Well I was using my HP Pavilion A705W today & pluged in my ZENN (like a IPod) like I usually do & the pop up window came up, OVERLOAD on the USB port. Screen froze & then I smelt something, powered down, re-started, fans came big time but no sound, bumps, giggles etc. The screen did not start up and I checked it w/another monitor which said no signal. Nothing is burnt that I can see and now capacitors are bulging. No traces, no smells, things look fine. If you look at the bottom right you will see a grey cord that comes form the USB port. Was looking to get another one but not sure what to get. No gaming, just business, e-mail, surfing. Looking to stay around 200-250 but as I have been looking I haven't seen aything. I'm on my Vista Lap-top right now. Any suggestions.

P.S. 5 yrs old. & the card yoyu see is the old phone modem.
