Hi,
I have a Dell XPS 410 running windows xp and every time i try to turn on the computer it shows the Windows XP logo as if it is about to boot but then the screen goes blank and the power button on the monitor turns orange. Moving the mouse or typing on the keyboard both fail to yield any change. I have had this problem with several monitors I have tried plugging into this computer that work fine on every other computer.

I have been trying to figure this out forever so hopefully someone can help!

Adam

Can you boot into Safe Mode ?

This is a desktop, right ?

This could be malware.

Did anything significant happen just before the problem ?

Same thing happens when I try to boot into safemode. It starts booting as if it is going to work but then the monitor just goes into sleep mode automatically.

Erm.. why do you call this "sleep mode" ?

Do you mean Hibernate ? Standby ? Does it SAY it is going into one of these, or does it simply turn off ?

You could have a hardware problem. Bad Power Supply. Or motherboard.

Post a list of your system specs.
