Windows XP resuming windows screen

By Heather1222 ·
Ive held down the off bottom 10-20 sec and then pushed f12 to do a diagnostic then prompt to check memory. Its doing so now. But when the diagnostic was finished it said everything was ok and to push "ok" to reboot. How can I get out of this screen and fix my laptop. It's a 5 year old windows xp dell

You may have to remove the battery pack,

as well as the AC power adapter, and let the laptop sit for a couple of minutes.
Then reinsert the battery pack, then hook up the power adapter. Now press
the power on button and see if it boots normally. You may get a boot menu
the first time to choose Normal, Safe Mode, etc. If so, choose normal.

When the computer tries to resume from hibernation mode, if you press F8 repeatedly right before it does it, you will get a menu giving you the option to delete the restoration data and boot normally.
