Power Surge on Usb...

I was streaming fortnite pretty happily when I go to eat dinner. I start my pc back up and start playing- my headphones subtly start smoking up- not much just enough for me to notice and only for like 2 seconds. Then "Power surge on usb port" comes up-

Note: I recently got a c920 webcam for my stream and plugged it in 3-4 hours before and streamed for that long.

I really need help and I turned my pc off completely in case of more smoke (ya never know)

Edit: I RMA'd my headset and razer will be sending me back a new pair- razer support is great if you catch the right person.

It was probably just a malfunction with the headphones. The USB port did exactly what it was supposed to do and protected your computer. Your headphones might be fried though, however as long as you don't plug them back in, you should be okay. I would just keep an eye on it and what things you plug into it.

So do I need to get another headset?

Most likely, I mean, I would test it in another device and see if it works, but be careful.

What other things could be a problem? Mobo port? Psu?

I'll try on my mac...I guess
