Hello all,

Having a very strange problem and I've looked everywhere for a solution.

Problem:
Monitor and keyboard are not functioning. When I boot up they work for a few seconds while the Dell desktop loads, then after loading XP the monitor goes to standby and the lights on the keyboard turn off. Safe mode works however. My computer was running all night, and I came to get it out of standby and it wouldn't react.

My attempts at solving:
-unplugged power supply, monitor, and keyboard
-rebooted
-tried restoring settings from a previous day (still went to monitor standby)

I'm really worrying it's a virus, and one I'd have no idea how to remedy. Any have suggestions?

Thank you.

Have you got a USB key with a Light on it?

If so plug that in and see if the light stays on when the others go out.

If it doesnt, i would lean towards a motherboard fault.
