It could be a software glitch that is preventing your motherboard from powering up: try to unplug the main power cord from the main AC source for about 5 minutes, replug and power Desktop again and see if it is back to normal. Good luck! Hope it works for you!
How do you "warm" the computer, so that it will start properly?
Take a close look at the motherboard.
Look for those round "towers" with "silver" coloured caps.
They are capacitors.
If any caps are _not_ flat, i.e., they are bulging,
or if any caps show brown "rust" on top of the caps,
then those capacitors on the motherboard have gone bad.
Before your motherboard _completely_ dies, backup "everything" to an external disk-drive, verify that the backup has worked, and then either "trash" the motherboard, and replace it. You'll have to reinstall Windows onto the new motherboard -- find the CD/DVD set that you used to install XP.
You should just be able to boot off the Windows XP cd and perform what is called a clean installation. This will format the drive and give you access to all 160 gigs of drive space. Seems like you've already lost all your data, but that's where to go.
try to run it with out the memory and see if you have the right kind, put one stick in and try that, if still does not work, then you must have a short on the motherboard. I would replace that. most of the time the power box goes out it shorts the motherboard out too. if a green light is on, the power box is good and the motherboard is out. Farren
