problem after cleaning PC

  raggy 2 08:29 11 Mar 2008

I took my PC off my desk last night to clean it (outside not inside) and dust it all down and after putting it all back I started it up and the screen now says
F1 to resume (which i cant)
F12 to boot

not sure of the rest of the exact wording as im at work and using work PC, family annoyed with me now, no PC etc I have tried unplugging everything and re-plugging it all but its the same message on my screen.
Any advice would be very welcome

If you were "dusting it" make sure that there are no keys stuck down.

It is possible that you have reconnected mouse and keyboard in each other's position if they are both PS2 connectors.

Will it work in safe mode.If so last good configuration or system restore.Check the keyboard plug that no wires were bent when putting it back in.If you have an other keyboard try that.I had to replace my grandaughters keyboard which had the same sort of problem.

Press and Hold the start button to turn computer off, then check the Keyboard Connections

just to say thanks to all that replied, my pc is now back up and running looked like a dodgy plug on the keyboard.
