i got an adafriut metro mini v2 yesterday and was using it until windows gave me an alert saying "usb surge protection" or smt along those lines it then dropped the board which continued to get power but had dropped all communications and ide said smt along the lines of "COM9 not connected' (com9 was the port i was using" the tx light and power light are still on but the rx light isn't. i have tried switching ports and resetting both my computer and the board . have i fried my board?

additional info it was not set on a conductive surface and was connected just to an led for a test instead of an led strip i had it all on a breadboard and was on a wood table. the led had a proper resistor in front of it and i was using a 10k ohm resistor for the board just as in the image Image

Sounds like something is getting shorted somewhere.

Are you able to remove all external items from the Metro Mini expect for the USB cable?
