Today when I connected my SSD in my front USB ports after few minutes my mouse stopped working, I didn't noticed that I connected my SSD in 2nd front USB port. My 2nd front USB port is kinda broken, it keep disconnecting USB devices randomly and frequently whenever I connect any external storage device except USB flash drives.

Restarting PC fixed the issue but I'm worried that this somehow damaged my motherboard in some way like short circuit or anything similar, I have no idea. Is there's a way to check motherboard USB health or motherboard health in general?

My motherboard is MSI B450 Carbon Pro AC
My case is NZXT H500
