Vista Home Premium SP2
I am having multiple problems with my computer. One is a racing CPU fan. Before I can tackle that, I need to know how to get the computer out of power saving mode. The instructions say to strike any keyboard key or move mouse. Please note: When my computer goes into power saving mode, there is no power to the keyboard nor mouse, so neither can be used to get out of power saving mode. I cannot access the BIOS. I have tried many things I found on the Internet. Nothing works.
I tried clearing the CMOS using the method in the owner's manual. It didn't help. I have unplugged the power supply, removed the CMOS battery and then held down the power button for two minutes. It did not help. I even re seated the RAM memory. It did not help. My monitor works fine when using it with another computer.
I don't know if the racing fan and power saving mode are both part of the same problem or not. This computer has been on a shelf for six months. When I cranked it up, it ran fine. It was on the second boot that all this started. I have cleaned the CPU fan. It didn't help.
