Stuck in power save

  1. Afternoon everyone, I am having a problem that I hope someone here might be able to help me with. On this site I have posted my computer specs under Fink627 and it is with this system that is my issue. When I put this sytem together I had no problems with it, everything when together and worked just fine. There were 2 user accounts set up, 1 for me and 1 for my daughter. On mine I went in and took off the power save options in windows, My daughter did not. A few days ago she was on and was distracted by one of her friends. When she went back to the computer it had gone into power save - and now we get into my banging the head against the wall issue - and it WONT come out. I have tried everything to get it to restart and it wont. Right now I am down to just the motherboard, power supply, cpu and ram. The bios wont even log on. Any ideas as to what the issue is?

    Thanks for your help.

    Try a hard power down. Press and hold the button on the front panel. Or unplug and replug.
