Can't get XP out of sleep mode

Specs: Windows XP
My wifes computer seems to be stuck in sleep mode. When she first switches it on it goes to the advanced boot menu. As soon as you choose an option (any option, including safe mode)
it simply goes back into sleep mode. Have tried a few of the simpler options like holding the power button down, checking all the cables etc, but it makes no difference. Is there any way that I can attempt to boot it up using the XP disk ?

You should be able to boot using the XP disc, but instead of installing Windows, try to do a troubleshooter from the disc.
