What do I do? comp wont turn on.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I tried to plug in a usb mic into the back of my mobo but i had it backwards and when I tried to plug it in the computer shut down... I unplugged the psu turned it off, switched the outlet it was plugged into and tried booting it up and it didn't work. Did I somehow short out the mobo or psu? Did I fry anything else along with it?

Thanks,
Dan

edit: whelp... I think it's time someone redesigned usb and made it backwards compatable in more ways than one. biggrin.gif

Computer turned on when I left it for a little bit, but I definitely took a couple hundred hours off the life of the pc.

Hey!
Don't worry you did not do anything wrong. Best thing is to let it sit for a few minutes before plugging it back in. The only potential damage you could have done was to the USB port. But even then I doubt it.

It happens to all of us 8-)
