i had problems yesterday with what appeared to be a dll file related to nvidia graphics card. all seemed ok last night and turned on today and was fine left running all day came back and it was in standby mode but could not get it out of standby and had to restart pc which then causes xp pro to lock at logo screen. has anybody any ideas i can get into safe mode and device manager doesnt show any hardware faults......????

when you say xp locks what do you mean. on my network computers with xp pro mind you, i press sleep on the keyboard and it standbys and then when i press wakeup it says it is locked and i need password to unlock it so maybe something like that happened.
