I doubt it, if he would've had a shorted USB mouse all Windows would've done is reported back that the USB device is not recognized. The only way I see it could've happened is ESD build up possibly through carpeting and not discharging. So it's possible that he transferred that discharge into his USB port which did not have proper ESD protection.

But I used to do this all the time in elementary school, drag and rub my feet on the carpet floor with the rubber soles of my shoes in the school library and then !ZAP¡ another kid. Fun times.

The only other actual way you could possibly burn out or short out your USB connection is by plugging in a device backwards. But that is impossible with most USB devices because they can only be plugged in one way. The only types of device that can be plugged in backwards and fry are developer type boards that have dual contacts on both sides of the PCB for USB connection. Granted mouses aren't built that way I suspect ESD is the culprit. So the OP might want to check out his home for the causes of ESD build up i.e. carpeting. Otherwise touch metal before you plug anything in. But I assume by the OP's frustration that this might have happened before by ESD.

It could be an issue with your PSU. (or socket the computer is plugged into) I wonder if it isn't grounding properly, and when you went to plug the mouse in you accidentally grounded the board through the usb port. All of the usb 2.0 ports are through the P67 chipset so it could have blown out the chipset.

Are you using a native 220v Corsair HX 1000W, or are you using an power transformer?

This makes a lot of sense.

Have you used the reset cmos jumper already? I find that usually fixes port static discharge issues, although the "burnt smell" does make it sound like something might be damaged permanently.

Can you see any capacitors that look burned on the motherboard?
