Question about PC Desktops
Running XP. Computer won't come out of sleep mode. When I hit the space bar to bring it up, the fan and hard drive light kick on for a second and then back off. I shut the thing down using the power button and same thing when I try to turn it back on - fan and hard drive start to work and then turn off. If I continue to hit the power button, eventually the thing stays on but is not sending a signal to the monitor. The fan continues to run but the hard drive light goes out...
What to do?
Thanks in advance!
Ok, there could have been a graphics issue in the bios caused by the windows graphics drivers, heres what you could try........... remove the power cord from the back of the machine, remove the side panel to allow access to the motherboard, you will see a battery! take it out for 10 mins and push the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaing power from the motherboard, after 10 mins the CMOS should have cleared so you can replace the battery, plug in the power and turn the machine on hopefully you'll get a signal
