I am hoping someone better equiped than I will be able to help me. Recently I unplugged my desktop computer one pug at a time to put in a new multi-socket powerboard, while the computer was in hibernation mode (I had forgotten that I did not switch it off the night before but put it in hibernation instead). After plugging the computer back in, it wouldn't start, i.e it won't come out of hibernation. I have tried starting it in safe mode, last known good configuration, normal mode and any other available mode, but to no avail. It continues to go round and round and 're-enters sleep mode'. I have also tried reinstalling windows XP, and do a repair, but all I get is an error message saying there is a hardware problem.
Working one minute, not the next.
Can anyone help please? TIA

You should try pressing the "power-on" button on the base unit and see if Windows starts up.

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks LT, I have tried that. It starts up but stops at the 'last good cofiguration page' where it gives me the option of starting in the different modes. I have tried all the modes but unfortunately none of them work. It counts down until Windows restarts and them goes to 'entering sleep' mode and from there back to the original page above. It just goes round and round in a loop.

Have a look at this article from Microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907477, paying particular attention to the section "How to resume from a failed hibernation or from a failed standby".

Hope this works. :)
