When starting computer I get the hanged screen 'preparing to standby'. The only way to get back to normal startup is to switch off the mains then start again. Any help
very welcome

What OS are you using?

Did you say that right? "When starting computer I get the hanged screen 'preparing to standby'"

I am using Windows XP. When starting PC I get 'Preparing to standby' with screen, mouse, and keyboard frozen. Only way to go is to switch off at the mainsand start again. Second attempt often successful.
