Answers :

Suggest you contact Dell Support, (Contact Us), and see about getting the Restoration Disk for it.
Also, although it may sound a little 'Out There', do not rule out that the power supply is bad. It may be that Electrolytic Capacitors are leaking paste out. Makes the power supply weak, and will only go so far in booting up.
