    I don't know if this is the correct forum topic to be posting this in but 30 minutes ago I put an iPod USB dock into my laptop to see if it would charge my iPod using my laptop. 10 seconds into the process the horrible smell of electronic materials burning came flowing out of my laptop along with a steady stream of smoke. Now both USB ports are not recognizing anything and it's very frustrating.

    I do not know what else anyone can tell you; the usb ports have been subjected to an over current condition. Most likely you have fried the usb ports on the laptop.

    I seriously doubt there is any troubleshooting you can do. If the system is still under warranty, return it and see what happens.
