I just built a new computer recently and everything seems to work fine except for the sleep mode. After it is in sleep mode I will try to resume and the computer will attempt to start up. You can hear the computer starting to work but after 2-3 seconds, everything shuts off. A few seconds later it tries to restart itself, and the same thing happens. Then it does it again and stays on, but it never outputs anything to the monitor.
Another problem affecting this is after the problem above occurs, I held the power button until it turned off and tried to reboot manually. After the computer started, again it would not output anything to the monitor.
The only way I can get the computer to actually work again is to shut it down, unplug re-plug the power cable, and start it back up. After I do that it resumes Windows to wherever it was before it went into sleep mode.
So first question is, is this a software problem or could there be a faulty piece of hardware from when I built it?
Second, if it is software, how would I remedy this?
