Having problems with your Dell Dimension 9200 PC Desktop ?

My Dell Dimension 9200 will not power up reliabily.

\015 When it does power up and boot normally it shuts off after about 5 hours and then won't restart until it rests for ~12 hours.\015

What i did was myself i download I8KFanGUI, and turn my fan speed on high, now it has been working without shutting off, plus also I went into the bios and turned "speedstep" on, since i heard windows xp will use it regardless of the bios setting... that may have caused some problems itself causing a switch off. A few times though i could not start the pc, so i opened the case and snapped out the ram (not removing completely, just undoing the insert snaps on 1 side) and start the pc (might've had to unplug and replug a few times to get it to power on)... but i'm guessing i'll rarely have to do that... since i couldnt shut down the pc right 1 time it happened like that. But it is working now!
\015\012I may be able to help. Is the computer in a cool venilated space? It seems that after being powered on for that amount of time, it overheats and needs to cool down before being powered up. If possible you may want to consider PC cooling options, google is a good start for choosing a cooling kit-->\015\012
\015\012Another option, you can point a fan on the desktop where it is stored. This will help to keep the area around it cool, and essentially the computer.\015\012
\015\012Let me know if you have any questions.\015\012

My Dell Dimension 5000 is stuck with a solid amber light on the power switch and solid amber light on the motherboard. Switch 'clicks' ok but light only goes out when power lead removed. No fan, no bleeps, no bootup, just solid lights. The 5000 doesn't have other LED lights to assist. The PC got into this state after local power cut, when power returned.
