    I have a brand new comp. running windows xp. I set it to defrag. Put
    it on stand-by and went to bed. Next day I move the mouse to restart.
    Nothing. Comp. just hums. No pic. on monitor. I shut it down and
    reboot. Still nothing. Comp. just hums and no Pic.

    I call a tech. He tells me to pull the plug on comp., wait 30 secs.
    and re-plug. power on and everything works fine. What did I do wrong
    and why did pulling the power cord fix the prob.

    Thank-you....Eddie
