Default Killed my computer

I reached for my mouse,got a static discharge through a plastic mouse into the computer. The PS2 mouse port no longer will function,keyboard is OK.
Got new wireless rodent, USB hook up appears to function OK except when I put computer into stndby- the cooling fans continue to run, the HD skreeches to a hault and after it has been off for an hour or so it will not respond- must be unplugged to shut down. The mouse is a logitech.
Could the BIOS have been affected by the static discharge?
I live in the southwest and highly recommend wireless mousing for those who live in high static areas. Mice are cheaper than computers.

I'm new and a novice so don't rain on me too hard

Thanks Smoky

Uumm my computer does that on standby as well, the fans stay on, and HDD turns off, I think I can change that in BIOS though.

Which processor do you use?
Do you have any spare motherboard about?
