So I accidentally had a broken usb 2.0 adapter for my vr headset in my pc usb slot with the oculus cord connected to the usb plug as an adapter and it shut off my pc and I turned it on and it turned of immediately and it repeats until I manually shut it off, what do I fix?

Have you disconnected the Usb adapter ? If not do that and see if the PC works then.

If you are sure there is nothing in the usb port ie get a bright light and shine it in the port. Look for any bent pins, debris, etc.
If the port is clean and no bent/shorted pins, then clear cmos and attempt to pw ON. If it works, great. If it does not work then you will need to swap parts with known good units for testing ie motherboard, ram, pw supply, etc.

I think it got power shocked when plugging in USB to my motherboard so my new mobo comes in soon.
