Is it hanging like at the Dell screen? I did this with a neighbor's computer the other day and it worked. You need to totally disconnect the power supply. Since you have a desktop, pull the power cord out of the back. Then go to the power on button and hold it for like 8 seconds, that will get everything out of the capacitor. Wait about 2 to 3 minutes and then turn it back on. If it works, it is just what you would call an overload of the electronics and you need to clear it, something similar to what you need to do sometimes with your modem/router. Hope that works, if not, you need to give more information.

Don't close out of that window and try running a scan. Or second, are you able to look at your startup menu in msconfig?
