Default USB Tester???

is there a device to test if a short is happening in USB port, my buddy is having issues with his sound going out and every time we unplug his USB cables the sound comes back on, no errors are showing up in the computer management so i was thinking it may be a short happening, i would just like to know if there may be a device to test this

Is this USB Ports at the front (On the case) or at the back (On the Motherboard)?
