Compaq Presario SR1123WM PC Desktop will not start up.
My desktop has a sleep-mode option. Last time I used it I did not shut it down completly so it seems as if it placed itself on sleep mode. The next time i went to use it, it powered up just fine but it will not start-up, windows xp in this case. I simply hear it run and run but nothing else happens, the screen is blank and neither the mouse nor the keyboard work. I tried unplugging all the hardware and starting it up that way but ended up with the same results. I also tried removing the power chord for a few minutes and then starting it once again but same results. What do I do now?

yes, you can definitly connect your desktop computer to the network wirelessly. you just need to have a wireless adaptor and i prefer you to have a 2wire brand adaptor for its much easier to download a driver on it so you can able to use it wuicly and browse using your desktop computer that wil be connected wirelessly.
If you have a sleep button on your keyboard, be sure that it is not stuck. Otherwise, go inside your computer to settings. Check to see if someone has programmed it to sleep at certain times, or "shut down".
Hi, "Sleep" mode or "standby" mode allows your computer to go on standby or sleep until you "wake" it up again. This is a power saving feature which is usually used for a few hours. You can change it to completely shut down everything (including power supply) in power supply options in your control panel. Check out your help section for sleep or standby options. Hank
Go to start button, control panel, then power options.
When you open power options look to the left side and you will see choose when to turn off display, set it for longer then you will use it so you shut down the system first.
Same with the second one, choose when the computer sleeps.
Just in case you let it sleep, go to start, in the search field type devise, this opens devise mgr, now go to mouse and pointing devise.
Click on the plus or arrow to expand, you will see your mouse, now right click on it, and pick properties, now click on the power management tab, and make sure the box is checked that says Allow this devise to wake computer.
Get windows 7, or downgrade to xp. lol kidding. During the start up, i beleve its either f11 or f12 press them it should bring you to a boot screen. follow option. or you can use the compaqs built in recovery system. reinstall your system. vista has a option to save its old files for transfer.
if you can view your desktop and use the menus, go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, if you had enabled this option earlier then you can restore the system to an earlier known date when you system worked.
else you can try installing winXP again, try the option to "Update" when the install option comes on.
else start PC, before the WinXp screen comes on press F8 key, use the Safe Mode to start PC, if you can see everything then shut down and restart in normal mode.
buy yourself a new hdd (you can never have too much storage)... replace the one in there with it... reload windows onto the new hdd... you can then put your old hdd back in and save any files you really needed before formating... it my experience if you're careful the virus (if that what it is will not be able to cause trouble on the slave disc)
Try the following:
1. If connected to surge protector, make sure it's on. If it is, then...
2. Try plugging computer directly into wall and turn on...if no then...
3. Unplug and plug the power cord back in and then try to turn on...if nogo then...
4. If there's a switch on the back of your pc that has 120/240. Switch it back and forth back from 240 back to 120, turn on again...if no go then...
5. Unplug everything from the back of your pc except power cord, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Try again. If it still doesn't turn on.. let me know. By chance, has any power outage occured or any change been done to pc since it was last turned on?
