Computer shuts itself down,poswersave,

Specs: Windows XP home Edition
Windows CardSpace showed up on identities, can't delete it. After that it repeatedly shuts itself down, says power save mode. Now when turned on, lights show on computer, monitor light blinks, after several minutes, can hear music when windows comes up but screen stays black. Have tried F11 at startup.

Did you try in Safe Mode?

If it's a file you mean it can be deleted using a Linux Live CD (such as Puppy Linux).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If the screen stays black as the computer seemingly boots normally, especially to the point of hearing the Windows Logon music, it sounds like there is a connection problem with the monitor. In addition, many monitors will go to Power Save Mode if they don't detect a connection to the computer.

I've never used Windows Cardspace, but it looks like you can disable its connection with other applications by going to Windows Control Panel > User Accounts > Windows Cardspace > Preferences > un-check: Enable accessibility applications

You could also try disabling the Windows Cardspace service.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
