[RESOLVED]

Hey, I've got an eMachines 366is, and the system was working fine until I connected my cuecat barcode scanner. I was wiggling the wires (because the cuecat is broken), and all of a sudden, the system went into suspend, which I could not bring it out of because the keyboard and mouse stopped working. The power button also did not function. I cycled the power with the power cord, and when I plugged it back in, the system appeared to boot fine, except the power buttons does not light, there is no video, and the keyboard and mouse do not function. The only reason I know it's running is because the NIC LED is lit and the PSU fan is running. Can anyone figure out the problem? The power button will not turn it off. The only way to shut it down is to unplug it.

You could have possibly shorted out and damaged the USB controller on the motherboard
You might be able to get a USB controller card and get things to work

One thing I forgot to mention was that the cuecat was connected via PS/2. Could that still be the case? I don't plan on buying any new parts on a 10-year-old computer.

Never mind. After the computer took a little rest while unplugged, it started working again.
