It would be interesting to know if the board is initially detected by your PC and then after a few seconds craps out and heat up. If that is the case the USB chip might still be OK and some other part (maybe one of the voltage regulators) has had it.
Should I get continuity between them if it is bad or am I all wrong with my assumption?
