I made a bonehead move and plugged an internal USB cable into the 1394 header. After a few minutes, the computer shut off and the device (a flash drive in a multi card reader) literally melted. Now of course the computer won't boot, won't even go to POST.
I'm well aware that I probably killed the motherboard, but can anybody tell me if it's likely that other components could've been damaged in this scenario? Like RAM, power supply, vid card, hard drives? At the moment I don't have any spare parts or systems to narrow things down. Can I get some electronics wizards to give me their opinion as to whether the MB may have been the only thing damaged, so that hopefully I can salvage everything else??
