Do you see any sparks coming out of that port? Looks like you have a short somewhere on your motherboard.

I would replace that motherboard before it starts spreading to other parts of it. I had an old EVGA board that would destroy every flash drive/external hard drive I plugged into the back ports. It ended up taking a graphic card before I introduced it to my baseball bat.
