Recently I suffered a short power anomaly that killed the power in my house for less than a second. While my computer is connected to a surge protector, it seems the craah was enough to cause harm to my PC. The only issue I currently have is that the USB connections on the motherboard itself seem to be malfunctioning when the cpu is under heavy load. (Causes distorted audio from mic, distorted video from webcam, loss of mouse control, etc.) I've done everything I could think of to troubleshoot on the software end, even reinstalling windows to an older iso, and im convinced it's something to do with the hardware. I've also tested my memory and harddrive and they both seem fine. My question is: has anyone had a similar thing happen to them? I just want to confirm if it's an issue with the motherboard itself (I'm almost 99% sure it is) but also possibly rule out any issues with the cpu and psu. I'm ok with replacing all 3 if its easiest.
Oh and I updated the bios to the most recent version without any issues and reset the cmos with jumper and battery :)
