Default Help!!

My computer started acting up today. It kept popping up with an icon saying that windows had detected an unknown UBS device. At the time, I had no USB devices plugged in. When I sat down tonight I plugged in my thumb drive to get a paper for school off of it. About 5 seconds after plugging it in my computer shut off and now it will not turn on. I am getting no power at all. Any Ideas?

Computer:
AMD64 3400+
Motherboard- ZNF3-250

hmm, perhaps clearing cmos and disconnecting the 20pin connector off your mobo.

I have heard strange things about psus having imagined shorts after something goes wrong with usb/firewire.

lemme see if I can find somethin to help you out
