I just moved my pc and after setting it back up it won't work. It turned on and loaded up to the login screen (Windows XP) but my keyboard and wacom tablet wouldn't work. I rebooted and now the LG monitor goes directly into Power Saving Mode, the lights on my tablet and keyboard aren't on, and while the desktop is on (I can hear it running), it's not doing anything but eating power. Any idea what might be causing this? I tried plugging it into another outlet but that didn't work.

Hi Carys
It is possible that when you moved the pc that either a memory stick or
add on video card (if you have one) have become unseated, there is also
a chance that a MB connection has become detached.
You will need to open your case to check the above out, remove the power
cord from the wall first, and make sure you taken anti static precautions
before touching anything inside, you can do this by touching a bare metal
part of the case, remove and then reseat the memory stick/s securely, do
the same if you have an add on video card and then check all connections
from the psu to the MB, HDD, Optical drives etc.
If you require any further assistance I will be happy to help.
