LEDs and Windows

I just received some LEDs I ordered for eBay and wanted to test them out because the last batched I ordered flashing LEDs by mistake. I didn't have a power source close by besides a microUSB plug connected to my Windows laptop so I connected the LED to the proper pins and it glowed. But then windows freaked out and wouldn't recognize any of my USB devices so I had to restart.

Let this be a lesson.
