I am running windows XP on my desktop, and am having major problems. It loads up and the green display light on the screen says it is on and then it just switches over to stand by with an orange light. There is nothing on the screen at all it is completely blank. Can anyone help? I have no discs to re-load windows on as when I bought the pc you just plugged it in and it loaded up automatically. PLease help. I am feeling v desperate
