I opened the tower to see how many memory slots I have available, and unplugged the monitor first. When I replugged it and powered up, I got a blank screen; the monitor buttons give me the message: In power save mode. Press any key on keyboard or move mouse.

Also, neither the mouse nor the keyboard light up.

I've checked all the connections and they seem to be fine.

I am running windows xp on a Dell Dimension 2300.

What else can I do?:)

hello Frankjohn,
Both mouse (laser, normally with a red light) and keyboard are dead - no lights showing. So I can't see anything on the screen except that little message when I press one of the monitor buttons. The message asks me to press a key or move the mouse to come out of power save mode.

Mouse and keyboard are both connected. The only thing I did was disconnect the monitor and reconnect it. And I cleaned the whole machine with a hoover - it was very dusty.

Thanks for helping.

Nick
