Desktop will not wake up

  Mike_R 22:55 11 Oct 2009

My Evesham is runnimg under Vista Home Premium with SP1. I put it into sleep mode fo about 4 to 5 hours and can't reload other than in safe mode, which it is running under now.
When switching on, the PC gets past the moving bar but then the screen goes blank after displaying "Digital no signal". I've got into the "Blue screen" repair menu and then restarted, but with no success.
Is there an easy way out of this problem other than reloading Vista from scratch?

How did you close down (switch off) the pc when it wouldn't wake up?

(This does have a bearing on what the problem is now)

Maybe try last good configuration or system restore in safe mode.

Pressed off button. No other way of turning PC off, apart from mains switch.
Last night before retiring, I turned PC off at the mains after closing in safe mode. This morning PC started in normal mode. I shall avoid "sleep" in future.
Thanks everyone for your replies.
