Re: monitor going to sleep

my kids have a Compaq running vista home basic. we have had this
computer for over a year but has not been connected to the internet
until two weeks ago. now the monitor went to sleep and we can't wake it.
there are no lights on the keyboard and we get no response at all. i
have read all kids of posts about this problem but most involve changing
settings or updating drivers, we can't do any of that because i can't
get any response. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

The "monitor" is only the screen... it sound from your description as
if the whole computer is shut down and won't power up, i.e., there are
no lights anywhere.

When you push the power button does ANY light come on?
