on

After connecting the AC adapter to a wall outlet and to the computer press the power button the right side of the inspiron. The button itself should then lite up white if the power adapter is good. If not, check the power outlet you are using. Plug in something else and see if it works on this wall outlet. Some outlets are connected to a wall switch. If its still a nogo you may need to replace the AC adapter.

Connect and then disconnect my pc to put it back somewhere in the house but when connected no longer lit up again and I wonder if the motherboard could be damaged and would like to know how to check

Hi you need to check the power cable which connect the computer to the wall outlet,make sure it is properly connected and you should also try plugging the computer into another wall outlet.If the problem still exist use another power cable to connect the computer,if the problem still exist you will need to change the power supply in the computer,if you that don't solve the problem that would mean your motherboard is dead.
