Broken USB leads to boot-up freeze
Windows works just fine, it only displays an unknown device under usb.
Linux on the other hand took it really hard. It freezes just after the setting hostname [...] message. By chance i was testing the voltages on the broken port when the system was freezed and accidentaly made a short [i was using an extension cable and i'm not sure whitch pair i shorted]. Surprisingly this accident unbloked my computer and it continued loading. The system froze again after the message starting HAL deamon [...] and continued after i applied the above "solution". After that it worked fine until the first restart/shut down when it seemed to hang again. The shut down eventualy completed on itself but during the process it kept telling me i have an unresponsive usb port(i think it was 7) and that a broken usb cable might be the problem but no cable was attached to my computer at the time.
I kept using Linux tis way a while now but the problem got worse, now i won't work even if i apply the short "trick" (it actualy work but i can not load any window manager because during their load X restarts).
If u know anyting i cold do or try to revive my system please don't hesitate.
