It doesn't sound like it's in standby mode, it sounds like it's not POSTing.

The PSU may be failing or already failed. Try disconnecting all nonessential hardware. The PSU may not be putting out enough power for the system to POST

The simplest thing to do, as it is a desktop computer, is go to the control panel, power options and set everything to never so the computer never goes into standby mode.
If this does not prevent the machine going into standby mode then we need to perform further troubleshooting.

Dell pc with windows xp wont come out of standby mode to be able to power up pc and use it


First, how do you know it's in standby mode?
I would turn it off and disconnect from the power source. Then plug it back in and try to start it. If possible, start it in safe mode to see if you can identify what is happening. If in safe mode, do a system restore back a day or two.

THe pc gives a steady orange light when power


Sounds like its in either standby or hibernate. Try unplugging it if it wont power on, press the power button, wait for 2 minutes then plugging it back in then turn it on. Afterwards, go into power managment, and find where it asks what do when you press your power button change from hibernate/standby to ask what to do.

Try this:

Shut down, unplug the AC adaptor, removed the battery, and hold the power button for up to 1 minute to discharge.

Make sure there are no stuck keys.

Restart.

Flashing standby message.


Are any of the buttons not making a click feel when you press them like maybe one is stuck?? You didnt say if the same thing happen with the radio as did with the cd. If it is then a switch is stuck or bad or a problem with the switch matrix for the Microprocesor . Only way to trouble shoot this is I would use a scope and check all of the matrix {ie scann lines as well as input lines for distortion or noise and make sure when the buttons are pussed that they change and switch accordinly. If they dont then the processors bad. Good luck
