Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop ?

DELL DIMENSION 5150 WON'T STAY ON

\015 TRYING TO SOLVE FOR A FRIEND. THIS UNIT, 3.5 YRS OLD, WILL NOT BOOT. IF I START FROM A COLD MACHINE, SOMETIMES I CAN GET WINDOWS UP THEN IT GOES DOWN, WITH IN 30 SECONDS. THE POWER SWITCH GOES ORANGE. AFTER A COUPLE OF MINUTES THE HIGH SPEED CPU FAN COMES ON, RUNS FOR 30 SECONDS AND GOES OFF. THE POWER LIGHT WILL GO OFF, ALSO. HOWEVER, THE LOWSPEED CPU COOLING FAN WILL REMAIN RUNNING. AFTER A COUPLE OF MINUTES THE CYCLE STARTS OVER. ANY SUGGESTIONS?\015\012THE ONLY UNIQUE THING ABOUT THIS MACHINE IS THE VIDEO CARD WHICH IS A POST-PURCHASE ADD-ON, WITH BOTH VGA AND DVI OUTPUT.\015\012I HAVE NO WAY OF TESTING THIS VIDEO CARD. THE POWER SUPPLY FAN WORKS SO I AM ASSUMING THAT IT IS O.K.\015
