This is my niece's computer I am asking about so I don't have much info on it.
Every time she tries to start it, it will begin to load windows xp as normal but before it finishes, goes to sleep mode. It will restart with the same result each time.
About all I know is that it is a desktop, and I have had her try it with the keyboard disconnected.
Thanks and if there is information needed for a diagnosis, let me know and I will try to contact her.

Hmmm, sleep mode?  How does she know its sleep mode and not actually the computers turned it self off?

She says it has a popup that reads something about entering sleep mode.

Try getting her to boot it into safe mode, if it functions correctly it would tend to point towards software (OS error), if it does the same, i would be thinking hardware..
