hackintosh wouldn't turn on until removed USB devices

Recommended Posts

I let my hackintosh (which has been working fine) sleep last night (which I usually let it). When I woke up, the power strip had turned off, and when I tried turning on the computer it wouldn't turn on. The Power LED on my motherboard was continuously blinking. I tried resetting the hard switch on the power supply but it didn't help. It was only when I removed my USB devices like mouse and keyboard, did the computer turn on. It works fine now, except the two USB ports that I originally had plugged in my usb devices to won't work anymore. They still show up on the system info, they just wont work when i plug usb devices in them. Should I be worried? Is my motherboard potentially broken?
