Exclamation stuck in safe mode
my home pc is stuck in power safe mode. When I turn it on, the screen says "power safe mode, press any key or move the mouse". The mouse and keyboard do not respond. I have tried f8 and all that, but again the keyboard does not respond. The dvd rom does not spin. I can not use this thing at all. I changed the battery after it happened and still same story. It isn't running in safe mode because it isn't doing anything. It is a e machine, about a year old running on windows xp. Any suggestions? My husband has a laptop, is there a way to hook them up to each other so I can atleast get my pictures from it?

Does it say "Safe" or "Save"?

EDIT:
Either way, try this:
Unplug the power cord for the PC and the Monitor and then hold the power button down for about 30 seconds. then connect everything back and see if it boots.
