Default I plugged in a usb into my laptop and it shut off and wont turn back on?

Fist of all, I don't know if this is the right section because I just joined this forum. But anyways.

I plugged in a usb into my asus laptop and it shut off and wont turn back on.
I was using a turtle beach headset and i plugged it into the usb port and then it shut off and wont turn back on?

It's an asus laptop that was bought about a couple weeks ago

It could be shorting out. Does it turn on when your headset is unplugged from the USB port? If you can get it to boot up without the headset, does it work in another USB port, or does the computer shut off when the headset is in another port as well?
