does not change anything at all.. issue persistentMaybe a better/safer procedure would be to: first, power off completely using the PSU rocker switch. Then press and hold the front panel power switch, to discharge the PSU capacitor. Only then: plug/unplug the USB to motherboard connector, or any other kind of system modifications required. Then re-enable the PSU rocker switch, and finally power on using the front panel power switch.
Some plug-in connectors are relatively safe to use while the system is powered on, such as USB 2, 3, & C, DP, HDMI, ethernet or audio cables.
Not safe: PCIe cards, PS/2, DVI, VGA, & probably any direct-to-motherboard circuit board connection.
