I’ll try to make this short and easy to understand:
This evening I plugged an externally power USB Hub into the front IO of the PC I recently built. As soon and the connector made contact with the port, the PC immediately shut off. However, the USB fan I had plugged in was still working, uninterrupted. Seconds later, the smell of smoke filled the room and I was having a massive anxiety attack. The PC refuses to turn on at all as a result of all this.
What I would love to know right now is essentially what exactly happened. Did it kill my motherboard? My PSU (I doubt it)? EVERYTHING PERHAPS?! Also, could I be eligible for replacement parts? I should also mention I have no spare compatible parts to complete tests with.
I’d just like to thank y’all in advance. Any help or feedback is just really appreciated. :’(
