So the 5V line is still 4V4?
The voltage across R52 is consistent with 90mA drawn from the 5V line.
Measure the resistance from the 5V line to ground with no power. I'd guess this should not be less than about 1K.
If it is less look at your resistor values.
If it is more then check all voltages bearing in mind they will likely be proportionally lower than nominal.
If nothing obvious shows up try lifting the pins giving 5V power to each of the ICs as you did on U7.
Hopefully that should give us something to work with.
