    I think you need to replace the logic board then. Best way to deal with this, is bringing it to an Apple Store and have them look at it.

    If you are proficient enough to do it yourself, go to www.ifixit.com to find the correct part(s) and guides and then scout eBay for lower prices, as a logic board replacement will cost around 400 to 600 USD, maybe even more.

    Well you can do it yourself then. I now that you can replace the MacSafe connector, but i don't think you can replace the USB port.

    Take it to the nearest apple store and ask for a flat-rate repair. That's your cheapest option, usually between $300-400 depending on the MBP.

    They will ship it out to their repair facility and they repair anything damaged inside.

    Just throw it out the windows. It's useless now.
