Damaged USB shorting computer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My girlfriend plugged her IPhone charger into my computer into one of the back USB ports. I then get an error message from starting up my computer that says “USB overage” or something of the nature. I look it up and it seems likely USB related (damaged). After restarting the computer a few times, it does not start up and is flashing on and off. If I unplug the USB connector from the mother board it will start up. After it starts up I can plug it back into the motherboard so my USB devices work and everything is fine until I turn it off.

I looked at the USB port and none of them looked damaged, I am not sure how to deal with this now. The computer seems to flash, from shorting I assuming, while nothing is plugged in.


Mobo is ASUS Maximus V Gene

Try to clean out the socket (with air and alcohol).

Most important is the left most of the 4 contacts , it's the ground , pin 1 is +5V and the middle two are data

edit: it works fine without the Ipod charger plugged in?
