Unhappy Blown My Motherboard, I Think.

Hi Guys,

Basically I Plugged A Device Into A Usb Port, And Bam The Whole System Crashed, Pressing The On Button Now Does Nothing.

Upon Inspection Of The Insides All Looks Ok, No Scorch Marks, No Cracked/Leaking Capacitors.

Mother Board Type Is HP dx2400 iPiBL-LB Intel G33

There Is No L.E.Ds On The Board Itself, Only One On The Back Of The Power Unit, Which Is Flashing And Used To Be Solid. If I Remove Everything From The Motherboard And Plug The Power Cord In I Get A Solid Light But Once I Connect Power To The Motherboard She Flashes,

Not Really That Techie On Hardware, But Im Willing To Give Anything A Shot.
Anything I Can Do? Or Is It Time To Buy A New Mother For This Machine??

I'd say try replacing the PSU first; will be cheaper.

Or if you have another computer test the PSU you currently have in that PC.
If the 2nd PC doesn't boot, the PSU is the problem and then you can buy another PSU.

I would avoid testing the bad power supply in another computer. If it is damaged theres alway the possibility it could damage the working PC.

Agreed... Test the good PSU in the possibly bad computer, not the possibly bad PSU in the good computer.
