Had a power outage the otherday. My computer is plugged in through a surge protector; but, when I attempted to start it I got little response. The computer starts up, and immediatly goes into powersaving mode. I cannot get into set up or start it in safe mode. It will not respond to the reset or the shutdown buttons.
This happend to me once before and was a video driver issue; however I could start it in safe mode and I could get into setup. I was running Win2k at the time; I am running XP now.
