Compaq-- boots into power saving mode

  driving man 09:23 04 Dec 2007

Hello to you all
Ihave a rather annoying problem in that booting up my Compaq Presario desktop, 50% of the time it reverts to "power saving move" ie shutting down and no screen
Cannot find any reason for this, but it sure is annoying
Any one in Forum land with any ideas please
PS fan is fine and no dust or fluff inside so is probably not overheating
