After a recent thunderstorm (Derecho), we had a power outage. After power restored, I noticed my desktop's USB ports (and a PS/2 port) were not responding, even at a BIOS level. Tried a known good keyboard, not plugged in at the time. Still nothing. I'm thinking the USB ports are shot, but I want to test them.
I have a USB cable and a multimeter. I've stripped the cable and found hot and ground (orange and black). My only question is, how do I connect it to the multimeter? I have one of these cheaper ones, not sure how good it is. I've never used one before, and the manual doesn't make sense to me.
Here's the link to more details of my multimeter.
