I am having Computer overheating problem

Specs: Windows 2003, Ibm
Ok so a few days ago my computer overheated and started to turn on then after 5 seconds turn off. So I unplugged it and put it in a cool room for a few days. I plugged it back in today an it revolted fine. But the problem now is that the computer doesn't recognized the mouse keyboard or monitor. Wel the keyboard lights blinks on the off but isn't recognized by the computer. So can someone explain exactly what's wrong?! Can this be fixed?! Or isn't fried?!! The fans and everything works perfectly fine inside it boots up normally but just won't recognize those components any more.

You didn't fix the cause of the overheating, all you did was give the system time to cool down. And being that you moved it from one room to another then back again, you probably hooked something back up incorrectly.

Nooo everything is plugged in correctly. I checked numerous times. But I see tons of other people are having the same problem. But if you don't know a solution please don't respond gracias.

The solution is to fix the cause of the overheating. If you opened the case did you also clean out the build up of dust/dirt in there? If you used a vacuum cleaner on the computer you probably damaged it.

You need to provide more details of everything you did. How do you know the computer was overheating?

"Nooo everything is plugged in correctly"

You seem to think moving the computer from one room to another is how to fix overheating, so I question whether you reconnected things correctly. For instance, if the mouse & keyboard both have PS/2 plugs & you may have plugged the k-board to mouse port & mouse into k-board port.

Wait a minute. How do you know it boots up normally if the monitor isn't 'recognized'--which I guess means nothing is showing up on the monitor. Or if something does show on the monitor, what is it? You must be getting some error messages.
