\015\012Try rebooting. If that doesn’t work, Dell states you need to do the next step.
\015\012Remove and Reseat Basic Hardware items:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Power Cord \015\012
  2. Memory \015\012
  3. Hard Drive
\015\012At this point, Dells says if that fails contact them.

\015\012If my hunch is correct, you may have something on the motherboard shorting a connection or you have a blown capacitor. Get some “canned air” and blow out the computer thoroughly. Some people have reported the same symptom having dust or other debris causing the issue, so give it a good blowing out,
\015\012
\015\012At the same time, inspect your motherboard thoroughly for an anomalies. If you see anything resembling the picture below, you have a serious motherboard problem which will require replacement.
